JOBIT: Matthews, William E. [MC1964 RIP]



William E. Matthews
Jan. 20, 1936-July 14, 2014
By Star staff | July 16, 2014 – 7:21pm

William E. Matthews enjoyed fishing, especially freshwater fishing in Maine. He took up decoy carving in his retirement, and he enjoyed golf and photography, but “everything else was secondary to his grandchildren,” his son, Dave Matthews, said.

He had two grandsons and twin granddaughters, now ranging in age from their teens to 20s, who visited him and his wife, Catherine, every summer in East Hampton. “He loved to spend time with them,” Mrs. Matthews said.

Mr. Matthews died on Monday at Southampton Hospital. He was 78 and had been diagnosed with brain cancer at the end of last summer.

The son of William H. Matthews and the former Catherine Ramsay, he was born in Mount Vernon, N.Y., on Jan. 20, 1936. He grew up there, graduating from A.B. Davis High School and later from Manhattan College. He served in the Army from 1955 to 1957.

He married Elizabeth DeCarlo on Sept. 7, 1957, at St. Catharine’s Church in Pelham, N.Y., and moved with her to nearby Eastchester, where the couple raised their son and two daughters. Mr. Matthews worked for the telephone company, first New York Telephone and later AT&T, for his entire career, eventually retiring as a division manager.

In the mid to late-1980s, the couple followed friends to East Hampton and bought a summer house. When Mr. Matthews retired in 1997, they sold that house and their house in Eastchester and bought one on Atlantic Street in East Hampton. They spent winters in New Smyrna Beach, Fla. Mr. Matthews played golf there and at the Sag Harbor Golf Club.

He was a member of Most Holy Trinity Catholic Church, where a Mass will be said next Thursday at noon. A second service is planned for July 27 at 1 p.m. at Tutto Bella restaurant in Eastchester.

In addition to his wife and son, who lives in Edgewater, N.J., Mr. Matthews is survived by his daughters, Lynn M. Mahoney of Eastchester and Kathleen Forcello of Guilford, Conn.

His family has suggested donations to Most Holy Trinity Church, 79 Buell Lane, East Hampton 11937, or to a charity of choice.

[JR: Sadly. I don’t know why stuff comes up as “new” years after the fact. I know that Google isn’t infallible. And, I know the inet is not “the all seeing and all knowing eye”. This just proves it. Hope that all the readers and non-readers share what they find. I know I don’t “collect” it all. Funny how it runs in spurts.]

JEMAIL: Kilgannon, Brian [MC1976] remembers Buckley, Gerald ‘Jerry’ F. [MC1964 RIP]

Bob & Noreen, Vin & Kathy, Prayer Group,

Below is an email an email sent to me by Fellow Jasper and Prayer Group Member Brian Kilgannon ‘ 76. Brian’s beautiful words so well express and capture the essence of a very good man. I want to share this heartfelt tribute. Bob and Vin, I hope that you are able to share this with Jerry’s family and your Team Mates. Thank you. God Bless.

Phil Colon

From Brian Kilgannon;

I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Jerry Buckley.

I first met Mr. Buckley in 1964, when he was a day camp counselor, along with my sister, at Tilden Day Camp in Brooklyn. He was handsome, charismatic and very friendly in a caring way to a nine year old, namely me. Later, I had Mr. Buckley as my Economics teacher in Nazareth High School, and I remember my grades in Economics were so good that he exempted me from the Economics final in 1972.

Jerry Buckley is the one clear reason why I decided to go to Manhattan College. he was very proud of his association with Manhattan and I vividly recall him wearing his Manhattan College Spiked Shoe Club jacket to class.

Mr. Buckley was a gentleman and a fine athlete, an excellent role model to young men and an exemplar of what it is to be a Jasper.

We never anticipate the end. Our Christian faith instructs us in the resurrection of the soul and the transition to eternal life.

Jerry Buckley lives now in our memories, with his flashing smile and adherence to values ever present in the lives he touched.

For these good & wholesome memories I say thank you to Mr. Buckley, and each of us who were touched by his presence are better for having known him.

Brian Kilgannon ‘76

JOBIT: Bowen, William John III [MC1964 RIP]


Bowen, William John III

Passed away peacefully on March 1st, 2013 with his son Stanley and his wife Carol by his side.

Bill was born in New York on October 17th, 1942. He graduated from Manhattan College with a BA in Business and went on to get an MBA. In 1966 he joined the Air Force and quickly became Base Education Officer, later retiring at the rank of Captain. He returned to New York in 1970 and started his career with Peat, Marwick, Mitchell & Co. In 1972, he met Carol Ann, and they married that same year. Soon after, Bill accepted a position with American Express and relocated to Frankfurt, Germany. While in Germany, Bill and Carol became parents to Stanley. American Express brought them to Phoenix for the first time. They moved to Texas with Miller Brewing, Pennsylvania with Hershey Foods, Chicago with Borg Warner and Columbus with The Ohio State University.

Bill followed his heart in retirement and he and Carol settled in Paradise Valley. While in retirement all of his energy went into volunteering. Some of the volunteer activities he enjoyed working at include: the dog shelter, St. Mary’s Food Bank, Salvation Army, Franciscan Renewal Center, National Guard job fair, 3 Day Walk, and the PV Car Show. But his real passion was being a Paradise Valley Volunteer Police Officer where he made strong friendships.

Bill was a man who made you laugh. He was loving, giving, and a friend to all. He was an unbelievable husband, father, and grandfather. His faith was strong and his last thoughts were of family and friends who have gone before him. He was ready to meet them all again with God by his side. He is going to watch over his wife Carol, son Stanley, grandson Patrick and daughter-in-law Kerry.

A Memorial Mass will be held at 9am, March 19th at the Franciscan Renewal Center, 5802 E. Lin

Kevin was a class mate of mine and a relative of the O’Neill family who sent sons Pat and Jimmy to MC. Kevin was thus a regular at our former James K. O’Neill Memorial golf outing which sadly was discontinued a few years back when the matriarch of the O’Neill family was called Home.
