Rev. Robert Pelton, CSC, longtime faculty fellow of the Kellogg Institute for International Studies and founder and director emeritus of its Latin American/North American Church Concerns (LANACC), died Monday, Nov. 4. He was 98.
"We all knew Fr. Bob as a faith-filled priest, a dedicated teacher-mentor, and a tireless champion for social justice. He was relentless is his efforts to build bridges between individuals and cultures, " said Rev. Robert Dowd, CSC, his friend, colleague, and brother in Holy Cross. "Fr. Bob loved being part of the Kellogg community and his perspective always served to humanize us."
The Kellogg Institute has created several webpages honoring the memory of Fr. Bob, with a slideshow of photos, links to various articles and tributes, and an opportunity for visitors to contribute their own remembrances of him. Click here for the memorial tribute pages.
