It is with great sadness that we share the passing of long-serving faculty member Mr. Gregory Rapisarda on December 16 at the age of 83.
Mr. Rapisarda's time at Regis began in 1960 as a member of the Foreign Language Department, and for 41 years he taught Spanish, French, and Italian with charisma and care to generations of Regians. Upon his retirement in 2001, fellow teacher and former student Mr. James Scacalossi '83 P'15'20 praised Rapisarda as “a model for new teachers. He enjoyed his work and his enthusiasm to spread to the rest of the faculty. He was always willing to listen (and be listened to!), give advice, and offer words of encouragement. He was the professional, always looking to increase his own knowledge and improve his class. He continuously offered his best to the students, which other faculty members wish to emulate."
We will update this story as more information on services for Mr. Rapisarda becomes available. We give thanks for Mr. Rapisarda for his many years of selfless service to Regis, and we mourn this profound loss. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.
