It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Dr. Jorge Arturo Román-Lagunas of Schererville, IN., formerly of Munster. Jorge was born to Carmen Lagunas Gonzalez and Arturo Román Risopatrón in Santiago, Chile on September 12, 1943. A world traveler, internationally recognized literary scholar, and university professor for fifty years, Jorge was politically exiled from Chile and came to the United States in 1974 where he met his loving wife Victoria Ann Román-Lagunas (née Murphy). He truly enjoyed and was passionate about spending time with his family, traveling, reading, writing, and enjoying his evening scotch while conversing with his best friend, Vicki. He is survived by Vicki, his sister Carmen Victoria Román Lagunas, and his four children Juan Pablo (Rachel) Román-Lagunas, Patricia (“Peach”) Román Hass (Doug Hass), Victoria Román Vivanco (Patricio Labra Navarro), Jorge Román Vivanco; and his grandchildren Sebastián Arturo, Nicholas Abraham, Gabriela Sarah, Isabel Victoria, Emma María, Gabriel Francis, Matías, Antonia, Agustina, Emilia, Jorge Ignacio, and Lucas.

We are truly grateful to Dr. Sheldon Lewis for his loving care.

We will celebrate Jorge’s life at the Kish Funeral Home, 10000 Calumet Avenue, Munster, Indiana on Sunday, July 14, 2019 from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m. Father Charles Niblick will officiate the Mass of Christian Burial at 10 a.m. on Monday, July 15, 2019 at St. Maria Goretti Church, 500 Northgate Drive, in Dyer, Indiana.
