A Literature Professor Passes

Robert Lee Conners Conners, Robert Lee, 72, passed away Tuesday, April 13, 2010 due to complications of Parkinson's disease. He was an English Literature Professor at many Lutheran colleges and universities during his 42 year career among which was St. John's in Winfield, Kansas. It was there that I met this fine professor & was introduced to the work of GERARD MANLEY HOPKINS in his literature classes. Bob encouraged the exploration of this work, which was very important for me in my life's journey.

Bob was survived by many children & grandchildren and will be missed by many.
