Andrew J. Tallon

Poughkeepsie - Professor Andrew J. Tallon, 49, entered Eternal Life on the morning of Friday, November 16, 2018. He died peacefully at home in the arms of his beloved wife, Marie.

Professor Tallon was born on March 12, 1969 in Louvain, Belgium, the son of Andrew F. Tallon and Mary Beth Tallon Vander Vennet. He was educated at Princeton and Columbia Universities, and joined the faculty at Vassar College in the Department of Art in 2007. Andrew was esteemed worldwide as an innovative scholar of French Gothic art and architecture, one who introduced new digital techniques to the analysis and re-creation of the spatial archaeology of medieval buildings. In all his work, he was an inspired and generous educator who brought the past to life in vivid and meaningful ways.

He is survived by his children; Ambrose,12; Augustin,10; Gabriel, 9; and Anatole, 5; and his wife, Marie Tallon-Daudruy. He is also survived by his parents; his sister, Clare, and her husband, Dan, and their children; his brother, Barry; and many other loving family members, devoted friends, former colleagues, and students.

A wake will be held this Tuesday, November 20, from 4:00 to 7:00 pm at Doyle Funeral Home in Poughkeepsie. A Roman Catholic Funeral Mass will be celebrated the following morning at 10:00 am in the Vassar Chapel. Burial rites will be at St. Peter's Cemetery immediately follow the Mass. A reception, at which all are welcome, will take place afterward at Alumnae House.

Donations may be made in Professor Tallon's memory to the restoration of Holy Trinity Church.
