Brother Martin Fallin '54

Brother Martin Fallin, who was a teacher and administrator at several Christian Brothers Schools for 55 years, including 21 years at Saint Mary's College, died July 8 at Mont La Salle in Napa. He was 78.

Brother Martin was born Robert William Fallin in Springfield, Miss. He graduated from the Christian Brothers' Junior Novitiate in Napa and entered the novitiate in 1949. He pronounced final vows in 1956.

He graduated from Saint Mary's College in 1954 and received a master's in education from Immaculate Heart College in Los Angeles in 1968. He taught at Sacred Heart High School, San Francisco; Cathedral High School, Los Angeles; La Salle High School, Pasadena; Christian Brothers High School, Sacramento; and Justin-Siena High School, Napa.

Brother Martin began working at Saint Mary's in 1988, and he held academic and administrative positions during his 21 years at the College. He retired to the Christian Brothers retirement community in Napa in October 2009.

"I always remember him having a great sense of humor," Brother President Ronald Gallagher said. "He was a great example of the kind of Lasallian presence we talk about to our students and our staff."

He is survived by his nephew, Timothy Fallin, and relatives in California and Oklahoma.

Brother Martin was buried at the Mont La Salle cemetery.
