50 A Lifetime of Service

John Fallon ’87, emailed to say that his father, Joseph M. Fallon, passed away at age 91 on Dec. 18, 2020. John attached a photo of his dad, who (along with a smile) sported a Kelly green jacket, white carnation, and a blue and green ND tie. John added an anecdote: “Joe loved God, family, Notre Dame and golf. The order of those things sometimes changed depending on the season. He was proud to be on the hamburger squad at ND and even more proud to be one of Leahy’s Lads. Joe cherished his time at the University, where he learned life lessons and made lifelong friends.” In addition to an ND degree in chemical engineering, he later earned a BA in accountancy and MBA. From John: “My dad began his career at Union Carbide as an engineer and quickly rose through the ranks. … He took early retirement from Carbide in 1985 but got restless; he took an executive position at Crompton and Knowles until 1995.” Joe was married to Isabel (Moran) for 50 years until her death in 2004. The couple made their home in Stamford CT. He then moved to Hobe Sound FL, where he spent the rest of his life. Joe remarried and is survived by his wife, Margaret, as well as seven children, 16 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. Colin F. MacDonald Jr., 91, died on June 15 in Westwood MA. Following graduation, he earned his DMD at Tufts in 1954. Colin served in the Navy before beginning a career as a dentist in Quincy, a suburb of Boston. The Boston Globe reported, “Many of his patients became good friends and he will always be remembered for his keen intellect, his love of family, his kindness and his sense of humor.” He is survived by Mae, his wife of 67 years, four children (one predeceased him), eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. John P. Riordan passed away on July 28 at the age of 96. He was a lifelong resident of Brockton MA. John enlisted in the Navy in 1943, serving as a carpenter’s mate with the Seabees in the Pacific. Three brothers and a sister also served during WWII. After the war, he graduated from ND and in 1954 earned a Master of Social Work. John was active in his parish, St. Edward’s (St. Edith Stein), and faithfully supported Catholic charities. He was preceded in death by his wife, Elsie (Perry), and one daughter. He is survived by five children and 10 grandchildren. Frank E. McBride Jr., 93, died on July 30 in Dayton OH. He served in the Army during WWII and after graduation from ND, went on to become president and CEO of Ohio Metal & Manufacturing. The Dayton Daily News reported that he “was past president of Notre Dame Alumni Club of Dayton and recognized as Notre Dame Man of Year in 1957.” Frank’s wife of 61 years, Nancy (Hodapp), passed away in 2018. He is survived by four children, four grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Gene P. McCarney passed on Aug. 23 in Wyomissing PA at 94. Following graduation, he had a 30-year career with the Transcontinental Pipeline. He was a Navy veteran. Gene loved the outdoors; he was a gardener, hunter, climber, hiker (Appalachian Trail after retirement) and naturalist. The Reading Eagle described the passion he had for service: “Gene was president of International Right of Way Association Chapter 9, president of Blue Mountain Eagle Climbing Club, and a 42-year member of the Lions Club. He was president of Green Hills Sportsman Club and a volunteer at Joanna Furnace for the Hay Creek Festivals.” Gene is survived by his wife, Ann (Young), four children, seven grandchildren and six great-grandchildren; he was predeceased by one son. Joseph L. Farrell Jr. passed away on Oct. 8 in Pennsylvania. His wife, Eileen, five children and two grandchildren survive.

51 Celebrating Football Success 

Hi, everybody. What a great football season. I enjoyed every minute of it. The last game against Alabama had a foregone conclusion. We were simply outclassed this time, but who is to say what will happen the next time we meet? I look forward to next season with a new quarterback to lead us to many victories. I want to mention the passing of my close friend Bill Carey. I admired his work as a great debater while we were in school. He was the National Extemporaneous Debate Champion. Bill passed on Oct. 7. He leaves behind Helen, his wife of 66 years, his children William T. Carey III ’77, Joseph Carey and Elizabeth Colston, and many grandchildren. He was loved by all. To end on a happier note, all is well here. Have a great year. Stay well. Stay safe. — Jim Gillis; 3267 Rossmoor Parkway, no. 4, Walnut Creek CA 94595; 925-932-6454; jimjanegillis@aol.com


52 New Secretary

First off, here is something about me, Tony Messina. I got stuck in Cavanaugh Hall after a few days at the Oliver Hotel, which was being used as a junior hall. Worse, my roommate and his friends were chemistry majors and up to their eyebrows in quantitative analysis, whatever that is. So, I only met a few classmates in engineering. My claim to fame is that it took me four semesters to pass the freshman physics class, and two courses in summer school at Northwestern and USC to make up the credits. The first classmates I met at the Oliver were Tom Reyman from Akron, where we moved a year and half later, and Neal Moore from McCook NE. Did you know that Tom was the youngest of 16, plus one by adoption? They would have 50 to 100 family members for Christmas dinner. As I remember, there were two nuns and three or four priests. I was rereading the summer issue of ND Magazine and realized I lied, sort of. We made it to Arizona but after Neal had gone back home to Michigan. We canceled our visit to the WWII Museum. Maybe we will visit in 2022 after the reunion. Also, I mentioned lights out at 11 p.m., but I neglected to mention the room of Charlie Paquette and Bill Osborne on the third floor of Alumni Hall. Somehow, with the aid of an EE major or two, they tapped into the hall light night line, ran the wire through or under the roof and through their window to the door. After 11 p.m., if the door opened, the light would go off in the room. Heavy curtains were over the windows. Tony Russo and I could see the wire from our room in the wing. And it was there for two years. Perhaps Bill will enlighten us as to how it was done. George Heidkamp, our president, sent information that retired Air Force Brig. Gen. Mal Wakin PhD was presented with the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award by Marquis Who’s Who on March 25, 2019. Mal got the award for leadership in the fields of higher education and military. He spent 33 years teaching philosophy at the US Air Force Academy and headed the department for 30 years. He was commissioned in 1953 while studying for his master’s degree. He is the author of many publications and received awards from USC and ND. He is the father of eight children and a daughter spent 10 years in the Air Force. Ed Sullivan sent a note reporting two granddaughters are joining the 12 grandkids who have graduated, one from ND. Also, twin grandsons finished their Army Ranger tours and are starting college. He said Dr. Anthony Fauci went to Regis High School in NYC 10 years after Ed and married a friend’s daughter. John Marhoefen celebrated his 90th by having at least 31 family members at a beachfront property on the Carolina coast. Time was spent with poetry, music, singing and libations. A honeymoon story comes from Jim Reid. He married Sharie in Indianapolis and they went to Clifty State Park and to the restaurant up a steep hill which their 1952 Plymouth couldn’t make. So, remembering the reverse gear had more power, they backed down the hill and then backed up the hill to the restaurant for a great meal. Now, the sad news: Ted Peller passed away Dec. 20. He served in Korea after joining the Air Force, and then spent 34 years with 3M. James Mannion passed away Dec. 3 from COVID. He graduated from St. Louis U Law School and served in the Navy. His law career took him to Falstaff Brewing and partnership in a law firm specializing in labor relations, retiring at 70. Dana Fitzpatrick passed away Dec. 28. He, too, was in the Navy then spent his career with Fitzpatrick and Weller Inc. He served in several lumber organizations. Celebrations of life for all three will be later this year. RIP, gentlemen. — Tony Messina; 8202 Drybank Drive, Huntington Beach CA 92646; tonyandirene@gmail.com 


53 A Harbinger of Age

Seemingly, with each edition of this magazine, this column moves closer and closer to the first page in the Class Notes. Let’s hope we are around to see us on the first page. Andy Adelhardt sent a Christmas card and a Mass Fund contribution. Andy was a Marine EM before enrolling in engineering. This year’s note was encouraging, “We are still here.” Rev. Thomas Smith, CSC, our adoptive class priest, is unable to return to the US because of COVID. He accepted an assignment to a parish in Kenya until travel reopens. In email exchanges, Father Tom assures me that the class is in his prayers and daily Masses, with a tone of appreciation for our support of the Missions. Florida again has provided a refuge from the cold weather for seasonal visitors: Bernie Hester, Ft. Myers; Jim Rogers, Bonita; Art Midili, Bonita; and Jack Dilenschneider, Sarasota. We are in Naples. Lee Tavis has moved from South Bend to the Miami area to be near family. In looking at the Class ZIP code list, there are 35 members who reside full time in Florida. Maybe we should hold our 70th reunion in Florida. Fred Ionata, a full-time Florida resident, sent a note that he received a thrilling call from fellow pre-med Jim Ronan after many years removed from their years at St. Louis U Med School. After retirement from private practice, Jim opened and operates a clinic for the luckless in the DC area. I hear from Bill Santoro from time to time, including a note of well wishes. He would like to hear more from the pre-meds. Dick Casper called, as he does on a whim, to report he is well and still driving, which he said is essential when living on Cape Cod, as he has for several years. Dick is in touch with B-P roommates Jay Curley and Terry Britt. Jay has achieved a form of reprieve in that his assisted living facility allows interactions with his three nearby daughters, which had been denied for an extended period. Terry is in Tucson and getting along better than just OK. Tom Collins, among others, learning that my wife and I had COVID, sent a note of encouragement, which was greatly appreciated. Even a “mild case” is not a great experience nor one to be recommended. Bill Langlois reports that Rev. Ted Hesburgh, CSC ’39, stamps are still available through the post office and its website. Start with USPS/Stamps and type in Hesburgh in the right corner and order 55-cent stamps in the pull-down. The Chicago group is frustrated because of an inability to meet for lunches due to the lockdown. Stan Stasch took the initiative and extended holiday greetings to Bob Berner, Tom Morsch, Ray Smith, Deacon Mike McNulty, Tom Reedy, Marty Wehner and Lou Bourjaily. I’m sure I missed someone. Dick Lorentz, Bob Dyer and Don Rampolla left us to mourn their passing. — Jerry Mulvihill; 51098 Heatherton Court, Granger IN 46530; res 574-287-3460; domerhill@apl.com

Prayers for all are requested as well as for Larry Harrison, Albert Starshak and Frank Martell, who are now in the care of Our Lady. Keep in touch and God Bless. — Tom Magill; 119 Atlantic Road, N.

57 Some of the Greats

Congrats to Jim O’Sullivan who finally retired from the metal manufacturing business that he sold. May he and Sarah enjoy the climate of Southport NC more than the Windy City they left. Steve Peters ’63 wrote about his good friend, Chuck Zuzak, who died Nov. 29. Chuck was a weightlifter on the team of Rev. Bernard Lang, CSC ’26, received numerous awards and was known as “muscles.” He served as Dean of Arts and Sciences at the U of Tennessee at Nashville and went on to serve as Dean of Arts and Sciences and full professor at Slippery Rock U for 21 years, the longest in school history. His wife, Charlotte, preceded him in death. Paul Hornung passed away in November in Louisville KY. He came to ND to play quarterback and Frank Leahy ’31 claimed he would make Paul the greatest college football player in the country. Leahy succeeded, as Paul won the Heisman Trophy in 1956 after a 2-8 season. He switched to halfback in the NFL, where his single-season scoring record of 176 points lasted 46 years. It was broken by LaDainian Tomlinson in a 16-game regular season in 2006, while Paul set his record in 12 games. Joseph A. “Joe” Schrantz died Sept. 1, predeceased by his love, Dorothy. They had eight children. Joe was dropped off at an orphanage at the age of three. After the foster home, Joe entered Boys Town in Omaha. Later, Joe joined the Navy where he met his “sweetie pie.” Saving every penny, Joe was accepted to ND and paid his own tuition of $250 per semester. Joe will be remembered by the great pride he took as he excitedly talked about and demonstrated the 100 push-ups he did every day. Norman E. “Norm” Krauss, a Double Domer (1957 and 1958), died on Nov. 26. He is survived by Patricia, his loving wife of 63 years; seven children, including two Domers; 24 grandchildren, including three Domers; and great-grandchildren.

Gene H. Muhlherr Sr. died Aug. 23 after a short battle with cancer. He was preceded in death by his wife and traveling companion, Josie. They had four children. The couple and their growing family moved often over their 55-year marriage, with Houston as their home base. Gene loved being a geophysicist. Dennis R. “Denny” Hower passed away Oct. 4 following a long struggle with Alzheimer’s disease. Denny was a professor at the U of Minnesota General College. He and his wife, Audrey, permanently resided in Minneapolis but enjoyed their winters in Oceanside. Jerome E. “Jerry” Ruthman died Oct. 1. He is survived by loving wife, Sylvia.

58 Death in the Family

Paul Bourjaily, 83, passed away Feb. 2 in Fontana WI. Formerly of River Forest IL, he was a proud graduate of St. Catherine of Siena, Fenwick High School and Notre Dame. Despite his small stature, he was the starting point guard on his light-weight 1953 high school state basketball championship team. He was an avid golfer and enjoyed playing cards with his cousins. Paul was guaranteed to kill all household plants, set houses on fire, sink your boat and make you laugh. He was the perennial optimist, promising that things would always get better. He is survived by his wife, Barbara (Besserer); children Peter (Anne), Paula (Kurk) Anderson, Deirdre (Terrence) Hancock, Michele (David) Polzer and Barbra Jill (Tom) Smith; and 19 grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by his daughter Alyce. Keep Paul and his family in your prayers. — Arthur L. Roule Jr.; 114 Sagamore Parkway, La Porte IN 46350; alroule@yahoo.com

59 One of a Kind

Mark, we miss you on the airwaves. For 35 years, we could count on interesting, weekly, political commentary by Mark Shields, the lad who came to Notre Dame from Weymouth MA. Congratulations to Mark on his recent semi-retirement from the PBS NewsHour. Mark and Anne continue to reside in Chevy Chase MD. Several groups of students also came to ND from smaller towns in Ohio. Four classmates from Celina OH who were also in high school together, enrolled with us in September 1955: Terry Bernard (d. 8/15/2006), Mike Brady (d. 1/13/2018), Rev. Tom Feltz and Bob Turicchi (d. 11/2020 in Huntington Beach CA). Tom Feltz has been serving as a priest of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles for 35 years. And, in another part of that state, Steubenville OH produced an additional four high school classmates: Knute Cavanaugh MD (a retired orthopedic surgeon in Longmont CO) John Henry (Germantown TN), Tony Popp (who did not continue at ND), and Francis (“Sunny”) Sunseri MD (McMurray PA). Some in our class pursued a career in education at a variety of levels. Tom Brady taught at the U of Oregon for 23 years and at the U of California-Berkeley for more than 15 years. He also did seminars in retirement at U of Arizona and the National U of Ireland in Galway. Dr. Bob Giarrantano is happily retired in Coronado CA. He is a member of the Knights of Columbus and a Eucharistic minister at Mercy Hospital. Norm Schnurr was a professor of mechanical engineering at Vanderbilt U in Nashville from September 1965 until June 1980. We have a unique situation in this issue of the ND Magazine. An essay of Joe Heil is in the “Cross Currents” section. Bunny and Ed Lahey are safely ensconced in the Berkshire Hills. If you come up to visit the nuns in Tyringham MA, give him a call. He stays in touch with Biff Moretti and Will Holmes. After 50 years of a solo law practice, Jim Hilliard is with a Hispanic law firm in Chicago. Ed Ricciuti is writing a lot about insects as a contributing writer for the blog of the Entomological Society of America and has had a few articles for Notre Dame Magazine online. Sadly, one of the 33 deaths of ’59ers in 2020 was that of our class treasurer, Bo Broemmel of Marion IL and Ft. Myers FL on 12/28/2020.
