91 News from Our President

Robert Pasin, our student body president, heads Radio Flyer Inc., the business founded by his grandfather in 1917. Rob is the author of the national bestseller book, Radio Flyer: 100 Years of America’s Little Red Wagon. This beautifully designed and illustrated keepsake book pays homage to an American icon as it celebrates its first centennial anniversary and embarks on its next 100 years. Packed with 250 illustrations, stories, and original drawings from the Radio Flyer Inc. archives, the book chronicles the history of this classic brand. You can find the book at Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Amazon, IndieBound and RadioFlyer.com. The book has been featured on national and local media including CNBC On the MoneyWGN Chicago, and USA Today. Dillonites Jeff Matzen and Peter Bottini have formed Fresh Water Ventures, an equity fund that provides transition capital to mature, rural businesses in the Midwest. Based on conversations started at a recent ND reunion, the collaboration leans on Jeff’s experience with the Grow Michigan Fund and Pete’s financial markets and operational experience. Several ND classmates have invested in the fund. We are happy to report that Christina (Curtin) Knight, Dawn (Galbraith) Peredo, Jennifer Rudolph, Marni (Bozer) Anbar and Vibha Monteiro got together for the first time in 16 years in January 2018 at Vibha’s house in Austin TX. Marni shared, “we are not leaving Austin until we write this and submit it. We are heart-broken by our loss to Clemson, but it least it wasn’t to ’Bama and we beat USC in their house, so it’s not all bad.” Vibha has been working for Dell for 20 years and is in Dell’s storage division. To keep her busy, she has husband Martin Spears, twins Alex and Alisha, 12, and Ryan, 9. Christina is in Tulsa and working as a non-profit controller. Her sons Jeffrey and Timothy are 20 and 18. Jennifer got her law degree and is “in transition” in Cleveland. Air Force Col. Dawn Peredo retired from active duty in 2016 and is in Tacoma with New York Times crossword puzzle creator Jim Peredo ’92 and their kids, Marissa, 21, Dominic, 19, and Anna, 10. She is working in developmental behavioral pediatrics for the Army. Marni is living in Tempe with her husband, Arizona State U professor Ariel Anbar, and kids Nathaniel, 18, and Naomi, 15. She is putting her master’s in math education to use by starting a school-based company dedicated to informal STEM education. She and Anita Verdugo-Tarrango ’93, also living in Tempe, have become “Domer-Devils” as they are professionally obligated to root for ND and ASU. OK Class of ’91, let’s hear from the rest of you. Turning 50 was celebrated by Mary Ann (Cenedella) Oswald, Holly (Sunderhaus) Fesler, Stacy Farrar, Katie (O’Connell) Marsh, Jen Bonvechio, Michelle (Richards) Braun, Erin (Rice) Keanna, Jen (Long) LaFlair, Elizabeth (Crisp) King and Liz (Reilly) Masciopinto, who traveled to the Dominican Republic in January. The jury is out about whether they had any fun at all. Erin (Rice) Keanna is working as pediatrician outside of New Haven CT, working in the same practice as Mike “Marv” Sheehan who lives with his wife Maura (Long) Sheehan and kids in the next town. Gina Mahony writes that she celebrated her 50th birthday in Paris. She owns her own consulting and lobbying firm in Washington DC, with a focus on federal legislation and policy. She frequently sees classmates Rachel Lovejoy and Bridget Walsh. On Facebook? Join our Class of 1991 page. We have 643 members. — Suzi (Criqui) Mueller; cell 917-886-8176; suzi@cbglobalsearch.com


91MBA All about Bill

I have done it. I have made it through our class directory on my.nd.edu. I have clicked on every name and reached out to each one of you. The success rate for hearing back was pretty good. If you did not get a personal email from me asking for an update about your life, it probably is because you do not have an email or have an old email in your profile. Please update your profile so we stay connected. For those who got back to me, thanks. Since, I did not hear from anyone for this issue, you get to hear all about the Lynch family. So, what is the husband, Bill, up to? Well in 2018, he played golf about 40 times and his handicap 12. He is tagging along with me to Chicago for a conference in June and hopes to play with Joe Nolan, but will miss Kevin McJoynt, as he will be on vacation. When not golfing with clients, his friends or me (only a few nine holes a year), he is watching his daughter, Megan, climb. We refer to Megan as a professional climber now, because she has two small sponsors and makes some money in competitions. Bill loves to follow Megan all over the country to watch her in comps. In February, he was in Oregon for the US Nationals, stayed at Eddie Lang’s place (thanks) and, in April went to Tennessee for Collegiate Nationals, where she climbed for Sacred Heart U. Bill also enjoys playing catch with his son, 15, who was on the high school team this spring. Bill does not join his eldest daughter in her sport, as she is a Spartan fanatic, and Bill is smart enough to know he can’t conquer those obstacles. Bill has been at PNC Bank for 28 years and manages the commercial real estate lending business in Washington DC. Bill and I were blessed to spend Easter with Regina and John Berardino. They are as entertaining as they were in our days at the Linebacker and Cheers & Beers. Please share your news or you will have another issue of the Lynch happenings. — Patty (Spiekermann) Lynch; pattylynch05@gmail.com

93 Author, Author

I’m jealous. Bryan Reardon is living my dream as a published author of three novels. (My dream also includes my as-yet unwritten books being optioned for movies.) I thoroughly enjoyed reading his suspense novel, Finding Jake, and recommend that you pick up a copy or download it to your Kindle. The paperback for Bryan’s The Real Michael Swann came out May 28 and his third novel, The Perfect Plan, was released June 18. Prior to becoming a fulltime writer, Bryan worked for the State of Delaware for 10 years, starting in the Office of the Governor. My husband, Jim, and I had a great time catching up with Bryan and his wife, Michelle, over dinner in West Chester this year. Indiana Gov. Holcomb appointed Dave Certo to the Uniform Law Commission, which writes model state laws including the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC). Their conference was in Anchorage this summer, so Dave and his wife were lucky to travel to Alaska. On Aug. 1, Dave will mark 12 years as a county judge, for which he feels deeply grateful, especially to work every Friday with veterans in crisis. Dave shared that his Boy Scout troop was headed to Mount Rushmore, Iowa and the Badlands in June, so he planned to break out Field of Dreams, North by Northwest, and Dances with Wolves for the kids prior to the trip. (Hey Dave, how about mixing in a history book or two?) For myself, it’s been a different kind of year. My company eliminated my job in March, so I have been thoroughly enjoying a work sabbatical. (That sounds nicer than ISP). You would think an ISP qualifies as bad news, but it’s all good. I’m grateful for the longevity of my career, plus my former employer had allowed me to move back east to work from Delaware, so I’ve been lucky. I am appreciating the fruits of my labor, quite literally, with a generous severance package. Fortunately, 19 years counts for something. My husband and I spent a week in Costa Rica in January, followed by a Caribbean cruise in March, and then I had a girls’ trip to Atlantis in early May. If you notice a pattern here, yes, I love traveling, apparently to beaches, so I am excited to focus my career search on an entirely different industry, travel and leisure. On a much more somber note, Jack Hay shared news of a sad but also celebratory gathering for his good friend Rob Letherman, who passed away unexpectedly last October after a short illness. Rob grew up in and continued to live in Elkhart IN, and his dream had been to attend Notre Dame. He transferred from Holy Cross and chose to live in Carroll Hall. He was a perfect fit for The Vermin, who nicknamed him Brother, which is what he called the guys whenever greeting them. He was a football trainer and friends with many of the players from our era. He had a huge heart and gave generously and unconditionally to those around him. Rob tirelessly organized a large tailgater for every home game. Any Vermin, including former rectors, could look for Rob’s iconic inflatable Duff Beer can, flying high to signal his location, knowing they would find specially prepared food, drinks, good music, great people and solid friends. Many Vermin from multiple classes traveled to South Bend to honor Rob's memory and support his family, including his brother Pete ’95. — Anne Marie (Krauza) Yuhas; 1636 Eldridge Drive, West Chester PA 19380; mobile 623-606-7000; yuhas93@gmail.com 


93MBA Remember Senior Week?

I had a fun conversation with my son, who is a senior at ND. We were talking this morning about Senior Week and I showed him the photo album I made after our graduation from ND. Although it was called MBA Grad Week for us instead of Senior Week, we had most of the same activities that he will be enjoy. I thought it might be fun to jog your memories and remind you what we were doing in May 1993. To start off, Sara Leibscher and I had just won the Women’s Bookstore Tournament. My photos show a lot of you watching and cheering for our team. Our next activity, the official start of MBA Grad Week, was on May 9. We had a pig roast. Whoever wrote the itinerary for this week was super funny. I cannot put in print all the words that he/she used to describe the time of the event or what we would be doing. The next day we met at Senior Bar during the afternoon, and later that evening, at the same location, we had a murder mystery event. Rachelle Carrier planned it. We headed to Chicago the next day for a Cubs game and then on to Navy Pier for a booze cruise. I can honestly say the boat photos are the funniest I have. My captions are even better. Our next big event was on Thursday, May 13, at the ND Golf Course. We had a golf tournament. Based on the photos, this was not a serious golf tournament. I have many groups posing in silly ways on various parts of the golf course. Friday night we had a cocktail party at the Snite Museum of Art. Saturday was our graduation day with a lot of blue skies and great photos. Carol Leong’s parents brought leis from Hawaii. I cannot believe it has been 26 years. I realize I have not heard from many of you since graduation. If you are reading this and you have not reached out to me since May 1993, please send me a quick email. I am only allowed to print what you send to me. I cannot include what other people have sent to me about you. We sure did have a great time together at Notre Dame. Maybe one day soon we can get a large group of us to head to ND for a football game. Even if you do not have a ticket for the game, it is a fun day. My family goes up for the day and usually heads home once the game starts. We live in Indianapolis. I hope you have a blessed summer full of great memories. Go Irish. — Tricia Hug Schorr; cell 317-987-5000; thugschorr@yahoo.com


93JD Mission Trip

We have a few updates from classmates. Deborah Bennett Berecz of Berecz & Associates, PLC recently returned from a mission trip to Peru with the Starkey Hearing Foundation providing hearing care to children and adults. This is Deb’s second mission trip with Starkey, an organization established to focus on hearing loss awareness, education, protection and treatment. Tom Dixon was recently seen multi-tasking in South Bend. He was swimming and analyzing a client matter at the same time. Lynne Pregenzer Hook ran a marathon, all at one time. That is nothing short of amazing, as I am exhausted after driving 26 miles. I can’t imagine running that far. That’s it people. I need to hear from you so I can share your excitement and successes with our classmates. If you don’t report your successes, I will have to tell you more about the set of Morgan Silver Dollars that I recently purchased, which is quite interesting. Peace and blessings to you all. As my mom always says to me: you pray for me and I’ll pray for thee. — Jamie O’Brien; jamesobrienesq@yahoo.com


94 By the Time You Read This

…we’ll have celebrated our 25th reunion. I know, I used that line last time, but I like it. Anyway, reunion was amazing, wasn’t it? Alas, the summer 2019 Class Notes were due in April, so I’ll have updates from reunion in the fall edition of Class Notes. Before then, we have some wonderful news about our classmates, including wedding bells. Kathleen J. Campbell was married at Marble House in Newport RI overlooking the Atlantic, on Sept. 15 to Michael Harvey, a native of Perth, Australia. They had a perfect day to celebrate and were joined by Amy (Stemwedel) O’Kane and her husband Barney, Wendy (VanGinhoven) and Dan Moore, and Karen (Grondin) and Brendan Maher. Kathleen and Mike live in Far Hills NJ where she works in the theater and restores vintage and Victorian homes. Congratulations to Amy (Csizmar) Dalal, a full professor of computer science at Carleton College, who has been named the new director of STEM at Carleton, a position she’ll start this summer. Amy lives in Minnesota with her husband Michel and her children Yasmin and Xander. And kudos to Jonathan Lienhard who joined the law firm of Holtzman Vogel as a partner, practicing in the areas of commercial litigation, First Amendment litigation, and white-collar litigation. He and his wife, Colette, are busy raising their three sons in Fauquier County VA. Tim Fischer has been busy. He served as CEO of Vac-Tron Equipment for the past three years and helped orchestrate a successful sale of the business to their main distributor, Vermeer Corporation. Tim lives north of Orlando with his two teenage children. And last, but not least, I had the good fortune to visit with Chris Putt on his family trip to New York City. Thanks to his wife Erin who stayed with their children so Chris and I could catch up. Keep the updates coming. — Joe Poe; 64 Hillside Ave., Huntington NY 11743; mobile 917-488-8570; bus 516-739-5100; ndclass1994@yahoo.com

Hon. Margaret Ryan wrote from DC, “Michael (Collins) and I remain in DC but recently bought a house near Notre Dame. I helped a bit with the Intensive Trial Advocacy Class in January and taught a seminar on Constitutional Issues in the Military Justice System over spring break. We should be settled in time to host something during the 25th reunion activities.” Tanya Molitor Zubryd reports, “My family and I live in Muskegon MI. We have two children.

96JD Honors, Moves, Running with the Pitch

Art Cody, who works extensively with veterans in the criminal justice system, especially those on death row, received the David S. Michaels Award from the New York Bar State Association. The award recognizes courageous efforts in promoting integrity, justice and fairness in the criminal justice system. Art also got to be the “vet honoree of the Fighting Irish salute” at the Wisconsin-ND hockey game at the Compton Family Ice Arena this season. He even met Coach Jackson and everything. Mike Leary was appointed inspector general of the US Government Publishing Office after 13 years with the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. Mike and his younger daughter, Connell, also made an impromptu visit to ND in November to see the National Champion Women's Basketball team open the season against Harvard, and hopefully spark a seed of interest. Mike and Bill Webber got together in DC with Dave Nozick in February while Dave was in town from Indiana. Mike reported that “Dave needed to indulge his penchant for trendy Japanese restaurants. Apparently, they are not a strong point of the Hammond area.” Dan Tychonievich recently joined the law firm of Krieg Devault. Dan works out of the South Bend/Mishawaka office and is a member of the firm's business, acquisitions and securities practice group. He concentrates his practice in intellectual property while partnering with his clients to build business-focused patent and trademark portfolios. He represents clients in the preparation and prosecution of US and international patent and trademark applications and counsels and assists in intellectual property litigation. Yours truly, Chris Spataro, is coaching the Northern Indiana Cardinals 14u baseball team this year. I took my coaching talents to the travel world after my little league team last year went 0-17 with 12 mercy rule defeats. I hope that more than half the team will understand the infield fly rule this year, and that all the players will know to run on a 3-2, 2-out pitch when on first base or another forced base. If you have news to share, or if you want information on minireunion football tickets for this fall, please contact me. — Chris Spataro; 57027 Wedgefield Court, Elkhart IN 46516; 574-596-2417; chrisjspataro@gmail.com

Jay Evans was elected to partnership at Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis LLP, in the firm’s Pittsburgh office. Jay is a litigator and member of the firm’s practice groups for product liability, nonprofit organizations, and criminal defense and internal investigations. Jay serves as counsel for clients, particularly automotive, truck and heavy equipment companies, facing significant litigation matters in the realm of product liability and toxic torts.

Tom’s firm is focused on school law (serving as general counsel to several New Jersey charter schools), business matters and employment law. Tom and his wife Lisa live in Glen Ridge NJ with their three children. Tom was kind enough to host Joe Poe ’94 and me recently for an evening at the New York Athletic Club, of which he is a member. I was also fortunate to recently visit Laura and Mark Cawley and their two daughters at their charming home in Wayne PA. Mark is senior corporate counsel at Farmers Insurance Group Inc., which he joined in 2011. By all accounts, Tom Roland remains pleasant. Have news to share? Drop me a line and fill me in. Also, pay a visit to the NDLS Class of 1998 Facebook page for news and fun. — Chris Putt; res 574-514-3703; crputt@gmail.com
