OUR CONDOLENCES...
The Department of Foreign Languages mourns the loss of their beloved colleague Richard Kent Crome, who passed away Sunday, March 19, at age 76. Visitation will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, March 24, at the First Presbyterian Church, 311 Seventh St., Charleston. Services honoring and celebrating his life will begin at 10 a.m. Saturday, March 25, at the church. Further details are available in his obituary.

Richard taught all levels of Spanish at Eastern from 1987-2011. He shared his love of Spanish and Latin American language and culture with everyone, from participants in his Amish reading group in Arthur, to his interns from Mexico and Colombia, to his undergraduate students here at Eastern. His generosity of spirit, open heart, love of life and dedication to enriching the lives of others are his most enduring legacy.
