1930s

36 Long Life

 

Many thanks for your notes of condolence on my father’s passing. We continue to be amazed at how many of you enjoyed his reminiscing. A very happy birthday to Joe Newman, who celebrated 105 years on Jan. 13. There was a terrific article about Joe in the Sarasota Herald-Tribune. Back in 1950, Joe and his wife Sophie established South Bend’s Logan Center for adults and children with disabilities. Joe attributes his long life to clean living, staying active and trying to make a difference in the world. I’ve encouraged Joe to send us stories from his time at Notre Dame. Go Irish. — Maureen McGinn; jwn176@aol.com

38 Checking In

 

I have no news to report, but I would love to hear from class members, family or friends who are still reading the notes. Please say hi if you can. — Meg Julian ’03, ’06JD; 11 E. 36th St., No. 603, New York NY 10016; 646-246-5480; megjulian@gmail.com

 

39 Always with Us

 

By my calculations, about 13 members of the class remain. Paul Charles Tully passed away in February 2016 and Dr. William (Bill) Singler Murray passed away in February 2017. Paul served in Europe during WWII as a communications specialist and later ran an insurance agency in New Jersey for many years. I received word that Stewart John Roche ’39JD passed away in April 2017. Per the Alumni Office, these are the living members of the Class of 1939: Louis Joseph Demer, Vincent Edward Dollard, William (Bill) Alfred Donnelly, Robert Ernest Fitzsimmons, Joseph Thomas Godleski, Joseph M. Hilbert, Howard William Hooper, Richard Vincent Huisking, Rev. Rodney Kissinger, John Francis McCarron, James Michael McFarland, Thomas E. Moran and James Joseph Raaf. If you have any updates on these men or any others from the class, you’re welcome to share. — Seth O’Donnell ’04; 603-828-7335; seth.odonnell@gmail.com
