Dr.grossiSt. Mary’s University mourns the loss and celebrates the life of one of its dedicated faculty – Dr. Vittorio “Vic” Grossi – who passed away suddenly on October 16, 2015.

Dr. Grossi was born in Villalago, Italy and moved to Calgary at the age of two. After obtaining BSc, MA and PhD degrees in Psychology, Dr. Grossi served as a prominent psychologist in Calgary for more than 25 years. His research interests lay in clinical and forensic psychology and Dr. Grossi taught these subjects for over 15 years at St. Mary’s University, where he was a much admired and respected adjunct assistant professor.

Dr. Grossi is survived by his three children and his wife Shannon to whom he was married for 27 years.

At St. Mary’s, we feel grateful to have benefitted from Dr. Grossi’s contributions of time, talent, knowledge, and passion for teaching. One of his longtime colleagues, Dr. Michael Duggan, remembers him as a “good and gentle person who brought compassion to the world”. Dr. Grossi will be lovingly remembered by the faculty, staff, and students at St. Mary’s, who all had the privilege of working with and learning from him.

St. Mary’s University will be establishing a scholarship in his memory and those wishing to make a memorial tribute in his honour may do so by visiting this page.
