Dr. Roddy V. Amenta passed away on Saturday, July 28, 2012 following a long illness. Roddy was a fixture of the geology program for nearly four decades. He joined the faculty at JMU in 1974 and retired as Professor Emeritus in 2011. We all will miss Roddy’s unique sense of humor, his quick comebacks, and his propensity for assigning appropriate nick names to students and colleagues.
