Father George V. Coyne, S.J.

from 2 to 3:30 p.m., both in the Le Moyne Jesuit Community Chapel.
A Mass of Christian Burial will take place on Monday, Feb. 17 at 4 p.m. in the Panasci Family

Father George V. Coyne, S.J., who directed the Vatican Observatory for nearly 30 years, from
1978 to 2006, died on Tuesday, Feb. 11 at Upstate University Hospital in Syracuse, NY, where he was
being treated for cancer. He was 87 years old.
Father Coyne had been appointed director of the Vatican Observatory in 1978 at the age of 45 -
one of the few appointments made during the brief pontificate of John Paul I. He served there until the
age of 73, the longest term as director of the Vatican Observatory. During this mandate, Father Coyne
oversaw the modernization of Specola's role in the world of science, welcoming young Jesuit astronomers
from all over the world to his staff, including Africa, Asia, and South America. With the establishment in
1986 of the biennial summer school of astronomy and astrophysics of the Vatican Observatory, Father
Coyne has promoted the education of a generation of young astronomers, coming mainly from developing
countries.
Father Coyne promoted the dialogue between science and theology at the highest level. In close
contact with John Paul II, in the 1990s he organized a series of conferences on the Action of God in the
Universe at the headquarters of the Vatican Observatory in Castel Gandolfo, Italy, in collaboration with
the Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences of Berkeley, CA. He published numerous texts on the
subject, in particular a book with Alessandro Omizzolo, Wayfarers in the Cosmos: The Human Quest for
Meaning.
He was born on Jan. 19, 1933 in Baltimore, MD, the third of nine children, to Frank and
Elizabeth (Brune) Coyne. In 1951, he entered the Jesuit novitiate in Wernersville, PA. During his first
year of studying Greek and Latin literature, he had a Jesuit priest as professor who, besides having a
doctorate in classical languages, also had a master's degree in mathematics and a deep knowledge of
astronomy. The priest noted George's great interest in astronomy and encouraged him to deepen it.
George received a bachelor's degree in mathematics and a degree in philosophy from Fordham University
in 1958, and obtained a Ph.D. in astronomy from Georgetown University in 1962, and finally a degree in
sacred theology from Woodstock College in 1965, the year of his ordination. His main field of research
was the study of the polarimetry of various astronomical objects.
He left the post of director of the Vatican Observatory in August 2006, but continued to be part
of the Vatican Observatory staff and served as president of the Vatican Observatory Foundation until
2011. That same year, after being recruited by several institutions, he chose to go to Le Moyne College in
Syracuse, NY, because of the College’s strong commitment to attracting first generation students. He was
appointed the McDevitt Chair of Religious Philosophy at Le Moyne and also taught astronomy courses.
Over the last 40 years he was honored with 11 honorary doctorates from institutions around the
world. He was awarded the Mendel Medal by Villanova University in September 2008 and the George
Van Biesbroeck Prize by the American Astronomical Society in 2010.
He is survived by two brothers, Thomas Coyne of Nottingham, MD, and Francis R. Coyne of
Baltimore, MD. George was predeceased by his parents, sisters Marion Plott, Elizabeth Coyne, Patricia
Coyne, Mary Margaret (Peggy) Hock and brothers James Coyne and Joseph Coyne. He also leaves
behind many nieces, nephews and friends.
There will be a wake on Sunday, February 16 from 2 to 4 p.m. and on Monday, February 17
from 2 to 3:30 p.m., both in the Le Moyne Jesuit Community Chapel.
A Mass of Christian Burial will take place on Monday, Feb. 17 at 4 p.m. in the Panasci Family
Chapel on the Le Moyne campus.
Burial will be at the Jesuit Cemetery in Wernersville, PA.

NY 13214-9911 or online donations may be made at lemoye.edu/give. Please note that the gift is in

Why choose Whelan Bros. & Hulchanski?

...Because Our Family is Your Family...
Family Owned vs. Corporate Owned

    When choosing a funeral home, you may want to research whether or not the business is owned by a local family or run by a large corporation.
There is a difference.
    During the past twenty years, publicly-owned corporations have been consolidating the funeral business similarly to what has occurred in other businesses. Recently, this trend has reversed because the corporate-owned funeral homes have simply not measured up to the service that families receive from family-owned funeral homes.
    For generations funeral services have been provided by local families who have deep roots in their community. When dealing with such an important event in your families life, turning to a funeral director whom you know and trust can make a world of difference.
      Whelan Bros. & Hulchanski Funeral Home is the best in the business. We will give you the personal attention, outstanding professionalism, and caring that you deserve.  We will be there for you after the funeral is over to provide you the extra support that only generations of service can cultivate.
