Costello, Donald (MC1954)

From the above Google search I found his obituary. I talked with two of his children. He was incapacitated for the last ten years. Joe was Regent of ASB in 1954. He was in the first Air Force ROTC class and was commissioned in 1954 and served in the Air Force during the Korean war.

He was a senior sales Manager at Proctor and Gamble and was loved by those he worked with.

I wrote and submitted this information twice and was told that it was not received. I submitted is two more times each time requesting that I be informed that it was received. I have been looking for the announcement for over a week.


[JR: I don’t know why it did show up when you submitted it. I don’t see what the connection is to Alma Mater but maybe I’m just clueless. ]

# – # – # – # – #  2015-Nov-19 @ 16:16

[JR: Receive an email correcting me. This now cites the correct “O’Dea”.]    

You do a great job.

I did send you my obituary where I added to that found on web from conversations with children.
Here is where I started:

 Do your magic and make it well…

# – # – #

[JR: I THINK I have it correct now.]

[JR: To all Jaspers, please write your obit today and include mention of Alma Mater so as to prevent extra work on the Research Desk at the Virtual Jasper Newsroom. Laugh! Seriously, I wrote my own years ago and update it on my birthday every year. Helps my humility. And I have so much to be humble about. Dona Nobis Pacem.]

Good Evening All,

I have just received some very sad news from Nancy Maksomski (and coincidently from Jasper Jottings.) Sister Marcella was a long time friend of Nancy and the Maksomski Family and has been in our prayers for some time. Nancy had a wonderful visit with Sister Marcella in January. At that time she was not showing the extreme signs of her illness so it was a joyous visit albeit the last time Nancy would see her very dear friend. Sr. Marcella was a very caring, dedicated and accomplished Servent of her Lord. Please keep Sr. Marcella, Nancy and the Maksomski Family, Sr. Marcella’s Family and Community in your prayers as this exceptional member of her Community is mourned by so many. Thank you. God Bless.

JFOUND: Jones, Louis Woodard III [MC1954 RIP]



Lou Jones


Teacher, coach, Olympic athlete

A talented high school and college athlete, Lou Jones set two world track records and was part of a gold medal winning Olympic relay team in 1956. He was also a devoted family man who raised his children, coached, and taught high school and college in the town where he was born.

Louis Woodard Jones III was born on January 15, 1932, in New Rochelle, New York, a small suburban town just north of New York City. He graduated from New Rochelle High School in 1950, then went south to attend New York’s Manhattan College. In college, he studied business administration and became a star member of the track team, becoming the Intercollegiate Association of Amateur Athletes of America (IC4A) champion in the 440-yard race in his senior year.

After graduating from college in 1954, Jones entered the U.S. Army. He continued to run track throughout his military career, and it was while he was in the Army in 1955 that he broke his first record. That year, Jones participated as part of the U.S. team in the Pan American Games, held that year in Mexico City. Begun in 1951, the Pan American (or Pan Am) Games is an amateur sports competition among the nations of North, Central, and South America. Like the Olympics, the Pan Am Games occur every four years in a different city and include a wide variety of sporting events.
