JOBIT: Leary, Tim [MC1967 RIP] 2018-Feb-13 passing reported


Legendary local high school hoops coach passes away

*** begin quote ***

Legendary St. Francis Prep boys basketball coach Tim Leary died Tuesday morning after a more than year-long battle with gallbladder cancer. He was 73. Leary died at Mount Sinai Hospital in Brooklyn, according to the school.

*** and ***

He also led St. Francis Prep’s basketball team to the city title game as a player, losing to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (then Lew Alcindor) and Power Memorial in 1963. Leary went on to play baseball and basketball at Manhattan College. He spent 30 years as a teacher and dean in the New York City schools system after beginning his teaching career at the now closed St. Augustine High School in Park Slope.

His wife, Claudia, died in 2016 after a three-year battle with cancer. He spoke about her to the crowd during his final home game last season and those close to him talked of how much he missed her.

“He wasn’t the same after [Claudia] died,” Fischetti said. “He could see his heart was broken.”

After complaining of stomach issues, he was diagnosed with cancer last year. Initial chemotherapy treatments went well before leveling off, according to Alesi. How quickly he died after being diagnosed still came as a surprise, Fischetti said.

Leary is survived by his three brothers, four children and seven grandchildren.

Services will be held at Joseph G. Duffy Funeral Home (255 9th Street, Brooklyn) Wednesday from 7-9 p.m. and Thursday from 2-5 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. The funeral Mass is 9:30 a.m. Friday at St. Thomas More Church in Breezy Point.
