From Today's Marist Brother Advent 2011

Richard LaRoseBr. Richard LaRose, a native of Lawrence MA and a '58 graduate of central Catholic High School entered the Marist Brothers' Novitiate the September after his graduation. He went on to earn a Doctorate in Chemistry and taught in various Marist schools in the U.S. and in Japan. A serious heart attach while in Japan and subsequent mini-strokes forced him to retire. It was a final heart attack that allowed him to return to the Father

Br. Richard's wit and daring added much to our Marist life and the schools where he taught. Over the 53 years he was a Brother, he influenced countless lives, and, evidently, God saw that it wa his time to "come home."
