Honoring the life of Lucius Hernandez

Lucius “Lu” Hernandez passed away late last week at the age of 93.

Originally from Mexico, Hernandez’s parents immigrated to the United States when he was a child and settled in East St. Louis, Ill. After graduating from the University of Dayton and teaching in Spain and Peru, Hernandez returned to the St. Louis area and began a 25-year career teaching foreign languages at CBC and later at Kenrick-Glennon Seminary.

“Lucius was a kind, soft-spoken and memorable man,” CBC President Michael Jordan, AFSC, said. “A father and a grandfather of CBC alumni, he was a Lasallian educator for over 20 years at CBC in our foreign language department. He was a mentor to many past and current associates at Christian Brothers College High School. May he rest in peace.”

Hernandez was a loving father, step-father, grandfather, great-grandfather.

We ask that our CBC community keeps Hernandez and his family in our prayers.
