ObituaryGuest 

James Shannon Hamilton
November 17, 1928 – December 17, 2014

Shortly after his birth on November 17, 1928, in Brooklyn, New York, Jim’s parents, C. George and Margaret Wilson Hamilton, immigrants from Scotland, moved to Staten Island with his sister of dear memory, Mary Hamilton Cahalane. All precede him in death.

At 17, he joined the Marine Corps, completed paratrooper training, and served in the Pacific, achieving the rank of Sergeant. Jim earned his BA from Manhattan College, class of ’53, and after a year at Columbia Law School, joined Francis I. DuPont as an investment broker in New York City. In 1965, he became manager at the DuPont office in Terre Haute, Indiana, moving to Indianapolis in 1969, to manage the DuPont office there. From 1980 through 1995, he served as Managing Partner of Contract Draperies of Indiana, Inc., a family owned business serving commercial clients.

Jim was a member of Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish, and since 1979, of St. Matthew Parish, Indianapolis. He served faithfully on Sunday mornings on the collection counters committee for over ten years. Jim was ever grateful for his Faith, and the community of friends developed at IHM and St. Matthew’s. He was an avid reader, enjoyed classical music, especially the opera, and in fact, all the fine arts.

Being a member of THE BEST SET, a neighborhood couples group that played volleyball every Sunday night for over twenty-five years, enriched his life with dear friends and treasured memories.

Married in 1959 to Sandra Doyle, together they saw with joy their children graduate from college, marry wonderful spouses, and add 16 beloved grandchildren to the family.

He is survived by his son, James and wife, Catherine (Gates) and their sons Andrew and Ryan; daughter, Julia and husband, Marcus Cziesla and their children Lauren and Christopher; daughter, Jennifer and husband William Brady and their sons: William, Patrick, Michael and John; son, Jeffrey and wife, Kimberly (Semler) and their children: Patrick, Mary, Grace and Connor; daughter, Jeanne Margaret and husband, Clint Hardin and their daughters, Ella and Christina; son, John and wife, Angela (Elstner) and their children Collin and Lilly. The love and support of his children, their spouses and the grandchildren, as well as their close relationship with each other, was one of Jim’s greatest treasures.

Survivors also include his nephews, John and Thomas Cahalane; nieces, Elizabeth (Cahalane) Grimaldi and Susan (Cahalane) Cicalese, Sheri Doyle, Denise Doyle, Lori (Doyle) Mohr, and Sandra (Doyle) McCullum.

The family is very grateful for the exceptional and compassionate care James received from the staff of Riverwalk Village Nursing Home in Noblesville, Indiana.

Friends may call from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. on Sunday, December 21, 2014 in Flanner and Buchanan- Broad Ripple . A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11 a.m. on Monday, December 22, 2014 at St. Matthew Catholic Church, 4100 East 56th Street, Indianapolis. Burial will be in Oaklawn Memorial Gardens Cemetery.

He enjoyed dancing, traveling (especially to the ocean), gardening, PBS TV, word games, and watching his beloved Mets and UConn Husky Women’s basketball. He had a calm presence, was devoted to his family and church, and had a good sense of humor.

Staff from three floors of Danbury Healthcare where he was dearly loved, came to say goodbye, eyes streaming, on his last day and we will be forever grateful for the care he received there.

He was predeceased by his brother, Frank, and his sister, Alfie.

Edward R. Brohel
January 14, 1932 – October 6, 2014
Posted: Thursday, October 9, 2014 3:16 pm

PLATTSBURGH – Edward R. Brohel, 82, of Plattsburgh, died peacefully at home on Monday, Oct. 6, 2014, from complications of Parkinson’s Disease. Born Jan. 14, 1932, in Brooklyn, he was the son of the late Margaret McGee and the late Edward Brohel.

Edward started grade school in Woodhaven and continued his secondary education at Bishop Loughlin High School in Brooklyn in 1946, where he met his lifelong friend Edmund Egan on day one. Edward went on to pursue history and art history, graduating from Manhattan College, and furthering his studies at Brooklyn College and NYU Graduate School.

From a tender age, Ed lived a life filled with art and music. He first taught art, at the age of 14, to a group of public school students gathered around his family’s dining room table, and to his mother’s chagrin, used the living room as the venue for his first ever curated show. When he collected his students’ small fees, he financed his very first opera subscription.

Edward’s professional work began in earnest at the Doris Meltzer Gallery in New York, followed by co-ownership of galleries in New York and Washington with potter Jill Hinkley. His teaching of art and architectural studies at NYU, and St. Peter’s College, New Jersey, were the springboard to his academic career.

His deep commitment to art led him to SUNY Plattsburgh, where in 1978 he became Director of the Plattsburgh State Art Museum, living his passion for the next 30 years. During that time, the College’s collection grew from 500 to 8000 pieces, with the Student Association becoming a committed partner in the acquisition of art on campus. Their participation and friendship were a never ending source of joy to Ed throughout his tenure. Teaching held a special place in his heart – his mind was attuned to the unusual fusion of the artistic, historical and political realms, and the sharing of his ideas inspired not only students, but all those who spent time in his company.

In addition to expanding the Meisel Collection, the Student Association Collection, the Nina Winkel Collection and the Slatkin Study Room and Collection, and inaugurating the Holocaust Memorial, new galleries were established: the Rockwell Kent Gallery, the Hans and Vera Hirsch Collection, the Louise Norton Room, and the Winkel Sculpture Court.

His vision of art as central to human understanding became a part of the whole Plattsburgh community when, with co-curator Don Osborne, Ed began the Sculpture Park. Installation of large sculptural works on the lawns of the College changed the landscape of the College, and the ways in which people of Plattsburgh came to visualize art.

Ed served as Chairman of the State University of New York Art Gallery Directors and, from 1984 until 1992, he produced the Educated Eye , a publication of the Albany Museum’s study of the holdings of the State University of New York art collections. From 1993 to 1997, Ed chaired the Plattsburgh State Faculty Senate, and was awarded the Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Professional Service. He also received the College Council Distinguished Service Award and the Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Scholarship and Creative Activities. Along with the Council on the Arts for Clinton County, Ed curated and presented the WCFE Arts Auction for many years.

Ed retired from the College in 2008, but remained active in the art community. He then had more time to spend with his beloved Bette – they loved to travel, visit New York museums, watch ballet, listen to Sunday afternoon concerts in Montreal, and welcome friends to their beautiful home. On Sept. 17, 2013, he and his wife were honored for their joint service to the College by the dedication of the Edward and Bette Brohel, Museum Without Walls, which places works of art in public spaces throughout the campus.
