John Conheeney

Saddle River – On October 8th 2018, John Conheeney, age 89, passed away peacefully while surrounded by his family. John was the beloved son of the late Thomas and Agnes Conheeney, and brother of the late Rita Conheeney. He was predeceased by his wife of 45 years, Jean Conheeney.

John is survived by his beloved wife of 22 years, Mary Higgins Clark, his children and their spouses, John and Debbie Conheeney, Barbara Conheeney, Patricia Conheeney and Michelle DeWitt, Nancy and David Tarleton; and his devoted grandchildren, Lauren, Megan, Kelly, Johnny, and the late Michael Conheeney, Robert Lanzara and his fiancée Rosie DeRosa, and the late Ashley Lanzara; and Oliver Conheeney, and David, Courtney, Thomas, and Liam Tarleton. Also survived by his great granddaughter Sienna Lanzara and by Rosie’s daughter, Juliana Holmes. John is also survived by his dear stepchildren and spouses, Marilyn Clark, Warren and Sharon Clark, David Clark, Carol Clark, and Patricia Clark, and by his step grandchildren and their spouses, Elizabeth Clark and Lauren Pomerantz, Andrew and Taylor Clark, Courtney and James Morrison, David Clark, Justin Clark, and Jerry Derenzo, and his step great grandson Will Clark. 

John graduated from St. Cecilia’s High School in Englewood, NJ where he proudly played football under Coach Vince Lombardi. He graduated from Manhattan College and received an MBA from Tulane University. John was the retired CEO and Chairman of Merrill Lynch Futures. During his 35 years there, he helped form the Futures Industry Association (FIA). He was instrumental in the formation of the National Futures Association (NFA) where he served as chairman from 1990 to 1994. From 1996 to 2005, John served on the board of the New York Mercantile Exchange as a public director. Earlier in his career, he was a board member of the Chicago Board of Trade, Chicago Mercantile Exchange, and the NY Commodities Exchange. 

John met Mary on St. Patrick’s Day in 1996 and both of them knew right away that they were always going to be together. They married a few months later. John took enormous pride in Mary’s achievements as an author and loved accompanying her on book tours across the country and abroad. Mary expressed her gratitude and deep love for John as her “spouse extraordinaire” in the dedications of every one of her books since they met. They were inseparable and enjoyed their large combined families in Saddle River, Spring Lake and Cape Cod. They were also faithful Giants football fans and attended many home games as guests of the Mara family. John was a devoted father and grandfather and always cared deeply about everything they did. He took great joy in participating in the lives of his grandchildren. He attended all of their school and sporting events, and could be seen regularly having breakfast with them at the Daily Treat in Ridgewood. To his colleagues, he was a gentle giant, and to all of those who knew and loved him, he was a man of great warmth, generosity, wit and dignity. He was greatly loved and forever will be missed. 

Arrangements through the Becker Funeral Home in Westwood, NJ. Hours of visitation are 3-9 pm, on Thursday, October 11th. Funeral Mass at St. Gabriel’s Church in Saddle River on Friday at 11 am. Interment following the Mass at Gate of Heaven Cemetery, in Hawthorne, New York.

ROBERT A. CHECOLA
August 25, 1928 – June 4, 2018
Warwick, NY

Robert A. Checola of Warwick, NY (formerly of Yorktown Heights) passed away peacefully on June 4, 2018 with his family by his side.

Born in Chicago, IL on August 25, 1928 to parents Anthony and Helen (McNicholas) Checola.

Robert, who was known as “Chic” to those who knew him, was a 1946 graduate of Bishop Loughlin Memorial HS in Brooklyn, NY where he discovered his love and talent in track and field. It was there that he was the National 1-mile Champion in ’46, and was part of the 2 mile Penn Relay Championship team in 1944-46. He was a 1950 graduate of Manhattan College where he continued to excel in both athletics and academics. He was honored with membership in the Pen and Sword Society. In 2000, he was inducted into the Bishop Loughlin High School Hall of Fame for excellence in track and field sports.

Robert joined the U. S. Marines during the Korean War and proudly served with the rank of First Lieutenant and later served as Captain in the Reserves.

Chic modeled in the ’50s, and one could stumble upon his photo while browsing through Life Magazine or walking through Grand Central Station where a billboard of him hung.

He later began a career in business and was the Vice President of Buddy L Toys and an Independent Sales Rep.

Robert was married to the late Kathleen A. O’Donnell. Chic and Kathleen enjoyed 58 beautiful and exciting years of marriage together full of family and travel. He continued his travels even after the passing of Kathleen. He recently enjoyed spring break in Cancun!

Robert loved his wife, his friends, and his family, but maybe most of all, a good game of golf!

He was loved by many and will be missed by all who knew him.

Robert is survived by his son, Robert T. Checola and his spouse, Carlos Rodriguez of Kew Gardens, NY; four daughters, Patricia Godfrey and husband, Charles of Shrewsbury, MA, Susan Mastromatteo of Warwick, NY, Linda Checola of Worcester, MA and Karen McDonald and husband, Edward of Arlington, MA; 13 grandchildren: Tommy, Amy, Jackie, MaryAnne, Nicole, Katherine, Kristin, Caroline, Chris, Eddie, Casey, Erin and James; eight great-grandchildren; sister, Joan Higgins and her husband, Robert of East Northport, NY; brother-in-law, Thomas O’Donnell of South Carolina; and several nieces and nephews.

Visitation will be Thursday, June 7 from 4 to 8 p.m. at Lazear-Smith & Vander Plaat Memorial Home, 17 Oakland Avenue, Warwick, NY. A Funeral Mass will be on Friday, June 8 at 10:30 a.m. at St. Stephens RC Church, 75 Sanfordville Road, Warwick.

Herbert Francis Hafenmaier
1925-2018

Herbert Francis Hafenmaier passed away on Sunday, April 22, 2018, surrounded by his immediate family.

He was the only child of Balthasar and Johanna Jung Hafenmaier born on the 12th of June, 1925, in New York City, New York. He spent his youth in Manhattan and then enlisted in the United States Navy, joining the greatest generation as a Radarman Second Class USN, aboard the destroyer escort U.S.S. Leslie L. B. Knox, throughout the south pacific. Upon his honorable naval discharge he was one of the many veterans who gravitated to the educational benefits offered by the government and was accepted at Manhattan College where he graduated with honors with a Bachelor in Electrical Engineering degree, furthering his education at Columbia University with an MSEE, Rutgers University Labor Relations Program and Harvard Business School Marketing Management Program.

He began his amazingly diverse career with International Telephone and Telegraph (ITT) as a Senior Engineer in NAVAIDS, where he designed ILS (instrument landing systems) and traveled to air force bases around the country to instruct personnel on their operation, (during which time he favored Texas locations, and became a reborn Texan, adopting a Stetson hat, Lucchese boots and bolo tie as his preferred dress). His outstanding field work recognized, he was transferred to ITT Federal Electric Corporation in Paramus New Jersey as an Engineering Administrator.

Involved in the operation and maintenance of the Distance Early Warning (DEWLINE) and White Alice defense systems, he spent extensive periods of time in the arctic. It was during this time he met the Administrative Assistant to the Director of Engineering, Catherine (Kay) Daleo, and discovered opposites really do attract, and after a brief engagement they were married. He was then moved to the state of Washington as Engineering Manager for the TITAN Facility, overseeing the silo missile installations.

Following his return to the east coast, and fluent in the German language, he became Project Manager for ITT U.S. NATO Communications Project, from Germany to Italy until completion. In 1966 he was then named Project Director of Logistics and Technical Information Support Services and an Apollo Member at The Manned Spacecraft Center, Houston, where he established his first Texas home in the small village of Friendswood. In 1973 he left Friendswood to assume the Project Manager of Instrumentation Support Services position at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. While in Florida, he was appointed Chairman of The United Way in Brevard County and also sponsored and was active with the Junior Achievement student group.

During this time, he was visited by an Executive of the American Sterilizer Corporation, a leader in the hospital service industry, to consider leaving government service to assume the management of their service company. Always ready for new challenges, and after visiting their Erie Pennsylvania offices, he accepted their offer and began an illustrious career in the medical health field which included federal health care legislation and pioneering the use of personal computers. He also initiated an Associate Degree program in biotechnology at Edinboro State University. His experience with global affiliations played a large part in company expansion. After AMSCO was bought by The Steris Corporation he remained until his retirement in 1988 as Vice President of Service. He left Pennsylvania in 1992 and once again returned to Friendswood to establish what he referred to as his final frontier. With education always at the forefront, The Herbert F and Catherine C Hafenmaier School was established at Mercyhurst University, Erie Pennsylvania in 1995. His affiliations include Institute of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, National Association of Service Managers, American Institute of Electrical Engineers, St Vincent Hospital Board of Corporators and American Association for Medical Instrumentation.

Herbert is survived by his wife of 59 years, Catherine (Kay), their three daughters Lisa Geronimo, Lynda (Hebert) Hafenmaier, Leslie Armstrong and husband David, son, Erich Hafenmaier and wife Dr Ann Marie Prazak. Grandsons Justin Geronimo, Michael Geronimo and wife Brooke, Matthew Geronimo and wife, Brittany, and granddaughter Julia (Geronimo) Bordelon and husband Mark. Granddaughters Christi Hebert and Courtney (Hebert) Wooldridge and husband Trent, and grandson, Dylan Hebert. Grandson David, and granddaughter Johanna Armstrong. Great grandchildren Emma Geronimo, Lucy Wooldridge, Oliver and Elliott Bordelon.
