Harry J. Kammerer
April 16, 1917 – April 20, 2014
Obituary

ORLEANS – Harry J. Kammerer, son of the late Agnes W. Kammerer and Harry A. Kammerer, passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving wife, Maureen, of 65 years, and his devoted family, on April 20, 2014.

He was born on April 16, 1917, in New York. He was a graduate of Manhattan College with a major in Business and Law. On the day after Pearl Harbor, he volunteered to join the Army and was later assigned to the Signal Corps, 12th Army Group serving in the Ardennes, Central Europe, Northern France, and the Rhineland. He was awarded the Presidential Unit Service Award as well as several citations and Battle Stars. Harry met his soulmate, Maureen Dufficy, upon his return and the inseparable couple was married November 13, 1946. Harry joined the family business, Kamco Aluminum Products. His grandfather, Jacob Kammerer, was granted the original zinc weather stripping patent in 1911. Kamco was one of the very first companies to use extrusions. The company was granted patents on window and door construction. The products were known for clever design and indomitable longevity.

Harry and Maureen raised their family in Bronxville, New York, where he was a volunteer in the Emergency Room at Lawrence Hospital, a member of the Lions Club, former president of the Bronxville Camera Club, the first lecturer at St. Joseph’s Church, and a member of the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick in Westchester County. His favorite times were visiting the Botanical Gardens, ice skating and roller skating at Coney Island, and Sunday walks with his wife and children. Harry devoted his life to his family. Memorable summers were spent on the Cape in Wellfleet swimming, surf fishing and sailing.

He retired to Orleans in 1984, where he designed his dream house overlooking the town cove. Never a night passed where he wouldn’t marvel at the sunset and look towards the next day with a morning kiss from his wife, optimism, his first cup of coffee, the swoop of seagulls above the glistening water, and the sun on his face. Harry was an active woodworker. As a member of Man Power, he made benches, stools, and quilt racks for the Holly Berry Bazaar. Up until four months ago, he was a lecturer at St. Joan of Arc Church, known for his presence and beautiful speaking voice. He was also a member of the Orleans Yacht Club. Harry became known as “The Sticker Man,” issuing seasonal beach permits through the Town Hall. He held this position for 17 years.

Harry leaves his loving wife, Maureen; five sons and their spouses: H. Dennis and Martha Kammerer of Carmel, N.Y.; Brian and Glenda Kammerer of Rowayton, CT; Gregory and Annie Kammerer of Wakefield, R.I.; Brendan and Linda Kammerer of Marblehead, MA.; Kieran and Tamara Kammerer of Hallowell, Maine; and one daughter, Maureen Wittbold of Andover, MA. He was known as “Pops” to his 13 grandchildren: Maura Shirey; Jack, Brian, and Allison Wittbold; Gabrielle Kammerer and Ashley Stevens; Willa and Grey Kammerer; Piers, Clio, and Louisa Kammerer; and Hannah and Emma Kammerer. Pops became a great-grandfather on November 12, 2013 to Shawn William Shirey Jr. He is survived by his sister, Lynn K. Andrews, of New Rochelle, New York. He was predeceased by his infant daughter, Mary Elizabeth; his brother, William T. Kammerer of Charleston, S.C.; and a sister, Agnes K. Berlow, of California.

A funeral Mass will be celebrated on Friday, April 25, 2014, 11:00 AM, at St. Joan of Arc Church, 61 Canal St., Orleans, MA. Please join the family for a reception in the Parish Hall following internment.

“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.”

L. JAY OLIVA
Obituary

OLIVA–L. Jay. The NYU community grieves deeply the loss of its cherished 14th president, L. Jay Oliva. No one served NYU better or more faithfully than he, or did more to shape the NYU we know today.

Starting as a member of the history faculty in 1960, he went on to be the last dean of the Heights campus, helping to guide NYU through some of its most challenging moments. From that point forward, through his tenure as chancellor and then president, he had a key hand in engineering what has been described as the greatest success story in contemporary American higher education.

Understanding the diversity of student success at NYU, he cheered on NYU’s top students, our athletes, our performing artists, and our community service volunteers. Educator, mentor, leader, and great colleague and friend — he loved NYU through-and-through, believed in its promise, and led the way in making NYU a respected national research university and jump-starting its global efforts.

All those who wear violet mourn today, and we send our deepest sympathies to his wife of 54 years, Mary Ellen, his son Eddie and wife Christine, and his son Jay, wife Tina, and their children Caelinn and Declan. His absence from our community will be keenly felt, but his memory will live on in the great institution he did so much to build.

Martin Lipton, Chair, NYU Board of Trustees
John Sexton, President, NYU

NYU’s Fourteenth President L. Jay Oliva Passes Away
By Dana Daniels on April 18th, 2014

On Thursday April 17, NYU’s fourteenth president L. Jay Oliva passed away. His cause of death has yet to be released. The New York State native was 80-years-old at the time of his passing.

A graduate of Manhattan College and Syracuse University, Oliva began his tenure at NYU as a Russian professor in 1960 and served as an administrator from 1972 to 1991, when he assumed the role of NYU’s fourteenth president. After 11 years of service as president, Oliva passed the torch to John Sexton in 2002.

”Under Jay Oliva, we have really achieved much of what we dreamt of 25 years ago,” NYU chairman Martin Lipton told the Times in 2001. ”We have finished the transformation from a regional commuter school to a global university.”

Under Oliva, NYU completed the first $1 billion fundraising campaign in higher education. Furthermore, the idea of NYU as a “global university” can be directly attributed to Oliva, who wanted to give every NYU student the opportunity to study abroad. And as the American university that sends the most students abroad, it’s safe to say that Oliva’s mission has been pursued even after his presidency.

In the years after his retirement from the presidency, Oliva remained a part of the NYU community through his leadership of the Skirball Center.

“The NYU we know today — the NYU that attracts the finest students from all over the world, that can go head-to-head to recruit scholars at the top of their fields, that sends more students to study abroad than any other, that is a member of the University Athletic Association — would not have been possible without Jay Oliva,” said Lipton and Sexton in an email to the NYU community. “He was a key engineer of the transformation of NYU.”

Our thoughts are with Oliva’s family and loved ones.

JOBIT: O’Brien, Robert Bob [MC1953 RIP]

O’BRIEN, Robert Bob

Died on April 8, 2014 as a result of a fall-related head injury. He was 82 years old. He leaves his wife Caroline, his sister Margaret O’Brien Lavallee, and a large family of 7 children and step-children, 17 grandchildren, a niece, 3 nephews, and 7 great-nieces/nephews.

Bob grew up in Providence, RI, attended Manhattan College and later Harvard Business School, and also served as an artillery officer in the US Army.

Bob had wide-ranging pursuits and accomplishments throughout his career. He was a successful entrepreneur in the 1960s with pioneering ventures including the first company to market corporate fitness programs and an early cable-TV venture that linked surgeons to rural low income hospitals in Puerto Rico. He advised both Massachusetts and Puerto Rico governments on the development of commercial fisheries and he launched a company that consulted with the Federal government on bio-dynamic and ocean-related research. He worked for many years as a management consultant for a broad range of corporate and pro-bono clients, ranging from several Fortune 500 companies to St. Josephs Abbey in Massachusetts.

He was a longtime Board Director for the Carroll Center for the Blind and also for the National Braille Press. He tutored and mentored many students at the School for the Deaf and Blind in St. Augustine, Florida.

Bob loved his hobbies as well. He was an avid reader, a beautiful writer, an accomplished amateur historian and a lover of classical and jazz music. He spent thousands of hours restoring, tinkering with and showing off his collection of old cars. He loved sailing, from his boyhood summers on Narragansett Bay to later summers on Cape Cod and Boston Harbor. In recent years he took up soaring and greatly enjoyed his time both in the air and on the ground with his fellow glider pilots.

He was a regular visitor to St. Josephs Abbey, and his time spent there with his brothers and in retreat helped him to reinforce his faith and to maintain a sense of peace with changes in his life.

More than any of these interests and accomplishments, though, Bob loved his family. He was a devoted husband, father and grandfather. While juggling the pressures of his career, he took time each night to read to his children while they were growing up and also shared many special projects and activities. As the grandchildren arrived and grew, he similarly built and cherished a special connection with each of them. He wrote and called regularly, sent thoughtful gifts, found special projects to share, and sought to spend time with each person individually during family get-togethers.

He and Caroline traveled regularly across the country and to Europe to visit their children and grandchildren. Bob and Carolines homes in Maine and Florida hosted many boisterous family get-togethers over the past decades, gatherings that reinforced family bonds and created many happy memories. His long devotion to his family created his most memorable and lasting legacy a close-knit, loving and thriving extended family that misses him greatly.

A memorial service will be held at St. Josephs Abbey in May. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to either St. Josephs Abbey (167 N Spencer Rd, Spencer, MA 01562) or to National Braille Press (88 St. Stephen Street, Boston, MA 02115)
