Robison, Jeff was extremely dedicated to his family, his career in higher education and professional and personal philanthropy. As the second oldest of six children, Jeff showed dedication to hard work at an early age, paying his own tuition Saint Edward's High School in Lakewood, OH., so that he could pursue another great passion there - playing football. After graduating high school, Jeff was accepted to Ohio University in Athens, where he joined the ROTC to pay for school and walked on to the university's football team. Jeff earned a starting position his sophomore year and, ultimately, a full athletic scholarship.

After eight years of soliciting major donations for the University of Florida, Jeff returned to his Alma Mater, Ohio University, as Associate Vice President for Development, where he oversaw the implementation of the University's first major fundraising campaign - raising $132 million in a $100 million campaign. In 1994, Jeff accepted the position of President of the Florida State University Foundation, where during his 11-year tenure he implemented and executed a $630 million fundraising campaign. Before retiring in 2012, Jeff worked as a primary academic fundraiser at several universities, including Case Western Reserve University and St. Thomas University.

Jun 9, 2014 Fellow Alumni, I have been asked to send out the death notice listed below for Brother Thomas Michael Shaughnessy, C.S.C., Class of 1953, to his classmates and the members of the classes of 1954, 1955, and 1956. Please keep Br. Thomas and the Shaughnessy family in your prayers. Brother Thomas Michael Shaughnessy, C.S.C. May 4, 1936 – June 6, 2014 Brother Thomas Michael Shaughnessy, C.S.C., age 78, died on June 6, 2014 at Dujarie House, Holy Cross Village, in Notre Dame, Indiana. He was born in Lakewood, Ohio, the son of John and Coletta (Morgahan) Shaughnessy. He grew up there and attended St. Luke Elementary School and St. Edward High School, where he was a member of its first graduating class in 1953. He attended the University of Notre Dame for a year and transferred to Western Reserve University in 1954 where he studied for two years. He recalled the influence that the Holy Cross Brothers had on him and decided in June 1956 to enter the juniorate program at Watertown, Wisconsin. He began his novitiate training at Rolling Prairie in August 1956 and pronounced his first vows as a Brother of Holy Cross on August 16, 1957. He returned to resume his studies at the University of Notre Dame and graduated in June 1959. Tom taught at Archbishop Hoban High School in Akron for a year and then joined the faculty at Father Gibault School in Terre Haute, IN where he worked for 2 years. In 1962 he did graduate work at the College of Our Lady of the Lake in San Antonio and earned a master’s degree in social work in 1964, which was the foundation for the generous life he would lead in a variety of roles. Over the years he held administrative positions at Gibault School in Terre Haute and St. Charles Boys Home in Milwaukee. He was best known for 30+ years of service and leadership in social work in Terre Haute, Mishawaka, and South Bend, while working with various organizations. He also served a year in social work centers in Stockton, California and in Bellingham, Washington. In each of his positions, he helped make changes to augment programs in community service, family abuse treatment, marriage preparation, and counseling. His most satisfying effort was to help establish the Holy Cross Counseling Services in South Bend. His generous life of serving those in need also included his Holy Cross Community. Tom served as secretary of the Midwest Provincial Council from 1982-1985. He was the efficient and caring director of Dujarie House from 1991-1999. Then was the business manager for the residents of Schubert Villa for two years. In 2000, became the superior of the community at Columba Hall for six years where he instituted a number of programs to enhance the spirit and atmosphere. He provided great care and sensitivity to the residents and visitors of the ‘Community House.’ He was noted for looking out for the welfare and physical health of the elderly or disabled Brothers. At that time he served on the province committee for the development of the senior retirement community which became the major complex now known as Holy Cross Village at Notre Dame. His leadership skills often came into play as he was the Chairman of the Board of Holy Cross Village for 6+ years and involved with the multi-million dollar development of the Village. Because of his life of service to others, he must have had a large and generous heart. This was seen in his contacts with his immediate and extended Shaughnessy family who corresponded, visited, and treasured Uncle/Cousin Tom. Many enjoyed his ability to get Notre Dame football tickets. That generous heart was especially noted in his close ties with his St. Edward High classmates. He helped organize reunions for them to come to Dujarie House to visit and reminisce with Brothers who taught them, such as Br John William Donoghue and Br Eduardo Michalik. A week ago, Tom was planning to attend the funeral of a classmate, James Roddy, who passed away in Cleveland. He was looking forward to seeing old friends. But that generous heart of his has been weakening from attacks. Recently, Thomas commented to one Brother about his health telling him,"I’m ready to go!” On Tuesday the 3rd, he experienced another heart attack and went to the hospital. Family members came to visit. The doctors told him he had a low probability of success with bypass surgery. Tom decided to receive hospice care at Dujarie House. He was brought there by ambulance last Friday and passed away just as he was being helped from the gurney to his bed. May he now rest in eternal peace. Visitation will be held on Saturday, June 14th, 2014 at St. Joseph Chapel from 9:30am to 11:00am of Holy Cross College at Notre Dame. The Mass of Resurrection will then follow at 11:00am with interment afterward in St. Joseph’s Cemetery of the Village. Kaniewski Funeral Home is handling the arrangements. Memorial contributions, in honor of Brother Thomas Michael Shaughnessy, C.S.C., to support the mission and ministries of the Brothers may be sent to: Brothers of Holy Cross, Office of Development, P.O. Box 460, Notre Dame, IN 46556.

Tony attended St. Edward High School and in 1979 he moved to Las Vegas and began his career in the casino industry. Due to a combination of great intelligences, infectious charisma and larger than life personality Tony's achievements were anything but ordinary. In 1990 Tony patented a concept for Texas Holdem Lottery ticket. He began working for Hartford based MDI where he licensed popular brands like Wheel of Fortune and Harley Davidson. In 1999 he was introduced to the late Ray Charles which began a lasting friendship and business relationship, including creating a slot machine that could be played by the blind. After Ray's passing in 2004 Tony served as a pallbearer. At that time Tony formed the Ray Charles Marketing Group and licensed his music and likeness for the next seven years. Tony also served as executive producer for the documentary "Ray Charles America". In 2012 Tony began working to bring events to the country's largest indoor convention center, The IX Center. He, most recently, spearheaded the Pro Foot Ball Hall of Fame FanFest. If life were measured in experiences rather than years, Tony out lived us all; slow dancing with Beyonce at the Grammys, riding in a Mardi Gras float with Harry Connick Jr., producing commercials with Terry Bradshaw, Jerry Rice, Warren Moon, Barry Sanders and Joe Namath and traveling enough to reach the million mile club are just a handful of examples of what life looks like when you really live every single day. He was truly a force and deeply loved by all who knew him. Despite his many professional accomplishments, if you were to ask Tony what he is most proud of the answer would be his three daughters. He was a wonderful father who instilled in his children a strong work ethic, unwavering loyalty to friends and family and a relentless passion for life. It is likely because of this passion all three Gumina girls knew how to decant wine, eat an oyster and parlay a football bet at a very early age. They adored him.

Bill loved growing up in NYC, exploring and working in the Empire State Building as a page in his teens. As a child, the Julliard School of Music and Columbia University campuses as well as the grounds surrounding the Cathedral of St John the Divine were his playground. He graduated from Corpus Christi Elementary School and attended Manhattan Prep High School for two years before the family moved to Cleveland, Ohio where he completed high school at St Edward and went on to graduate from John Carroll University with a BSS degree. He completed MA work in Educational Administration at the College of William & Mary in Virginia. A member of the ROTC Pershing Rifles, Bill was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant entering the US Army in June 1960. He began military service in the 3rd Armored Cavalry at Fort Meade, Maryland, and deployed with that unit to Kaiserslautern, Germany during the Berlin Wall build-up. Several years later, he transferred to the Transportation Corps serving in a variety of assignments including Vietnam. Following his return, he taught management classes at the Army Transportation School at Ft Eustis, VA for five years. After a tour in Korea, he took a three-year assignment in Izmir, Turkey as the Military Port Operations Officer following which he went on to Pirmasens, Germany to take on the duties of Community Services Officer managing a three-year project to renovate military billets. During his career, he was awarded the Bronze Star, the Vietnamese government’s Cross of Gallantry, the Distinguished Service Medal, the Meritorious Service Medal with oak leaf cluster, the Army Commendation Medal with three oak leaf clusters, and two Presidential Unit Citations for units he led. During his seventeen year career in the US Army, Bill rose to the rank of Major during a time when the military was reducing forces. On leaving the military, the family moved to Seattle, Washington, where he was employed by the Housing Authority of King County as a Recreation Director in White Center. In this position, he was a Liaison with community social service agencies in the service of underprivileged youth and families for seven years. He continued in government service as a clerk with the US Postal Service. Upon completing the Labor Relations Program at Evergreen State College, he became an American Postal Workers Union Shop Steward and member of the Washington State APWU Board of Directors. As a Steward and Labor Contract Negotiator, he served employees in small offices throughout western Washington, and taught Shop Steward and Contract Negotiation classes for the WA State APWU. For this work he was awarded their highest recognition in 2004: The Willis Cadman Award. His efforts to seek justice and respect for others enabled him to be the Hands of God working among people he encountered in his world. He possessed a strong love and appreciation of the arts – opera, theatre and music, especially – which gave him great joy. He believed it important that the arts be a large part of family life. Music had always been an important part of his life. He began singing in his church / school choir while in elementary school, and was a member of choirs and glee clubs throughout his life including singing with a group at Mt St Vincent. He also loved dancing – he and his wife were avid ballroom dance partners. He listened to recorded music constantly. His hobbies included reading, woodworking, home renovation, kayaking, hunting, fishing, camping, travelling, photography, gardening, collecting travel books, and viewing award-winning movies. He instructed the family in the fine points of all his interests and taught all his children the fine art of home maintenance, repair, and renovation with patience and encouragement. His motto was “No Rain – No Rainbows”. Bill’s patience, acceptance, faith, hope and trust in a Loving God strengthened him to accept the rigors of Parkinson’s Disease with a positive “Thumbs Up” attitude daily. He found joy in each moment in time and relaxed with prayer and music. He succumbed to the side effects of Parkinson’s Disease and will always live in the hearts of family and those he met along the way.

Aug 7, 2013 Fellow Alumni, Listed below is the death notice for Mary Ann Boland, mother of Gerard Boland, Class of 1972. Please keep the Boland family in your prayers. MARY ANN BOLAND (nee Pesta), March 20, 1939 - July 24, 2013, died peacefully in her home, surrounded by her children and grandchildren. She struggled for two years with ovarian cancer before finally succumbing to the illness. Mary Ann was a vibrant and courageous woman who lived life to the fullest. Born in Youngstown, OH., Mary Ann was the second child and only daughter of Paul and Mary Pesta, who had recently emigrated to the United States from the former Czechoslovakia. When Mary Ann was three, the family moved to Cleveland. She graduated from John Adams High School in 1957 and attended Fenn College before starting work as a secretary at B.F. Goodrich Chemical Company. In 1961, Mary Ann met and married Harry E. Boland, who worked in sales at B.F. Goodrich. Together they raised seven children and travelled the world as Harry's job took the family to live in Australia (1972-1978), the Netherlands (1978-1982) and Hong Kong (1982-1986). Mary Ann was always civic-minded, and started a lifelong commitment to community service when she became a "candy striper" at St. Luke's Hospital at the age of fourteen. Wherever where she lived, Mary Ann served her community in a multitude of ways. In 1986, Harry and Mary Ann settled in Bath Township, OH. Mary Ann began working part-time for Leadership Akron, and pursued a number of volunteer activities. She was a docent at the Akron Art Museum, served as both committee chairman and secretary for the Akron chapter of the Arthritis Foundation Advisory Board, was 2nd Vice President for the Akron Area Council of Churches board, and tutored students through Project: LEARN of Summit County for many years. In 1989, Mary Ann was promoted to Assistant Director of Leadership Akron, and ultimately became Executive Director in 1994. She threw herself into that role with tremendous gusto, and expanded the program through creativity, grant writing, and fundraising. In addition, Mary Ann continued volunteering for such organizations as the Akron Symphony, the Akron City Club and Heart to Heart Communications. In recognition of her years of steadfast service in the community, she was awarded an Honorary Alumni Award by The University of Akron in 2005. Mary Ann attempted to retire in 2005 but it just didn't take. She went on to work at Welty Building Corporation, Heart to Heart Communications, and St. Bernard Parish before finally deciding to relax in 2010. Of all the roles Mary Ann filled throughout the years, none satisfied her more than being a grandmother. Mary Ann leaves behind seventeen grandchildren, now ranging in age from 42 to 9, and she enjoyed spoiling them all to the best of her ability. In doing so, she created lasting and wonderful memories with all of them. She loved hosting holiday dinners and family gatherings, and never tired of the sound of grandchildren running through her house. Mary Ann was an avid reader, and most enjoyed motivational and self-help books. She was always up-to-date on current events, and loved reading the newspaper each day with her coffee and scones. She was a knowledgeable gardener who delighted in the beauty of her flowers and enjoyed growing fresh herbs. She was forever trying out new recipes and sharing them with her family. She loved to travel and was thrilled that she had been able to see so much of the world. Throughout her illness, Mary Ann commented often that she had "a great life," and she was grateful for her many blessings. Sadly, Mary Ann lost her husband Harry last September, one month shy of their 51st wedding anniversary. She was also preceded in death by her parents and her brother Joseph (d. 1969); her daughter Jo Ann (d. 1994) and son Harry Edward, Jr. (d. 1999). She is survived by her children, Gerard (Deidre) Boland of Bathurst, Australia; Margaret O'Toole (Jack) of Hudson, Ohio; Jane Boland of Sorrento, Australia, Paul (Angela) Boland of Wadsworth, Ohio; and Kate (Mike) Dietry of Waunakee, Wisconsin. Mary Ann's beloved grandchildren are: Courtney Boland, Elaine (Sean) McFadden and Greg Boland; Laura and Dan Boland; Sean (Lisa) Lovass and Sam Lovass; Miranda, Sebastian¸ Grace, Charlotte, Dominic, Bridget, and Matthias Boland; as well as Brandt, Parker and Evan Dietry. The family would like to thank the staff of the Visiting Nurse Service and the Justin T. Rogers Hospice Care Center for their care and compassion during Mary Ann's illness. VISITATION WILL BE FROM 4-7 P.M. ON MONDAY, JULY 29 AT THE BILLOW FAIRLAWN CHAPEL, 85 NORTH MILLER ROAD. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, July 30 at St. Vincent Catholic Church, 164 West Market Street in Akron.

May 31, 2013 Fellow Alumni, I was informed today of the passing of Ruth Ann Bennett, mother of Robert Bennett, Class of 1978, and grandmother of John Bennett, Class of 2006 and Ryan Bennett, Class of 2012. Listed below is the death notice. Please keep the Bennett family in your prayers. RUTH ANN BENNETT (nee Dooley) died Tuesday, May 21, 2013 in her Cleveland home where she had been under hospice care since suffering a stroke May 6. Ruth Ann had been in failing health for the past several months as the trauma caused by a brain aneurysm she suffered more than a decade ago finally began to win a battle that she had successfully overcome for years. She celebrated her 76th birthday on May 5 with her husband of 54 years, Robert T. Bennett, Chairman of the Ohio Republican Party, her children, grandchildren and twin great grandsons Mason and Riley. Wakes will held in Cleveland and Columbus with a Funeral Mass to be held at Holy Cross Church in Columbus where Ruth Ann attended Mass as a student at St. Joseph Academy. Ruth Ann was born in Marceline, Missouri, but moved throughout the World War II years with her family as required by her father's work on the Manhattan Project. After the War, the family moved to Columbus where she was later to meet her husband Bob. The couple moved to a home in Strongsville, a Cleveland suburb, in January of 1961 following Bob's graduation from the Ohio State University. She quickly made Cleveland home, where she raised the couple's two children, Robert T. Bennett, Jr. and Rose Marie Bennett-Yonek and eventually kept her loving eye and steady hand on the lives of her grandchildren, Marine Second Lt. John Bennett, granddaughter Jaclyn Bennett and grandson Ryan Bennett. Ruth Ann also had a successful career as a Realtor for Lawrence Realtors in Cleveland, but outside her family and her dog Maddie, her considerable affection and determination was channeled into raising money for UH Rainbow & Babies Hospital Circle of Friends Program. She was a founder of the program and became well known for reminding contributors that it was all "for the babies." Ruth Ann (nee Dooley) was proud of her elevated position in her family where she ranked as the oldest of 63 grandchildren and played an active role in organizing family reunions. Much to her delight, the reunions were held surrounding her family's Missouri farmlands every five years. She also remained close to her sisters Ce Ce Matyac and her husband Daniel, Dottie Sue Rice and husband Steven and brother Joseph Dooley and his wife Barbara. Her sisters and brother all reside in the Columbus area. Ruth Ann is also survived by her daughter Rose's husband John and son Bobby's companion Becky Vardian. Her father, Alonzo G. Dooley and mother, Loretta Quinn, as well as a younger brother, Creigh Dooley, precede Ruth Ann in death. The family will receive friends in Cleveland from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday May 28 at the BERRY & MARTEN'S Funeral Home, 26691 Detroit Rd., Westlake, OH (1 mile West of Columbia Rd.) and in Columbus Wednesday May 29 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the EGAN-RYAN Funeral Home, 403 E.

Jan 15, 2013 Fellow Alumni, Listed below is the death notice for Joseph Lang, Class of 1955, grandfather of William Rouse, Class of 2013. Please keep the Lang family in your prayers. Joseph (Joe) Lang of Fairview Park and North Olmsted died January 10, 2013. He grew up in Lakewood where his parents were founding parishioners of St. James Church; he attended St. James school, was an altar server, and sang in the Boys Choir. He attended high school at St. Edward and graduated in 1955. He put himself through John Carroll University by caddying at Westwood Country Club in the summer and working as a tower operator on the Erie-Lackawanna Railroad, earning both undergraduate and graduate degrees. He began his teaching career at Elyria Catholic in 1960. Although he originally wanted to be a priest, he met and married Marjorie Ford in 1962, and they began their family of 5 children in 1963. In 1963, he joined the social studies department at North Olmsted where he taught geography, Civics, government, American and World History at both the junior high and high school level until his retirement in 1998. During his career, he also served as department chair and summer school principal. His annual reviews, discovered upon his passing, were highlighted with positive comments from students, parents and peers. Oftentimes, when he was out with his family, he would be approached by former students who would stop to say how much they learned from him. On a recent Thanksgiving, he received a call from a former student letting him know what a positive impact he had made on his life. He combined his love of teaching and travel early in his career when he and his wife (a nurse) chaperoned high school students on 2 consecutive summers traveling for 6 weeks through Europe. When his oldest daughter was in high school, the family hosted Carmen Ruano, a foreign exchange student from Guatemala. Carmen later returned to live with the Langs for several years while she studied at Tri-C. Their ties remained strong with Joe and his family attending Carmen’s wedding in Guatemala in 1989. Later, he and his wife hosted Carmen’s daughter, Ana Sofia, and nephews, Javier and Sebastian, for a month while they attended classes at Lakewood Catholic Academy. He was a founding member of the Fairview Park Jaycees and a CubMaster during the years his oldest son was in the Boy Scouts. While his 3 younger children where active in North Olmsted soccer, Joe served as both a coach and President of the North Olmsted Soccer Organization (NOSO). He was also passionate about historic preservation and earned an appointment to the North Olmsted Landmarks Commission. Joe also served on the board of the North Olmsted Credit Union. He was a prolific letter writer, expressing his views on a variety of topics and causes to elected officials. In his retirement, Joe had more opportunities to travel, visiting one son studying abroad in Ecuador, and accompanying another on a business trip to Lithuania. Joe and his wife spent a month in Italy with Mario di Gennaro, a foreign exchange student that lived with his wife’s family during high school. Joe reciprocated their hospitality when Mario and his wife Ana visited the states and he accompanied them to Niagara Falls, New York City and Las Vegas. In the past year, Joe and his wife visited a son in Turkey, toured the Grand Canyon, and celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on a cruise to Alaska. Joe was a self-taught woodworker and handyman, mostly out of necessity maintaining a century home. He generously assisted his children wherever they lived with their own home improvement projects, even loading suitcases full of power tools to fly across country to do so. He was well-known and loved by the friends and neighbors of his children near and far. He instilled a lifelong love of learning in his children who all attended private schools and colleges and pursued advanced degrees despite the modest salaries of a teacher and nurse. They are: Colleen Rouse (Bill) of Lakewood, Michael (Chris) of Clyde Hill, WA, Brian (Kristin) of Little Rock, AR, J. Patrick (Heidi) of Lakewood, and Katie McGregor (Ryan, deceased) of Westlake. He was also a devoted grandfather of 12: Will, Emily and Charlotte Rouse; Ben, Jeremy, and Megan Lang; Jameson, Hayden, and Joseph Lang; Donovan Lang; and Colin and Mason McGregor. He is survived by a sister, Sr. Joan, CSJ. Friends may call at Chambers Funeral Home 29150 Lorain Road on Friday January 18, 2013 from 2-4 and 5-8P.

Jan 9, 2013 Fellow Alumni, Listed below is the death notice for Thomas “Tom” Morrow Willett, Class of 1955. Please keep the Willett family in your prayers. Thomas Morrow Willett (Tom) of Rockport, Texas passed away the morning of December 31, 2012 at the age of 75 in Austin, Texas with complications from a glioblastoma brain tumor. Tom was born Sept. 1, 1937 in Asheville, North Carolina to Velma Morrow and James Roy Willett. He was the youngest of 6 children: Roy, Ruth, Howard, Martha, and Mary. He married Earlene Joan McDaniel in San Antonio, Texas on October 20, 1962. He graduated High School at St. Edward in Cleveland, Ohio in 1955 and attended San Antonio Junior College, San Antonio Texas. In 1956 Tom enlisted in the Marine Corp and served 6 years, 3 years active and 3 years inactive. Tom's occupational history and skills were widely varied from stints at Southwestern Bell Telephone, advertising, manager of Dickies factory in Uvalde, and Personnel Director of the Tower of America's Restaurant in 1968 with Frontier Enterprises which took hold of his future in the food service industry. In or around 1973 with a small group of investors, Tom had his entrepreneurial spirit kindled in establishing the Skipper's Galley Restaurant in Del Rio, Texas. The business was successful, and the group had plans to expand into Eagle Pass, Texas where another restaurant was built. Due to economic conditions in or around 1976 however, this did not come to fruition. Afterwards, Tom and his family joined Earlene's sister and brother-in-law in Washington State and purchased and operated Driftwood Acres Resort in the Wenatchee National Forest near Cle Elum for approximately 1-1/2 years after which Tom, Earlene and their children returned to Texas. In or around 1978, Tom began employment with Whataburger Restaurants, Corpus Christi, Texas as an area supervisor and shortly thereafter left Operations and went into Whataburger's construction department as Director of Construction where he remained for approximately 23 years and retired around 2002. Tom cultivated and nurtured many meaningful relationships within the circle of his ultimate career. He took interest in those he worked with and endeavored to see them succeed. He created a sense of family among close friends. He was regarded as innovative and knowledgeable in his field. Tom enjoyed the Outdoors. He taught his children to fish and hunt. Hunting, camping and boating with friends and family are treasured times. He was fascinated by the substance of the earthly world, and always endeavored to build from that substance, be it a "coon box" for river camping, restoration of his father-in-law's redwood boat, the Rockport "cabin", or a 200-seat restaurant. He enjoyed building things, and whatever his interest, he found something to build in order to compliment it. In Tom's retirement he was an avid golfer and served on some occasions on the board of the Live Oak Country Club in Rockport, Texas and even found that opportunity to improve the grounds and water system. He played golf with his children and inspired them to find the value in that activity. Tom is survived by his wife, Earlene Willett; his son Mark Earl and his wife Maryanne residing in Austin, Texas; his daughter Pamela Beth, also residing in Austin, Texas; Grandson, Alex; and numerous nieces and nephews. A funeral Mass will take place on Saturday, January 12, 2013 at St. Thomas More Catholic Church located at 10205 Ranch Road 620 North, Austin, TX 78726 at 10:00 a.m. with a reception afterwards at the church.

Jan 3, 2013 Fellow Alumni, I was just informed of the death of Mark Thibo, Class of 1970. Listed below is the death notice Please keep the Thibo family in your prayers. Mark Edward Thibo April 10, 1952 to August 18, 2012 Mark Edward Thibo passed away peacefully August 18 after succumbing to a rapid but painless illness. He was in his home in Steilacoom overlooking the water, surrounded by his wife of 37 years Meredith, son Campbell, daughter Heather, Niece Shana and good friend Mike. His passing was accompanied by the sound of beautiful music sung by his children. Mark was born in Cleveland, Ohio, April 10, 1952 to John D. and Rita Thibo. Of his siblings he was preceded in death by Judy LeForce and Susan Thibo. He is survived by Jon Thibo (Ellen), Mary Beth Cornwell (Gary), Nancy Thibo (Adrian Hoye), Anne George (Loren), and Kate MacBride (Pat). He is also survived by many nieces, nephews and his grandson Teancum. Growing up in Bay Village, Ohio, he enjoyed boating and fishing on Lake Erie, time with friends, and sports. He attended St. Raphael's grade school, St. Edward High School, Heidleberg College in Tiffin, Ohio, then Peninsula College in Port Angeles, Washington where he received his AA Degree in Forestry. He had a deep appreciation for the outdoors, backpacking, walking the beach, and skipping stones. It was this love of nature that inspired a career in forestry and brought him to Port Angeles, Washington where he started a tree planting business and built a house in the mountains for his family. Mark began work with the Department of Natural Resources where he was introduced to wildland fire fighting. He worked as a timber and fire manager throughout his long career and worked right up until his illness as an Incident Commander of a type 2 team on a wildland fire in Wyoming. Marks ability to play Bluegrass music developed along with his forestry career. He participated in several bands over the years playing the standup bass, harmonica, mandolin, guitar and our favorite the banjo. He had aspirations for the fiddle but that dream will have to be fulfilled in the band in heaven. His musical ability inspired his children who both love to sing and play music and think back fondly to the late night band practices that put them to sleep in their childhood. Marks other past times included working with the Native American Tribes and many organizations to restore the Nisqually River Basin to its natural state. He also served faithfully in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints where he inspired many with his example of brotherly love and kindness to all. He enjoyed mentoring the next generation with humor and compassion and was active in the scouting program.

Dec 10, 2012 Fellow Alumni, Listed below is the obituary for Brother Donald McIntyre, C.S.C. Class of 1954, and brother of Kevin McIntyre, Class of 1953 (deceased). Please keep the McIntyre family in your prayers. October 19, 1935 - December 7, 2012 Brother Donald Patrick McIntyre, C.S.C., age 77, died on December 7, 2012 at Dujarie House, in Notre Dame, Indiana. He was born in Cleveland, Ohio on October 19, 1935, the son of John and Mary Ann (Gibbons) McIntyre. He attended St. James Elementary School and St. Edward High School in Lakewood, Ohio and graduated in 1954. He worked for a year and then followed his calling to join the Holy Cross Brothers and entered Sacred Heart Juniorate in Watertown, Wisconsin in September 1955. He began his religious training six months later at St. Joseph's Novitiate in Rolling Prairie, Indiana, where he pronounced his first vows on January 26, 1957. If you ever walked into a community gathering anywhere and heard waves of laughter, it was very possible that in the center of the group you would find Brother Donald McIntyre 'holding court.' He had his own way of recounting and coloring incidents and episodes in his life of many different ministries. Donald was never at a loss for words, an original 'happy face,' who could turn just about any circumstance into a hilarious story. He had a variety of assignments and experiences in Holy Cross. His first one was to learn the secrets of cooking from Brother John Chrysostom at Dujarie Hall. He then served as a canvasser for the Ave Maria magazine, and again cooked for the community at Columba Hall with Brother Amadeus. In 1966, he served as the assistant to the Mission Promoter, Brother Gonzaga Day, and helped him in many different chores. In 1969 he went to Boysville in Clinton, Michigan to help with caring for the students for the next 9 years. In 1978, he joined the Mountain Community of Holy Cross Brothers who were ministering to the needy in Coalfield and Harriman, Tennessee. He worked with Brother Gonzaga in his Thrift Shop and cared for the people in the parish of Blessed Sacrament Church for 7 years. In 1984, Donald was invited by a high school classmate to oversee and assist in a retirement community in Pompano Beach, Florida where he worked for 12 years, while also assisting the senior citizens in nearby parishes. He came back to Notre Dame in 1997 to join the nursing staff at Dujarie House. In 2001 he had a serious health issue which required open chest surgery and spent a year recuperating at St. Joseph Medical Center in South Bend before returning to reside with the community at Columba Hall. In 2008 he moved to the Schubert Villa at Holy Cross Village and in 2010 became a resident at Dujarie House where he continued his concern for others (especially his family and the many friends he made over the years) as well as entertaining the community and nursing staff with stories and his contagious saintly good humor. Visitation will be held on Tuesday, December 11th, at Our Lady of Holy Cross Chapel from 9:00 to 11:00 am on the grounds of Holy Cross Village at Notre Dame. The Mass of Resurrection will then follow with burial afterward at St. Joseph Cemetery of the Village. Kaniewski Funeral Home is handling the arrangements.

Please keep the Schoeplein family in your prayers. James Richard Schoeplein ("Jim") passed away on Monday, November 12th, at Hospice of Mount Joy surrounded by loving family. Jim had been ill for 3 1/2 years suffering from lymphoma. He was born in Cleveland, Ohio on November 16, 1934, the son of the late Wilfred C. and Mary H. Schoeplein. Jim was devoted to his wife of 54 years, Sheila Killeen Schoeplein, who survives him, as well as to his sons, Jeffrey F. Schoeplein of Sterling, VA, Jim Schoeplein Jr. of Lancaster; daughters, Michelle Archer of Houston, TX, Monica Larson (Eric) of Westlake Village, CA, and Megan Mergenhagen (Bob) of Royersford, PA. In addition, he was a loving grandfather to Lindsey and Caitlyn Schoeplein; Robert and Meredith Archer; Madeline, Jack, Mary Kathryn, Owen and Sean Larson; and Cecelia and Andrew Mergenhagen. He was the dear brother of the late Charles W. Schoeplein of Ocean City, MD, and surviving siblings, Karen (Ron) Turgeon of St. Louis, MO, Donald K (Connie) Schoeplein of Atlanta, GA, and Kevin D. (Lisa) Schoeplein of Peoria, IL. A devout Catholic, Jim was an active member of St. Anthony of Padua Church serving as a Eucharistic minister of Communion and past member of the Pastoral Council -- he previously had fulfilled these two functions while a member of St. Anne's Parish. He received his education at St. Christopher's School, Rocky River, OH, Benedictine High School in Cleveland, OH and was a graduate of Xavier University in Cincinnati, OH. He remained a strong advocate of Catholic education supporting Lancaster Catholic High School long after his five children and two granddaughters had graduated. An Ecumenical interest led Jim to become involved with the Lancaster County Council of Churches serving on their Board of Directors from 2002 until 2006. He was a member of the Lancaster Knights of Columbus #867. In Jim's business career, he always had his eyes open to what was new and innovative. He began his career with National Screw and Manufacturing in Cleveland, later becoming a salesperson for Accurate Threaded Fasteners of Chicago, and United Screw and Bolt in Philadelphia. He found his real "home" in 1967 when he moved to Lancaster to become a member of the National Bearings "family." From his starting position as Sales Manager, he went on to become Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of that Company until he left in August of 1991. To his death, he had a special place in his heart for Boyd Heath, the owner of the company with whom he shared many special endeavors. In 1991, Jim fulfilled a lifelong ambition to open his own manufacturer's representative agency, Quadradix, later Quadradix International, and stayed actively involved until the latter stages of his illness. During these years, he served on the Boards of the Cycle Parts and Accessories Assn. and the Anti-Friction Bearings, Manufacturer's Association. Whatever he did, he did with enthusiasm and with his love for and interest in people. He enjoyed sports and was an avid hunter, fisherman, skier, and he never met a golf course he didn't like. One of his greatest joys came from his membership in the Tucquan Club and the time he spent "on the river" with fellow Tucquaners. He also enjoyed taking cruises with the Lancaster Pirates. He was a 40-year Member of the Lancaster Country Club where he served on the Board of Governors, a past member of Meadia Heights Golf Club, and Seaview Country Clubs. He and Sheila traveled extensively often on golf junkets to Ireland and Palm Desert, CA. He enjoyed his semi-annual cruises with his siblings and Mike and Karen Killeen. Family was paramount to him and each year the extended family gathered for an August vacation, first in Canada, then in Hilton Head, SC. He also was a member of the Lancaster Liederkranz and loved to comment that his list of club memberships included ¬Costco and he wanted that in his obituary. The visitation will be held from 3 P.M. to 5 P.M. and 7 P.M. to 9 P.M. on Thursday, November 15, 2012, with a recitation of the Holy Rosary at 8:30 P.M., at the Charles F.

In 2008, he relocated the company to larger facilities in Strongsville. His efforts are recalled, for many, by the large number of technical papers he presented and published.

In 1998, he was honored by the Center for Health Affairs for his contributions to health care in northeastern Ohio.

During the 1960s he was a member of the Commission on Catholic Community Action and headed its Housing Task Force. The City Club of Cleveland was one of his favorite hangouts. He served as President in 1976, and, as part of the U.S. Bicentennial celebration for that year, led the group on a trip to England for its first Forum away from Cleveland. The Rowfant Club, a focus for his interest in books, elected him to its presidency in 1989 and to be chairman of its 100th Anniversary Celebration. Among his most interesting presentations were those on the Tremont neighborhood, his Life in Baseball, and the demise of the Sterling Hotel. Mr. Cavano attended East High School in Cleveland, graduated from Case Western Reserve University in 1947 and did two years of graduate work in Mathematical Statistics at Columbia University.

Richilano, Jr. Vince, as he was known throughout his life, attended Miami University, where in 1936 he won the heavyweight boxing championship, Case Institute of Technology, and Baldwin-Wallace College. During World War II, he served our country in technical positions within the defense industry at White Motor and Westinghouse. Following the war he continued his work in the defense industry at the Cadillac Tank Plant in Berea, Ohio until 1958. Thereafter, he founded Zephyr Engineering in Cleveland, and later expanded operations to Ashland, Ohio, where he continued to work until shortly before his death. Vince was a lifetime golfer and a true student of the game. He was also a passionate sportsman who built his own hunting rifles. An avid reader, Vince had a knack for turning sentences into stories. His Jeromesville property served as his haven and refuge, the place where he wrote stories that often reflected his Italian heritage. He was an excellent cook who over the decades staged numerous pasta dinner fundraisers for charitable organizations. At 6'4" in his prime, Vince was a towering presence, yet was known for his gentle touch and loving affection for his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. He is survived by four children: Mariann Byrne of Lima, Ohio, John Richilano of Denver, Colorado, Mark Richilano of Hood River, Oregon, and David Richilano of Ashland, Ohio.
