In Memoriam: Louis T. Falcone '37, Distinguished Benefactor

Louis T. Falcone Sr., a member of the Class of 1937 and one of the college’s leading benefactors, died peacefully on February 26 in Sarasota, Fla. He was 91.

 A practicing certified public accountant for more than 60 years, Mr. Falcone founded his own firm, L.T. Falcone PC; son Louis Jr. ’94 MST now heads the company. It is based in Milton, Mass., where Mr. Falcone and his family lived for several decades before moving to Florida 10 years ago.

The Falcone Family Foundation has advanced the philanthropic interests of the alumnus; his wife, Barbara; and their children. Here, their generosity has benefited the Bentley Fund, the Adamian Academic Center, successive capital campaigns, and other college initiatives.

Mr. Falcone was part of the Harry C. Bentley Society Founder’s Circle of leadership donors for many years, and a lifetime member of the President’s Club. In 1996, the Hillside residential complex on campus was renamed the Falcone Apartments to honor the family’s longstanding commitment. Bentley further recognized Mr. Falcone’s personal and professional achievements in presenting him with the Distinguished Alumni Award in 1997.
