And, her patient, Tommy McGuire, has.

“Even when he encountered numerous medical setbacks, such as a bad case of pneumonia that landed him back to acute care, Tommy returned back to us at Helen Hayes with maturity, determination and a sense of humor that had everyone rooting for him,” she said.

McGuire, a 2011 graduate of Clarkstown South High School and former star athlete, was injured after an accident in a swimming pool. His accident came only a few weeks after he graduated from Manhattan College and began his search for a job.

Over the last year, the community has rallied around the McGuire family to find ways to help with his medical costs.

After accepting his Medal of Independence — an award for patients who have overcome a catastrophic, neurological injury and require extensive rehabilitation — the Congers resident thanked everyone for their support.

McGuire, who was discharged in November 2016 and now attends outpatient physical therapy, promised to remain committed.

“I’m going to continue to work harder to improve,” he said.

Seybold is also a member of Collingswood and Manhattan’s athletic hall of fames. She sits at No. 9 on the Jaspers’ all-time scoring list with 1,217 points.

JOBIT: McInerney, James S. Jr. [MC1960 RIP] 2017-Sep-16



James McInerney

James S. McInerney, Jr. of Norwalk and Old Lyme, Connecticut, beloved husband of Eileen McInerney for more than 55 years, passed away peacefully, while surrounded with his family, on Saturday, September 16, 2017.

Born in the Bronx, New York in the Country Club section on November 4, 1937, he was the son of the late James and Evelyn (Gerth) McInerney. Jim and his wife Eileen were proud and longtime residents in Norwalk before permanently moving to Old Lyme, CT in 2013. While Jim loved his life in Norwalk, he also enjoyed the peacefulness of sitting at Roger’s Lake along with his family and friends.

Jim graduated from All Hollows High School in 1955, earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Civil Engineering from Manhattan College in 1960 and later completed the Harvard University Advanced Management Program. After working as a civil engineer for the New York Transit Authority, Jim served as a general manager of the Second District Water Department in Norwalk. He joined Stamford Water Company in 1970 and continued moving onto jobs of increasing responsibility and was named President in 1977. While serving as SWC president in 1984, the company was acquired by Bridgeport Hydraulic Company (BHC) and Jim was named President and CEO. Jim brought BHC through the largest series of capital projects in the company’s 144-year history which resulted in five water filtration facilities – four of which feature a state of the art filtration technology.

He is a recipient of the Water Works State Leadership Award from the New England Water Works Association, and in June 2000 was voted a lifetime member of the AWWA. During his tenure at BHC, Jim received the Business New Haven Magazine “Corporate Citizen of the Year” honor and BHC was the first water utility in the northeast to clinch a statewide Small Organization Quality Award based on the Malcom Baldridge National Quality Award.

Jim also served on the boards of environmental organizations such as Housatonic Valley Association and Rivers Alliance.

Jim, also known to many as “Popeye”, was a great man. He was kind, gentle, loving and had a heart of gold. Family meant the world to Jim. He especially enjoyed the time he spent with his eight beloved grandchildren, which included attending their football, soccer, basketball, lacrosse, and softball games, piano and dance recitals, and their annual family vacations in Disney World.

Jim is survived by three loving children, James S. McInerney III and his wife Denise of Norwalk, CT, Noreen Ranelli of Old Lyme, CT, and Erin DiProspero and her husband, Mike of Madison, CT, and eight cherished grandchildren, Meghan Rose, James Stewart IV, and Patrick Joseph McInerney, Natalie Paige and Aidan Joseph Ranelli, Dane Michael, Declan Mac and Dillon Jag DiProspero and his loving sister, Evelyn Roman, of Old Lyme, and his niece Jennifer, and two nephews, Jay and Chris, and their families whom he loved deeply.Our family cannot express in words how grateful we are to everyone who cared for Jim with so much compassion during the last several weeks of his life, especially Joan Rode, Carol, and all the nurses and aides.

Funeral services will take place on Friday, September 22, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. in St. Matthew Church, 216 Scribner Avenue, Norwalk for a Mass of Christian Burial. Interment will be in St. John’s Cemetery, 223 Richards Avenue, Norwalk.
