Peter Kuzniewski, of North Bellmore, faced a daunting challenge relatively early in his military career. Because of extenuating circumstances, while in flight school and still attending college, he was forced to earn his pilot’s license with only seven weeks of training.

JOBIT: Morley, Christopher T. [MC1976 RIP] on 2017-Jun-19



Christopher T. Morley
1954 – 2017

Christopher T. Morley of Clarence Center, NY (formerly of North Salem, NY and Danbury, CT) passed away suddenly on Monday, June 19, 2017.

Chris was born in the Bronx, NY on May 9, 1954 to Thomas and Vera (nee Planells) Morley and grew up in the Throggs Neck section of the Bronx.

He is survived by his three children, Christopher Morley, MD, Catherine and Elizabeth Morley all of North Salem. Also surviving are his wife, Susan of Clarence Center and his step-daughters, Diana Sedita and Laura Cianflone and her husband, Andrew. Chris’ three step-granddaughters, Courtney, Tessa and Emmie Cianflone will miss their “Baboo” terribly.

Chris also leaves behind his brother, Brian and sister-in-law Linda Morley; his sister Andrea O’Boyle, brother-in-law Pat and nephew Patrick O’Boyle. There are also many loving aunts, uncles, cousins and friends who will miss Chris and cherish their memories of him. He truly loved his family and spending time with them.

Chris graduated from Manhattan College in 1976 and went on to earn a Juris Doctor Degree in 1981 from Brooklyn Law School. He established a successful career in the NYS Court System which spanned from 1977 to 2010 when he retired.

He will also be remembered as having served as a Councilman on the North Salem Town Board for 16 years from 1991 through 2007.

Chris was a man of great intelligence and had an even greater sense of humor. His interests were varied and eclectic – one never knew what email would pop up in their in-box from him. He enjoyed documentaries on world history; loved debating politics; delving into family genealogy; watching movies; writing fiction; reading; telling tales of his Hamptons adventures and so much more. He was definitely one of a kind and will never be forgotten.

Wake on Friday, June 23, 4 pm to 8 pm – Beecher’s Funeral Home, Brewster, NY. Funeral mass on Saturday, June 24 at 11:30 am – St. Joseph’s RC Church, Somers, NY. Burial at Peach Pond Cemetery, North Salem, NY.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer’s Association (alz.org) would be greatly appreciated.

JEMAIL: McEneney, Mike (MC1953) cites an NYT story of compassion


Dear John,

Today’s New York Times at page A 19 has an article:”After a Crash in Times Square, Going the Extra Mile to Help a Victim’s Family.” About a NYPD Sgt, and the people of the New Jersey Town of Dunellen, who went
above and beyond to help a family in need.

A heartwarming piece.

JNEWS: DeCosimo, Tonia [MC1991] author “Single and Not Settling!”



Press Release

Tonia DeCosimo’s Expertise Shines in “Single and Not Settling! A Journey of Surviving the Dating World”
Dating Expert offers advice and hope in new book. Also available for seminars and book signings.

Jun. 19, 2017 / PRZen / NEW YORK — Tonia De Cosimo, author of the new book Single and Not Settling! A Journey of Surviving the Dating World, has taken her advice and her experiences “on the road.” In addition to two major book signings, at Book Revue in Huntington, NY and Turn of the Corkscrew Books and Wine in Rockville Centre, NY, she’s also been featured and interviewed on 21 different radio broadcasts. Tonia also writes for The Date Mix, Zoosk.com’s online magazine, and also offers seminars and lectures on dating and relationships.

“Where do you get the time?” we asked her. “We know you run several businesses.”

“I love what I do, and it’s my mission to help people,” she laughed, “especially women who are still searching for love but aren’t willing to settle.”

Tonia’s Date Mix bi-weekly column gives her the chance to share her experiences, advice, and ideas with those who are facing their own dating challenges. Her own journey has created a core of outstanding advice, and her book Single and Not Settling! spreads her message out to people not involved with online dating. Interviews and reviews with her have appeared in the Huffington Post, Thrive Global and recently on PR Newswire’s Jumbo screen.

Tonia is a successful entrepreneur and received her B.S. degree in Elementary Education and English from Manhattan College. Her career path, however, took her into the fields of marketing, publishing, and sales consulting in which she has worked successfully for the past 25 years. In that time, she has built and managed several companies including her own. She is also a member of N.A.F.E. (National Association Of Female Executives). In her spare time, she enjoys cooking, travel and spending time with family and friends. However, her all-time favorite is shoe shopping. Tonia, the proud step-mom of two teenagers, resides on Long Island with her husband, whom she met while finishing her book.

 Providing a forum for singles, and creating an atmosphere of give and take, is the crux of Tonia’s mission. Her lectures, book signings and even media appearances all lead to the same message. She says, “Don’t settle. First find yourself, know yourself and then you can seek someone to share your life, not complete it.”

 You can find Single and Not Settling! on Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble.com and in bookstores. For more insights into Tonia De Cosimo’s advice and life, visit her website at http://toniadecosimo.com.
