The following message was posted Facebook page of Edgewood College's The Black Box Theatre:

We are so very sorry to share news of the death of one of our undergraduate students, John Brendan Primm. Brendan, age 22, died on Wednesday, July 24, 2013, as the result of a bicycle accident. We offer our deepest sympathy to his parents, Patricia Hallinan and John Primm. Brendan’s mother, Pat, is Director of Assessment, Graduate Advising and Curriculum/Instructor in the School of Business.

Brendan was preparing for his final year at the College where as a Theatre Arts major, he was a fully immersed and beloved member of the Theatre “family,” a strong student leader, mentor and friend who was elected to the theatre assembly planning committee. Last summer he and another student worker in the department spearheaded the move to the new theatre. Brendan’s face was also very familiar to theatre patrons. He performed in The Arabian Nights, Bye Bye Birdie, The Cor Stories, Antigone, Wait Until Dark, The Improv Show, The Patient, and Comedy of Errors. He stage managed Our Town and directed Boxed In for the most recent Student Directed One Acts, and was a performing member of the theatre improv team, YesAnd. His Theatre family will dearly miss him.

Information about plans for services and a link to his obituary will be posted as they become available.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Brendan’s family and friends both here and in the larger community. Those in the college community who are most deeply affected by this loss are urged to seek support for yourself or others. Resources available include Personal Counseling Services at 663-2281; Dominican Life at 663-3451 or 663-3233, Health Center at 663-8334, and Dean of Students at 663-2212.

Please join me in sending our sympathy and hopes for healing to Brendan’s family, friends and all who knew him.

Jeanne Leep, on behalf of the Theatre Arts Department
