John William “Bill” Morris, Jr. (Lt. Colonel USAF Retired), 96, of Simsbury, beloved husband of Mary Jane (Dore) Morris passed away peacefully Tuesday, August 26, 2014 at River Ridge of Avon.

Most of Bill’s business career was in sales, first with Autographic Business Forms followed by Baltimore Business Forms and TAB Products.

William Morris, III and his wife Barbara of San Francisco, CA, Thomas Dore Morris and his wife Ann Marie of Plainville, MA, Jeffrey Lyons Morris and his wife Joni of Simsbury, Paul Duane Morris and his wife Theresa of Raleigh, NC, and Timothy James Morris and his wife Lynn of Granby, ten grandchildren and six great grandchildren.

Phyllis and Family: Carol and I were shocked to learn of Gerard’s passing, especially in such an unexpected manner. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you at this time of great loss. From our days on Waterbury Avenue and our almost daily trek to Manhattan College, we had a close relationship. Gerard was a big man with a gentle personality and always interested in my AF career. We had many good times over the years – and it was so fulfilling to see your family grow and be so successful. Your recent 50th Anniversary is a testament to your enduring and loving relationship.

The days ahead will be tough, but let’s hope family and friends will bring mutual support and love as we all grieve this loss.

JOBIT: Hogan, Bob [MC1975 RIP] by Colon, Philip J. (MC1962)

2014-Aug-21

Good Morning All,
 
Tom McCarthy has shared some sad news with us.
 
Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) 
 
# – # – # – # – #   
 
FYI, I just shared word with members of the College’s Pipe Band that its founder, Bob Hogan was killed in a tragic boating accident yesterday off the north shore of Long Island.
Bob received his MBA from the College in 1975 and was asked by Br. Kenneth Fitzgerald to help him start the band in 1980-81. He remained involved in the NYPD Emerald Society over the years and was himself a retired captain with the NYPD and a former assistant transportation commissioner. 
 
Bob was the father of Mike Hogan ’91 who took over for his father as director of the Band some 15 years ago or so. 
The Following was the message Tom sent the Members of the Band and others.
 
Sad news to share with you all this morning. A boating fire off the Manhasset Marina yesterday afternoon claimed the life of our own Bob Hogan MBA ’75, one of the Band’s founders and father of our current director, Mike Hogan ’91. Read more.
 
I heard from Mike this morning who is naturally without words. I’ll pass along word about any arrangements when their family shares them. 
 
Bob was a great man, a family man, and cared deeply about the College, its students, and our Irish and musical tradition. He touched so many through his outstanding career of civil and public service and will be sorely missed. 
 
Please keep Bob, Mike, and the Hogan family in your prayers. 
 
Tom
