70 Travel and Reunions

Susan and Greg Istre in Dallas hosted a mini-reunion on Sept. 9 with Mike McCoy. Joining were Bill Hellams, who drove from Oklahoma City, Dave Jones, Jim Farley, Mike Viracola ’84, and Dick Singsank ’74. Mike has for many decades led Mike McCoy Ministries, speaking to 150,000 US Catholic schoolchildren. His message of faith, hope, and encouragement inspires students to reckon with their own lives and be aware of the support their schools and families provide. Mike has identified over 400 students who were contemplating suicide and has worked with their counselors to effect prevention. Geri and John Murtagh left the comfort of Boca Raton in May for two river cruises, first on the lower Danube, then a shorter trip on Portugal’s Douro. They recommend both, especially immediately after the spring rains. Pat and I hosted our children, spouses, and grandchildren (26 in all) in Ireland in July for our 50th-anniversary celebration. Highlights included stays in a 16th-century castle (with electricity and running water) in Castletownroche, County Cork, and a large farmhouse in Castlemaine, County Kerry. Killarney’s mayor and owner of the Failte Hotel coached Pat in pouring a Guinness. Pat and I then drove to County Monaghan to visit relatives and to Northern Ireland. Paul Gill has added another fascinating story to his blog, nd1970.blogspot.com. The 40th post, “The Making of Ara’s Knights,” details Ray Serafin’s co-authorship with Frank Pomarico ’74 of warm insights into Coach Parseghian’s fabulous leadership skills. Ray, a sports journalist for The Scholastic, switched to “hard news” after college and later to speechwriting. Among his major employers was Sergio Marchionne, CEO of Fiat. He and Frank collaborated over several years to complete their marvelous time in 2015, published by Triumph, which also published Bo’s Warriors, a tribute to Michigan’s Bo Schembechler, an assistant to Ara at Northwestern. Gerry DiNardo wrote the introduction and Regis Philbin ’53 wrote the foreword. Larry Kickham died June 9. After his accounting MA at Northeastern U in Boston, he became professor of accounting at Saginaw Valley State U for 47 years, serving as chair for 24. The House Family Awardee for Teacher Impact in 1997, Larry is survived by his wife Lisa Meyer, daughters Laura and Molly, and five siblings. His brother Ed ’68 helped introduce us to the 1968 mock convention and candidacy of Sen. Mark Hatfield. Larry himself convinced us of the talents of Saginaw’s Question Mark and the Mysterians who recorded 96 Tears. Steve Hurd ‘73MA, ‘77PhD died July 22 at home in Lake James NC. The second of nine children, he met Carol Kowalski at Mardi Gras in New Orleans They married in 1973 and had three sons. Carol died of cancer in 1999. Steve practiced psychology first in Greeley and then Grand Junction CO, where he was executive director of Marillac Clinic. In 2007, he married Julianne Lee and moved in 2013 to Lake James NC. Steve led another patient-centered integrated primary care delivery system at Good Samaritan Clinic, Morganton NC. Julie, three children, eight siblings, and 14 grandchildren survive. Joe Becker, who disappeared May 28, 1972, without a trace off the California coast in a P-3 Orion after departing Moffett AFB with seven others, was honored by Navy ROTC last spring. His sister Janey Bennett, classmates Pete Bruderle, Kathy and Bill Hughes, Mike Egart, and friend Jenny attended. All-American jazz drummer, owner of 8,000 books, past congressional aide Mike Kendall, Indiana senator from 1978 to ’82, and unsuccessful 1982 candidate for US Senate, specialized in civil rights, employment, and environmental law in Indianapolis.

70JD They Took the Train to Work

This column is being submitted for printing in early autumn and I am just going to assume that we were finally able to gather on campus the last weekend of October to celebrate our twice-postponed 50th Class Reunion. I know you join me in thanking Joe Leahy and both Joyce and Tom Sopko for all of their time and effort in planning and organizing the same. Over the years, our class has been most fortunate to have Joyce and Tom on the ground in the ND area ensuring that all our reunions have gone smoothly from start to finish. A thank you also goes out to Tammye Radke Rester ’92JD, the Law School’s alumni program manager, for her assistance in helping us to coordinate the event. Those who had planned to attend included Joe Kane, Ken Iverson, Jim Hardgrove, Rich Blumberg, Terry O’Connor, Mike Kelleher, Justin Tedrowe, Maurice FitzMaurice, Bill Keck, Jamie Cawley, Ted Lee, Jack Van De North, Don Schuering, Dick Slawson, Tom Ebel, Steph DeSalles, Jerry Perry, Joe Leahy, Tom Sopko, and myself. Jack Slimm advised he would be trying a case in late October and thus unable to be present. Likewise, Rich Sullivan was involved in a commercial arbitration matter and did not know if he could make it to South Bend. Sterling Spainhour wrote that he and Bev are well, enjoying time with grandchildren but, regretfully, would not be able to travel to ND for the reunion. Jim Doyle’s plans to attend were unfortunately disrupted by knee surgery. John Tully hoped the reunion would be enjoyable for all. John Klein sent his best wishes to all in The Fantastic ND Law Class of 1970. In other news, Joe Jankowski’s NJ law firm, Wilentz, Goldman & Spitzer, was recently recognized by Law 360 as a regional “powerhouse firm.” The article called attention to a number of high-profile commercial transactions that Joe had handled. Joe says he remains grateful for the legal education he received at ND Law School. JoAnn and Mike Kelleher traveled to Columbus for the ND vs. Ohio State game over Labor Day weekend. Their oldest grandson, Derek, is a senior at OSU. As much as JoAnn and Mike love their grandson, they were nevertheless cheering for ND. Perhaps Mike should cheer louder next year. I want to give a shout-out to Ed Wagner ’72JD who recently retired from his Olean NY law practice. Ed was respected by his peers as an outstanding trial attorney in the rural part of the New York state where I live, known as the Southern Tier. In an earlier column, I mentioned the untimely passing of Len Goslawski in 1993. Larry Borowiecki ’71JD followed up on that reference by noting he and Len worked on school newspapers together while students at De LaSalle HS in Chicago and St. Mary’s College in MN. After law school, both worked in the Windy City and found themselves traveling the rails on the same commuter train each morning chatting about their professional careers, current events, and ND. Larry wanted all to know how much he respected Len and was saddened when Len passed away so many years ago. Congratulations go out to Judy and Joe Leahy who will celebrate 50 years of wedded bliss on Feb. 24. Now that we finally pulled off that 50th reunion (plus two), please continue to drop me a line now and then with updates to be shared in future columns. In closing, I wish all of you a happy and blessed new year. Until next time, stay well. Go Irish. — John K. Plumb; jkplumb37@gmail.com


71 Fall Travels

Hosting the BYU game in Las Vegas provided an opportunity for numerous vacations and reunions. Pangborn-Navarre Street roommates Ed Mattingly, Jim Cavanaugh, and Rick Korth came from Texas, Vince Carr from Hawaii, and Jack Clark from California. Mike Kelly, Chicago, and Gerry Giurato, Jacksonville, joined them at the Mandalay Bay. Mike Corrigan, San Diego, and Chuck Snakard, Dallas, used the event to reconnect. Further east the tennis team from ’71 to ’74 gathered on Kiawah Island for a weekend of activities, as well as a game watch for Cal. Participating in person or via zoom were Greg Murray, Bernie LeSage, Tony Earley, and Jim Faught. Fr. Doug Smith from Corby Hall was a co-host and religious leader for an Alumni Association bus and train trip through parts of Germany and Austria. The highlight was the famous Passion Play at Oberammergau. Fellow travelers included Lois and John Caliolo, Syosset NY, and Mary and Joe Mulhern, Michigan City. Maureen recently joined Bob Bullard, Bluffton SC, in retirement, and to celebrate they were on the road for 2,900 miles. First to campus to join Tom Sinnott and Dickie Johnson for the Marshall game, then back east to upstate NY to revisit numerous haunts where they started out years ago. Tim DiPiero, Charleston WV, was also on campus for the Marshall game, hosting numerous family and friends. A long trip home. Herb Melton, Louisville, continues to toil in the vineyard with Tom James, the custom clothing outfit. He used the Cal game as an opportunity to host a half dozen of his professional colleagues from other offices. Condolences to Mike Morrison on the passing of his mother, Marion, a lifetime member of the Shamrock Club of Columbus OH. Also condolences to Mike Meyers on the passing of his mother, Loretta, who was 102. They lived close to each other in suburban Chicago and often had the opportunity to share a late afternoon Manhattan. Ray Klein checked in with the news that his Farley Hall roommate, Dr. George Rebecca of Killeen TX, passed away in July. George was a native of Pennsauken NJ, went on to Georgetown Medical, had a cardiology fellowship from Harvard, and was a career Army medical officer. Ray is a retired high school math teacher in suburban Chicago and also coached high school football, basketball, and baseball for 30 years. Farley neighbors Mike Bradt and Tim Bresnahan are still nearby, also residing in suburban Chicago. Mike Chrapla, Indianapolis, passed away in September, after a long battle with cancer. He was a native of Indy and alum of Cathedral HS, a finance major and resident of Walsh Hall. Fellow Cathedral and ND classmates Terry Lee and Tom McCalley represented us at the funeral, with Tom giving the eulogy. Condolences to Ellen and their family. After the move from his longtime home in Cincinnati, John Collins has settled down in Kerrville TX. One focus of his volunteer hours is the local Notre Dame Catholic Church, where the grade-school kids start the day by singing the ND Fight Song. Hope Thanksgiving and Christmas were enjoyable and festive. Happy New Year! — John Snider; 830 N. Saint Peter St., South Bend IN 46617-1936; res 571-217-8961; cell 312-860-1779; jlscpa@yahoo.com


71MBA Class Celebrity

Before the Cal game, I tuned into the weekly “Here Come the Irish” pre-game show, and there was our celebrity classmate, Jack Sullivan, representing the Cardinal O’Hara Society. Each person is asked to predict the game score and yards of offense. Jack’s pick: ND 27–10, 350 yards of offense. Final numbers: ND 24–17, 297 yards. Terry Walts made a trip to Chicago for a wedding and drove up to WI to spend an afternoon with Andi and John Vaughan. That night he joined Robbie ’71MA and Jim Fackelman for dinner. Terry continued his travels by flying to Sun Valley ID to visit with Mary Jo and Todd Helmeke. After a few days of hiking and enjoying the scenic mountains, they drove to Las Vegas for the Shamrock Series game against BYU. Terry described the environment at the game as electric. Terry expressed his gratitude for all of the condolences from classmates and also wanted to give an acknowledgment to Mary Jo for being such a warrior. Helena and Tony Strati continue their world travels to catch up on plans delayed by COVID. They were in Scotland in August, visited with Patricia and Rod Spear in Mishawaka, and planned an October visit to India. — Jim Fackelman; 4635 Lakeview Circle, Slinger WI 53086; res 262-644-6245; cell 414-379-0968; jfackelman@alumni.nd.edu

72 Much More on the Reunion

Bob Goyette helped organize the all-class military recognition ceremony at which U.S. Army Colonel (ret.) Greg Cannata delivered remarks in which he stated that, during the Vietnam War era, 44 alumni died in combat (none from our class; the earliest was from ’44) and 30 more died from non-combat incidents. In May 1972, 86 of our classmates were commissioned: one Marine, 18 Navy, 33 Air Force, and 34 Army. All Vietnam-era alumni veterans received a Vietnam-era pin. Bob is working with the NDAA to send pins to all ’72 veterans. John Gocke MD spent some quality time with John McCarthy MD, Matt Ryznar, Tom Kemps, Joe Nally MD, Tom Rodts MD, Steve Mitros MD, Steve McTigue MD, Frank Bontempo MD, Mike Harrington MD, Peter Donofrio MD, Lee Poteracki (whom he has known since second grade), Rich Pfeiffer DDS, and Bill Streeter. He and Peter DelPresto recalled being the only two guys in a class of 45 women in a microbiology class at SMC senior year. During the reunion, I donated to Archives my textbook (a bound volume of chapters, each separately paginated) for general chemistry by Emil T. Hofman ’53MS, ’63PhD (1921–2015). Dave Zabor has retired from teaching. He helps resettle asylum refugees in the Phoenix area. Geoff Sauter just retired. In high school, he was a recreational fixed-wing pilot and, in 2016, obtained a helicopter rating, fulfilling a lifelong fascination with the interaction of rotational dynamics and aerodynamics. When he graduated with his degree in aerospace engineering, the field was suffering a recession, so he reinvented himself as a sales engineer and a manufacturer’s representative in HVAC. He and his wife, a nephrologist, formed a bluegrass gospel band six years ago. He plays a five-string banjo. Jim Finnegan reported that he and his off-campus roommates from senior year could not make the reunion. They traveled the following weekend to Pittsburgh because it was centrally located: Jim (from Westchester), Pete Hoffman (California), Steve Schwab (St. Louis), Bill Harrison (Switzerland), Bob O’Brien (Detroit), Don Morrison (Lynchburg VA), Rick Love (Cumberland MD), John McElligott (NYC), and Rich Fahey (Port Washington NY). Dan Sentz of Pittsburgh joined them. They hadn’t all been together since 1976. Tony Wyner passed on Dec. 7. An Eagle Scout, he came to ND from Masconomet Regional High School, Boxford MA. He played baseball and soccer at ND. He worked in human resources and ran marathons and triathlons. Our condolences to his children, Brett and Alyssa. Joe “Buddy” Cooney, ’75JD, passed on Aug. 17. He came from St. Peter’s Preparatory, Jersey City. Nicknamed “Big Cat,” for his aggressive play, he was on the intramural team of The Ducks, which (after our graduation) won the 1974 Bookstore Basketball Tournament. In 1981, he co-founded the law firm of Widman & Cooney, specializing in medical malpractice defense. In 2016, Joe was diagnosed with multiple myeloma. He retired in 2018 and moved to Estero FL. Our condolences to his wife, Michele, and his children, J.P. ’99 and Meghan ’01. Bruce DuMontier wrote a remembrance of Jerry Dalton Jr. He related that Jerry was deaf due to an infection when he was an infant. He went to a school for the deaf in St. Louis to learn to lip read. He did very well at ND, majoring in art. At ND, he lived with a number of our classmates, including Jeff Miller, Mike Plamondon, Tony Romano, Pat Eggers, and Jim Massey. Let us pray for each other, living and deceased, to the Mother of Holiness. — Jim Thunder; thundergroup@alumni.nd.edu

72JD Reunion Memories

Hopefully, this column is more uplifting than my recent columns announcing the deaths of various classmates. On Sept. 16–17, members of the’72JD class gathered in South Bend for our 50th Law School Reunion. In attendance were Mike Holland, Jim Lechner, Rich Hill, Ed Schmidt, Jim Crowley, John Zipprich, Dick Russell, Larry Meyer, John Arden, Bob Gaughran, Paul Binder, Bob Norton, Denny McNicholas, Joe Canepa, John Schmutz, Terry Kalina, Tom Bodnar, Joe Van Jura, Jim Groves, Gene Silva, Mike Keefer, Bob Barton, Paul Onuska, Pat Herald, Jerry Mackey, John Mezzanotte, and myself—along with several spouses and significant others. On Friday night, the class gathered for cocktails and dinner at Carmela’s Restaurant in downtown South Bend. Several classmates walked away with souvenir caps and coffee cups for correctly answering trivia questions from our days in law school. On Saturday morning, the class gathered for a Mass of Remembrance for departed classmates at the Law School Chapel, followed by the Law School tailgate in a large tent on the quadrangle behind the Law School. Finally, many of us were able to attend the ND-Cal game that afternoon. There was a lot of reminiscing and storytelling, and I think everyone who came thoroughly enjoyed the weekend. A special thanks to Father Gerry Olinger, CSC, ’04JD for being the guest speaker at Friday’s dinner, and also thanks to Tammye Raster ’92JD for all her help to us in organizing the reunion, providing each classmate with a gift bag on Friday night, and arranging a picture of the class at Saturday’s Law School tailgate. I’ll try to circulate the pictures by email to the class list. Finally, thanks to Ed Schmidt, Mike Holland, and Jim Lechner for helping to organize this reunion. Again, I’m always looking for news to report on our class, so don’t be shy—fill us in on what you’ve been doing and where you are on life’s journey. — Chris Schraff; 1881 Marble Cliff Crossing Ct., Columbus OH 43204; 614-227-2097; cschraff@porterwright.com


73 Come to the 50th

Our 50th reunion is just around the corner. Can you believe it? The dates of the reunion are June 1-4, 2023. Class President Jim Hunt and his committee are planning an exciting and unique reunion and I would highly encourage everyone to attend. Just seeing the changes to campus since last year is enough. More information will be forthcoming from the committee and Alumni Association and you can always view our website. We are always looking for volunteers to assist. Please email me and I will put you in contact with President Hunt. I received a lengthy catch-up email from good friend Bill Kaufman, now retired after 45 years of law practice in Minneapolis. Bill and his wife, Missy ’73SMC, celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary recently with a family trip to Hawaii. Bill divides his time between his home in Minnesota and a second home in Henderson NV. Bill was fortunate to do legal work with three of our classmates over his legal career: Chicago attorney David “Bugs” Bergonia, John Hession (practicing in Boston), and Joe Gall residing in Nashua NH. He also consulted with John Gautier (retired from his political consulting business in Washington DC). He recently played in the annual ND golf outing with Chris “Kip” Browne who owns a bank in Wadena MN. Dick Wilson was an absentee this year as he was off fishing in Canada. Great to hear from you, Bill. Don Fischer reports the sad news of the death of Ralph Andreano. Ralph retired about 10 years ago from education administration in NY and was recently residing in Boynton Beach FL. Don himself has been retired since 2016 and devotes his time to not-for-profits and grandchildren. His wife, Nora Barry ’73SMC, is a senior federal district judge in the western district of PA. Speaking of the Keystone State, Jim Bulger’s granddaughter Eva recently won her fourth consecutive WPIAL golf championship. I understand she regularly beats Bullet on the golf course. Thanks to Peter Fee for answering my question in a recent column about whether anyone in our class may have served in the Vietnam war. He points out that the last combat troops left South Vietnam approximately two months before our graduation. Pete reports that one of his former roommates, Tom Mauer, will be with him at the reunion. Thank you to all those classmates who purchased tickets to the CA game. Those persons included Paul McGee, Mike Busick, Dan Balmer, Hope Hoffman, Dan Schultz, Roche Schulfer, David Wisniewski, and Brian Neary. Paul reports that Joe Raynak retired in the Phoenix area after practicing medicine. Mel Larceny is still a full professor at the U of Texas in San Antonio. I am saddened to report the passing of Charles Overturf who recently resided in Castle Rock CO. Playing with the author at the ND Senior golf outing in September were host Lou Ferrello, Jim Roolf, and Mike Busick. I also had the great pleasure of playing with Mike McCurdy at Shady Oaks in Ft. Worth. John Dacey also informs us of the recent passing of Bill Reckling. He was a high school classmate of fellow ’73 classmates Jim Groseta, Tim Flood, Roger Burrell, Dave Apker, and John at Phoenix Brophy Prep in Phoenix. Bill practiced law in AZ. Finally, condolences to the family of Dan Sherry ’72 on the recent unexpected passing of his son Parker ’03 in Austin in October. Parker was a very close friend of my son Kevin ’03 and truly a humble human being. Now that we are almost all retired, there is plenty of time for you to tell me what has been going on in your life for the last 50 years. See you at the 50th! Keep the news coming. — Michael W.

73MBA Yet Awaiting Inputs

To date, I had received no real inputs for this winter quarter Notre Dame Magazine. For this edition, I share with all of you this Irish prayer for our ’73MBA class: May the road rise to meet you, May the wind be always at your back, May the sun shine warm upon your face, The rains fall soft upon your fields. May God hold you in the palm of his hand. May God be with you and bless you; May you see your children’s children. May you be poor in misfortune, rich in blessings. May you know nothing but happiness from this day forward. May the road rise to meet you, May the wind be always at your back, May the warm rays of sun fall upon your home, And may the hand of a friend always be near. May green be the grass you walk on, May blue be the skies above you, May pure be the joys that surround you, May true be the hearts that love you. Remember to save the date for our 50th reunion. I look forward to the responses from all our classmates over the next two years to capture your legacy message in this magazine. Please send me your responses and updated email addresses. If you have not written in some time, please share your legacy stories with us. Look forward to hearing from you soon. You are always welcome to visit us in So Cal. — Thomas Jindra; tajindra@charter.net


73JD Crazy Quarter 

My intent was that I would roll out a preliminary plan for our 50th reunion. However, I did not anticipate the arrival of Hurricane Ian and its impact. Fortunately, our home and most of our immediate community in Fort Myers escaped the worst, but as the president of our condo association, it has been an extremely busy few weeks. I am relearning (or maybe learning for the first time) a lot about a number of law school subjects. I heard from Mike “Goldie” McGoldrick who is interested in helping with the reunion and from Joe Schoellkopf who has a place in Florida not far from us who said that they also escaped serious damage. I am not aware of anyone else who lives in the area. As for the reunion in November, I will be talking to the alumni office to go over the basics, including timing, and to find out if we can send out a blast email. By the time you read this, you will have received such an email; otherwise, I will send one to those for whom I have an email. — Paul Reagan; 16527 Heron Coach Way, Fort Myers FL 33908; cell 847-915-9796; pvreagan@gmail.com


74 Celebrating the New Decade of Life

Although some started celebrating when the 2022 year began, others celebrated their 70th later in the year. Sue and Gary Janko conducted a two-day celebration. It was a mix of ND/SMC classmates and a few spouses from various other classes, yet all enjoyed it. The celebrants included Sue and Dave Casper, Barb McKienan Davis ’74SMC, Annie (Cisle) and Steve Murray, Peggie (McDonough) ’74SMC and Dan Lee, Ann (O’Boyle) ’74SMC and Tom Nash, Mary Kay (Conaty) ’74SMC and Jack Liecht, Liz (Sowoda) ’74SMC and Rob Liner, Debbie (Schwartz) ’74SMC and Glenn Pierre, Judie (Moore) ’74SMC and Rich Green ’77, Sheila and Tom Hansen, and Muffet Foy ’74SMC. Weather was great for golf at Conway Farms, where Gary Potempa made a cameo, plus a pool party at the Jankos’ and lunch at Annie Cisle’s. We had a wine-pairing dinner at Gary’s new Forester Hotel after an in-depth review of 1970–74 memories. The festivities ended with a heartfelt toast and a great performance by a superb solo performer (unnamed) singing “Here Come the Irish of Notre Dame.” A good time was had by all. Chris (Hawk) Stevens has been busy working the celebration nights in Fort Lauderdale, Naples, Sarasota, and the Emerald Coast—with four more upcoming events to assist. He’s helping recruit for 12 teams and has thus far met with more than 300 prospects and their families. He received two commitments for men’s hoops for the class of 2023. Good job, Chris, glad you are keeping busy! I received a beautiful letter from William Voller Jr., a fellow classmate who has written a book titled Prostate Cancer and How It Changed Me, which has been published and is readily available. The book is a short read and has truly helped many who have gone through similar struggles with prostate cancer. William mentioned his classmates from Fenwick High School, many of whom became Domers. He lovingly mentions his wife, Cory, who has been his rock through his ordeal, and reflects on his closest friends on campus, Rick Esposto and Mark Fredette. William, like so many, has downsized yet sends out his regards to Brian Neary, Tony Polcari, Denny Ryan, Mike Pohlman, Joe Horne, and Roy Germano. We all look forward to our 50th reunion and we are more than blessed to be able to attend. Lastly, I know you’re all going through a little withdrawal with no mention this time of Pog Mo Thon. And as an added note, our traveling class president, Jerry Samaniego along with his wife Suzanne traveling to Barcelona, Tarragona, Madrid, Avila, Segovia, Salamanca, Toledo, Cordova Granda, and Sevilla, then off to cities in Portugal—four weeks of sheer pleasure! And lo and behold, as stated by Jerry’s dad, there is a town 30 minutes north of Burgos in Spain called Samaniego and it’s a beautiful wine country. No surprise there. Cheers my dear classmates, and write. — Dede Lohle Simon; 440 N. Wabash Ave., Chicago; dedersimon@gmail.com


74MBA Remembering Mark

On a sad note, Betty Gallagher informed me of the recent passing of Mark Souder. Mark passed away in September at the age of 72 after a nine-month battle with pancreatic cancer. Mark attended IPFW before attending ND. He represented Northeast Indiana in the US House of Representatives from 1995 to 2010. Unfortunately, that is all of the information that I have. Hopefully, I will be able to provide additional information concerning Mark for my next article. Our prayers and thoughts are with the Souder family. On the lighter side, after the wedding of our oldest grandchild in September, Helen and I spent a little time in Florida in mid-September with our daughter and her family. We rented a house near Duval Street in Key West for four days. If you have never been there, it is a very friendly atmosphere with a warm and sunny climate, beautiful ocean views, and the hustle and bustle of Duval Street full of bars, restaurants, shops, and many unusual sights and “characters” to pass the time. After Key West, we drove over to Fort Myers Beach for another four days of bright sunshine, warm temperatures, and great sunset views over the ocean. Unfortunately, about a week after we returned to Michigan, Hurricane Ian wreaked havoc on that beautiful beachside community and much of the state. It is hard to imagine the pleasant weather and good times we enjoyed in Fort Myers Beach juxtaposed (yes, I did use that word correctly, naysayers) to the devastation and suffering that we all witnessed in the news footage. I know that several of our classmates live in parts of Florida either full-time or part-time. Hopefully, all of you survived the chaos with little or no effect on your families or your property. Our hearts and prayers are with all of those families in Florida as they seek to rebuild their lives, their homes, and their businesses. That is all of the news for now. As always, I would like to hear from you. All it takes is an email or phone call to let me know how and what you are doing. I hope this column finds everyone healthy and happy. — Jack Burnett; 19248 Glen Eagles Drive, Livonia MI 48152; 734-464-3458; jburnet1@sbcglobal.net


74JD Author Jerry

Noel Augustyn shared that Fr. Jerry Bednar’s latest book is titled Mercy and the Rule of Law. Some of the commentaries are, “This is a brilliant book, reflective of the author’s training in law and systematic theology as well as teaching for three decades in a major seminary, . . . pastoral theology at its finest.” Congratulations to Noel and his wife, Ann, on the addition of James Stephen to the ranks of their four grandchildren.

75 Way to Go (HOF), Dan!

Dan Hesse of Arizona was inducted into the Wireless Hall of Fame at a banquet in Washington DC on Oct. 20, hosted by the Wireless History Foundation. After graduation, Dan earned advanced degrees from Cornell U and MIT. He served as CEO of Sprint from 2007 to 2014. He is now involved with board and charity work. Several years ago, he married Denise (in the Log Chapel at ND) and their two sons, Ryan Hesse ’17 and Evan Hesse ’21. Linda and Norm Bower attended the wedding of John Malone in San Francisco in September. John is the son of Jack Malone of Columbus OH, and the brother of Maggie Soracoe ’06 and Mary Kate Martin ’08, both of Chicago. Also attending were classmates Kathy Osberger of Chicago and Jon Makielski of Edwardsburg MI. Classmate John Grizzard shares updates from a recent triennial gathering in Carmel CA of the members of the “storied” Farley Grizkotyun group: Tom McGinty, a competitive ping pong player with a bad habit of throwing his paddle at opponents, became John McEnroe’s tennis coach, with predictable results. He recently hit his head while running with the bulls and woke up to find he had moved to Spring Lake NJ. He still has bad dreams that the Molemen of Farley are chasing him. After 20 years, Frank (Boone’s Farm) Ryan gave up trying to convince the Bank of America to donate all their profits to charity, and now is trying to arrange a reunion of Tommy James and the Shondells (“the greatest band ever”). John “Mahatma” Kojis (Bay City Rollers ’82) moved to Florida, where he briefly managed the career of Vanilla Ice. Now in Washington, he runs an all-species chiropractic practice. Regarding doing adjustments on cattle, he states, “They’re actually quite appreciative, but that Bigfoot guy never says thanks!” Frank Barrett, PhD, of Monterey CA, writes about the passing of classmate Joe Melehan of San Jose, following a year-long struggle with leukemia. Joe watched the ND–Ohio State game with his wife Celeste and son Chris in early September but passed away on Sept. 5. He is also survived by a daughter, Julia, and six grandchildren. Joe and classmates Tim Negro and Harry Van Bavel held an annual golf outing honoring classmate Greg Hunkler. Let’s pray for our departed classmate, John Wilpert, Wrightstown NJ, who passed away on May 26. The avid Yankees fan is survived by his wife, Jayne, and four children. Also, remember Dan Makielski of Rochester NY, who passed in February. He is survived by wife Carolyn, three children, and two grandchildren. Please continue to send me your news. Thanks! — Norm Bower; 3946 Fernwood Ave., Davenport IA 52807; 563-349-0469; normbower@mchsi.com

Fifty years ago, we were lowly 1Ls when we joined the other law students in Haggar Hall; the out-of-the-way structure would be our home during the expansion and renewal of what was then our 43-year-old law building. In the Report of the Dean (1972–73), Thomas Shaffer ’61JD described us this way: “Our student body comes from 42 states, from 150 different colleges and universities; it includes accountants, ministers, farmers, entrepreneurs, veterans, teachers, scientists, husbands and fathers, wives and mothers, and officials of government.” As to our class in particular, the dean famously remarked, “There is reason to believe that the Class of 1975 is the most intellectually able law class in Notre Dame history.” Still true today, I suspect. Michele (Salem) Jordan and her husband, Robert, relocated from Italy to Spain, trading Prosecco for Rioja. They left Italy the day before the second lockdown and initially spent time in Portugal and Switzerland before settling in Spain. They live on the Costa del Sol in the very south of the country, basically across from Morocco. A few countries away, the summer months found Kathy and Ken Klatt cruising the Danube River. Former Dean Nell Jessup Newton, an honorary member of our class, recently completed service as interim dean of the U of Miami School of Law and is now functioning in the same capacity at Wake Forest; prior to her tenure at NDLS, she was the law dean at the U of Connecticut and the U of Denver. Charisse Lillie, the wife of Tom McGill, retired from Comcast not long ago. Prior to Comcast, she was a litigation partner at Ballard Spahr Andrews & Ingersoll in Philadelphia. Recently, the firm dedicated a conference room in her name to honor her extraordinary career in public service, academia, private practice, and corporate leadership. We lost Joe Cooney and Tom Boyer last summer. Joe had battled multiple myeloma for several years and died peacefully at his home in Estero FL surrounded by family. He was a Jersey guy, a proud family man, and an excellent attorney. In the words of Andy Napolitano, Joe was filled with “Catholicism, generosity, and modesty.” To us, he was the “Big Cat,” the nickname conferred by fellow Ducks. Our sympathies to Michele and the children (Meghan Cooney ’01 and J.P. Cooney ’99). Tom Boyer met Susan DePonio during his undergraduate years at du Lac, later marrying after our first year at NDLS. He joined Beer, Boltz, and Bennia in Troy MI after graduation, and retired from the Kemp Klein Law Firm (successor in name) in 2021. Tom battled a number of illnesses in his final years. He was an endearing friend with an infectious smile and easy manner. Please remember Susan and their children and grandchildren in your prayers. Tom Swartz, the husband of Jeanne Jourdan, also passed away last summer. Beginning in 1965, Tom embarked on a teaching career at the University that stretched for nearly a half-century. Mary Sommer and others fondly remember the hospitality he and Jeanne extended at their home at our last reunion; it was a gorgeous day and Tom was a terrific host to a gathering that included David Link ’58, ’61JD. It was great catching up with Brennan Farrell last summer and meeting with Louis Nanni ’84 and Kate Mueller ’01, ’04JD to assess the state of the Peter A.R. Lardy endowment. While healthy and growing, the fund would greatly benefit from donations in the coming years while our class meanders deeper into its sunset years. Please consider an annual contribution or legacy gift. — Frederick Giel; fggiel@gmail.com


76 Camaraderie Across the Country

It’s that time of year when the weather in NW Indiana alternates between frigid windy days and the last gasps of Indian summer. This fall, one constant has been the warmth of enduring Class of ’76 friendships. This fall, we gathered to celebrate and commiserate. Maryanne Ries Rogers, Augie Grace, and Bob Quakenbush attended their NDSA board meeting and stayed for the (forgettable) Marshall game. Our first regional event, the Shamrock Series game in Las Vegas, drew 29 classmates, including Dan Jarvie and Beverly Cesen Winterscheid. Receptions, service projects, Mass, and the game attracted alumni from across the country. A top-25 win was icing on the cake! I joined our classmates who left hot Vegas and traveled to campus for our Stanford mini-reunion, including Steve Klug, Debi Dell, Pat Burke, Frank Fransioli, Jim Rashid, and Paul Hakel. Sarah and Mark Herr were scheduled to join us but contracted COVID and had to stay home in Milwaukee. After retiring as senior partner with Plunkett Raysich Architects in 2020, Mark volunteers on the boards of Nativity Jesuit Academy, St. John Vianney, and Lapham Peak (a Wisconsin state park). A member of its snow-making committee for the cross-country ski trails, he also secured a $1.3 million grant for its new lodge. ’76 classmates bought tickets for the Stanford game, and a dynamic group of 45 made the class picture. Debi kicked off the weekend with the second of three bookstore signings for the recently published Objects in the Rearview Mirror: A Social History of Coeducation under the Dome. Receiving autographed copies were hockey teammates Gerry Hayden and Pat Novitzki. Gerry and his wife Marti traveled from Nashville TN to attend. Pat, from Granger IN, had a busy fall including fishing in Canada, hurricane Ian cleanup in Florida, and a 10-day Holy Land pilgrimage. Sam Difiglio drove from Chicago just for an autograph! George McLaughlin and his 9-year-old son Jimmy came from Denver for a weekend filled with iconic ND experiences. Jimmy starred in our first Facebook Live video of the weekend during Friday night’s dinner at President Debi’s home. During Saturday’s Memorial Butterfly Release for deceased classmates, Frank Fransioli led us in an Irish whiskey toast at our pollinator garden, reminding us of its origin in response to Pope Francis’ Laudato si’ stating “concern for the natural world . . . is an integral part of the Church teaching on social justice.” The pre-game tailgate featured a generous spread of food, comfortable seating, and our first-ever “Makers Mart” featuring the work of classmates Joe Sinnott, Nancy Brenner Sinnott, Tom Paulius, Christie Sever, and others. Ron Skrabacz (of MMQB fame) and Mark Nishan agonized over Sweet Caroline in the game’s fourth-quarter debacle. Lynda and Pat Sarb celebrated their 48th anniversary during our Mass at the Log Chapel with Father David Kashangaki, presiding. In his homily, he reminded us: We see God in others, celebrating community in His presence. Indeed we did! Kathy Andersen Hoppner and Peter Hoppner, married 45 years and electrical engineering alumni, traveled from Orlando for their first-ever reunion. They are returning for the UNLV game where Kathy will receive her Monogram for basketball. Our condolences to the families of John Brannon, Gabe Zarnoti, John Dulac, and Al Rutherford. John Dulac had a lifelong career in the railroad industry and is remembered as innovative, analytical, and creative. Al worked as a trader and municipal bonds salesman whose family—wife Debbie, four sons, and six grandchildren—was his priority. Gil Johnson reported on Gabe’s passing from Mexico where Gil has established a 501(c)3 dog rescue and sanctuary. — Shelley Muller Simon; 5972 S.

77JD Class Loses Joan Spurney Caplan

Marivonne Basten shared the sad news of the passing of Joan Spurney Caplan on July 22. Joan graduated from Cal State Fullerton and opened a health food cafe called Rutabegorz, which is still open today. Joan and her husband, Morton Caplan, shared many adventures, including sailing around Central America and the Caribbean and flying in their twin-engine airplane around the US and Mexico. Joan’s law career culminated as a child services attorney in Tucson where she and her husband raised their children, Samantha and Asher. They moved to Gulfport MS in 2013 after a shipwreck off the coast. In Gulfport, Joan became active in the League of Women Voters. On May 26, 1972, my brother Joe Becker ’70 was a student pilot on a P-3 Orion, flying a training mission off the coast of California. Bill Hughes ’70 and Bill Carter ’70 were waiting for the plane to land so they could spend time with Joe over the Memorial Day weekend. The plane disappeared, and Joe and seven other men were lost. Fifty years later, to the day, Joe was honored with a plaque presented by his NROTC classmates during a memorial service at Pasquerilla Hall. Capt. E. Lance Thompson led the memorial, and Pete Bruderle ’70, Kathy and Bill Hughes ’70, and Mike Egart ’70 represented the class. One classmate tracked down our family members and we were overwhelmed by the gesture and valued the opportunity to meet with people who knew Joe well and wanted to make sure there would be a permanent reminder of his service and sacrifice at the NROTC building. During the memorial service, Bill and Pete shared classmates’ memories, as well as information about Navy planes and training. The service was preceded by a beautiful Mass celebrated by Fr. Brian Ching, CSC, ’07, ’12GR at the Log Cabin. A luncheon, provided by Bill and Kathy and served by the NROTC students, gave those gathered an opportunity to reminisce. While Kathie DeMetz was back in town for her belated 50th high school reunion, we enjoyed lunch at Rohr’s on campus. Kathie’s daughter Carrie is now a principal at a Catholic grade school in Cleveland, and, in addition to his work in global finance and teaching, her son Marc is co-founder and CEO of a new premium sandwich shop called Breadless in the Detroit area. Both Gina Wilkinson and I are winding down our practices. My bucket list includes visiting every national park, so I need to get on the road. — Janey Bennett; 50850 Tarrington Way, Granger IN 46530; 574-298-9251; bus 574-243-4100; jbennett@maylorber.com


78 Our 45th Reunion Happens in June!

Greetings fellow members of “the class with class!” I trust you enjoyed autumn and another Irish football season! Now it’s time for the ND cagers to make a run for the tournament! Jane and Mike Kinsella visited with Nace Mullen in Stone Harbor NJ in July. Also in July, Nace hosted his annual reunion at his bayside villa. Attending was Jeff Carpenter, Don “Dancing Bear” Smail, Jim “Souls” Coyne, Jim “Boobie” Clarke, PJ Stapleton, Mary White Packer, Rick Gabbinelli, Steve “Bones” Conover, Rich Riley, and Greg “Sweets” Switaj. With the group in spirit was Vicki Lopez, who was concentrating on her bid for a state representative seat in Miami. Vicki won the primary! Don Smail continued his imitation of a traveling salesman during the fall season. Places he was seen include Rhode Island, California, New York, Indiana, and Las Vegas for the BYU game. Nace Mullen did some traveling as well. He was in Charlotte NC for a family wedding, where he squeezed in a visit to the NASCAR Hall of Fame with his son Nace. He also was in Dubai for a triathlon. Jim Fredian let me know that since early April 2020 he has been hosting a Zoom happy hour every other Friday for his Stanford posse. When it started and they all thought COVID would only last a couple of months (oops), he thought it would be a fun way to connect and also play around with this “new” Zoom program everyone was using during lockdown. In September, Jim and a group of 14 had a “Male Bonding Weekend” getaway in Park City UT. They have done previous trips like this to Vail and Jackson Hole. This time, they rented a 10-bedroom house that was walking distance from downtown Park City. They had guys from 11 different states on the trip so the house was perfect for a lot of hanging out and catching up. On the trip were Will Allmendinger, Ramiro Barrera, Steve Barrett, Marty Best, Roger Blanken, Tom Coogan, Glenn Karlberg, Jim McFadden, Dan Munson, and John Strauss. Paul Coppola met former football coach Gerry Faust for morning Mass and breakfast in Akron OH in July. Paul also attended his 50th reunion (one year late) of my grade school, Christ the King School in Snyder NY. There were 56 students in his graduating class. Three of them attended Notre Dame and are part of the class of ’78: Paul, Fr. Mark Illig (rest in peace), and Trish Brennan. Fr. Mark was in the Holy Cross Seminary and took classes with us. He decided to become a priest of the Diocese of Buffalo. On Oct. 29, Jim Coyne, John Delaney, and Nace Mullen took part in the Philadelphia Alumni Club’s annual Phighting Irish 5k run and walk. The festival featured local food trucks, music, games, and Halloween fun! The club’s UND Celebration followed. Steve “Bones” Conover was at the Stanford game, hobnobbing with players from our 1977 championship team. Jim Leonard has joined the board of directors of the St. Louis Zoo. Jim Clarke played golf with Tom Humen in Maryland. Celeste Volz Ford presented the Legends Trophy in the winning locker room after the Stanford game. Unfortunately, it was the Stanford locker room. Celeste holds a Master of Science degree in aerospace engineering from Stanford in 1980. Please keep Greg Switaj in your thoughts and prayers as he recovers from knee surgery. Hard to believe, but our 45th reunion happens in June! Please make every effort to attend and participate in a magical weekend! I have not missed one, and they keep getting better! If you have never attended, make this your first! I guarantee you will not be disappointed. An update on our Class of 1978 scholarship, as we honor the memory of Jimmy Martin: We want to provide future generations with the same opportunity we were all so very lucky to experience. The fund’s overarching principles are anonymity—all gifts will be confidential as to source and amount, and we do not intend to cannibalize any existing donation or gifts to the University—and max participation. Please remember in your prayers the family of Chuck Colbert, who died suddenly in July. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed rest in peace, amen! — Jim “Souls” Coyne; 1801 Butler Pike, Apt. 20, Conshohocken PA 19428; 267-847-8808; jcoyne@cohs.com

78JD New Books

Please send news, memories, plans, and adventures. For myself, I will just say that I am now in my 41st year of full-time law teaching and retirement is not in sight. I recently attended comparative law conferences in Portugal and Paraguay, and plan to teach the law of art and antiquities in Austria this summer. I also published the seventh edition of my torts casebook series and signed contracts with West Academic Publishing to write two new books, one on ethics in government and the other on attorney professional responsibility. Working with students is still great fun. Vincent R. Johnson; 210-431-2131; vjohnson@stmarytx.edu


79 Global Influence

They also have supported the opening of a Washington office for the Keough School. Tom is on the school’s advisory council. Molly and Tom, who live in Hilton Head Island SC, married in 1980 and have three sons, one of whom is in ND’s class of 2012. Mary Ann (Moore) Topping, who lives outside Chicago, is on ND’s Senior Alumni Board. Stan Bernat, of Cleveland, retired and volunteers with the Alzheimer’s Association. Jane and Jerry Perez’s daughter Natalie ’14 and Terry Howard ’13 married Aug. 13 in Harwich Port on Cape Cod. Jerry’s friends and hallmates dating back to 1975, Jerry Castellini, Bob Spittler, Terry Corrigan, Al Brunett, J.P. McGuire, and Dave Kleer, joined the celebration. Remember JD Ballas and his family in your prayers. Angela (Jemsek) ’79SMC and JD’s son Daniel James died unexpectedly on Oct. 10 at age 30. Angela and JD live in Yorba Linda and JD, who was the city engineer and public works director in nearby Industry, has been with WKE, a civil engineering firm, since 2016. In addition to Daniel, they have two daughters and a son. Let me know what you are up to. — Barbara A. Langhenry; res 216-651-8962; cell 216-509-8962; breclw@aol.com
