John E. FitzGibbons
Obituary

John Edward Timotheus FitzGibbons, known as “Jack” to family and friends, of East 7th Street in Oswego, passed away peacefully at the age of 92 on Tuesday, with loved ones by his side.

Jack lived a very rich and fulfilling life. He was born on May 6, 1924 in Oswego, and was the eldest of three children raised by George and Ellen FitzGibbons. His beloved sisters, Julie Sullivan and Mary Mimi Conway, both preceded him in death.

Jack graduated from St. Paul’s Academy and Oswego High School before enlisting in WWII. As a member of the armed forces serving in the field artillery, he helped to liberate Europe. Upon his return from war, Jack attended Manhattan College, graduating as a proud Jasper in 1951. After graduation, Jack returned to Oswego to work alongside his father at FitzGibbons Real Estate. In 1953, Jack found that “happiness lies right under your eyes, back in your own backyard” when he married fellow Oswegonian Joan Galvin. They shared 56 happy years of marriage prior to Joan’s death in 2009. Together, with Joan’s support and commitment to excellence, they raised and educated seven children who are their ardent admirers.

Jack loved and served Oswego in many ways. He was a two-term Mayor of Oswego from 1976-1980 and served as Executive Director of the Port of Oswego Authority for more than a decade. He was also a long-time proprietor of FitzGibbons Insurance and Real Estate, the family business, now managed by his son.

Jack was instrumental in establishing Oswego’s first public housing development, Hamilton Homes and aided in the city’s acquisition of the Naval Militia (McCrobie) Building. He secured The Nash, the living WWII museum ship that sits in the Harbor, as well as oversaw the restoration of Oswego City Hall. He also initiated planning for the Wright’s Landing Development.

He was also appointed a Charter Commission which successfully revised and modernized the Oswego City Charter, changing the term of Mayor from 2 to 4 years, strengthening the powers of the Mayor and creating a new Department of Personnel.

Jack served on many committees and boards including the County Solid Waste Board, Oswego County Board of Realtors, Central New York Girl Scouts, Catholic Charities, and the Oswego County, to name a few.

He held long-time memberships in the Oswego Elks, The Ancient Order of Hibernians, and was an honorary member of the Oswego Rotary.

Jack is survived by his seven children, Jean (Rick Sabatini), John (Tara Seaman), Joan (Chris Dain), Ellen (Joe McCloskey), Jerome (Jennifer Dehm), Mary (Kevin Stack), and Kathleen (Kevin Hunt). He is loved by thirteen grandchildren: Ben, Jean, George, Mary Margaret, Sean, Mary, Elizabeth, Charlotte, Margaret, James, Thomas, Padraig, and Siobhan; and one great grandchild, Lillian. His extended family includes his in-laws, many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Jack Fitzgibbons is revered and loved not only for public service, but being a family man in a sense that few can claim. He had both the heart of a lion, and the soul of a lamb. He was a faithful husband, father, brother, uncle and friend. The lilt of Irish laughter, a favorite tune, and a poet’s wit were always readily shared. He was a politician and civil servant who served with integrity and character. His legacy will long out-live him. His adoring family carries forward his name and memory.

A Celebration of Life and Mass will take place at 10:30am Saturday, February 11th, at St. Paul’s Church in Oswego. Burial will be in St. Paul’s Cemetery. Calling hours will be held Friday, February 10th, from 4 to 8pm at the Dain-Cullinan Funeral Home, 112 East Second Street in Oswego.

The family requests donations to be sent to the St. Luke John Foster Burden Foundation, 299 E. River Road, Oswego NY 13126.

Date of Death: February 7, 2017

John Murray
1928 – 2016
Obituary 

John Philip Murray, 87, died on November 14, 2016.

A resident of Albuquerque since 1959, the Sanitary Engineer, native to Pelham Bay, the Bronx, was fond of billing himself as a “cultural missionary”. John, the younger son of Rose Anne (neeMcAdam) and Philip Murray of County Monaghan, Ireland and New York City was born in NYC on December 7, 1928. He graduated from All Hallows H.S., up the hill from Yankee Stadium. He received a BCE degree from Manhattan College in 1951 and a MSCE degree from Purdue University in 1952. He was a doctoral candidate of UNM circa 1970.

He married Edith Bellinger in Oakland, CA on Groundhog Day 1957. Their union was blessed with four daughters: Ann, Ruth, Catherine and Margaret, all born in Albuquerque.

While in active practice, he was a Registered Professional Engineer in N.M. and a Diplomate of the American Academy of Environmental Engineers. Over half his Federal Service was with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers from which he retired in 1986.

While with the Albuquerque District, he acted as a Special Master for the N.M. District Court on the phase out of the 2nd St. Sewage Treatment Plant and was Project Manager for AGUA, the Albuquerque Greater Urban Area Water Resources Study, which served as precursor for subsequent studies. He then served as an engineer with the Albuquerque Public Works Department from 1986 through 2001. He also served as a Sanitary Engineer Officer in the USAF (1950s) and the USPHS (1960s). One of his Air Force assignments was with the Fifth Epidemiological Flight in Korea. Another was with the Surgeon’s Office, HQ, WADF, Hamilton AFB, CA. With PHS, he was with the Indian Health Service here and was involved in the management of the PL86-121 (Sanitation Facilities Act) program.

He was active in the Irish-American Society and was a member of The Shrine of St. Bernadette Roman Catholic Community.

He is survived by his daughters and families, Dr. Ann Siefert and husband Capt. John Siefert USN(MC)ret. and children Christine, Kevin, Catherine Rose, Eric, Rachel and Matthew of Coronado, CA; Ruth Murray of CO, Catherine Juveland and husband Olaf and daughter, Ann Violet; Margaret Mounho and husband John and children Sarah and Michael, all of Albuquerque. He is survived also by his sister-in-law Joan Murray of Central Islip, Long Island, her children: Diane, Lisa and Brian; first cousin, Eamon McAdam of Ireland; and a number of first and second cousins of Long Island, NY.

He is preceded in death by his older brother James Philip Murray. He was forever grateful for all the fine people who graced his life.

ROBERT DONAHUE
Obituary

Robert Michael Donahue, 88

Law partner, recreational athlete and ‘great wit full of strong opinions’

Robert Michael Donahue passed peacefully at his home in St. George, Staten Island, N.Y., on Wednesday, Sept. 29, 2016; he was 88.

Born in Brooklyn in 1928, Bob attended Bishop Laughlin High School and later graduated from Manhattan College. After college, Bob served in the Korean War and took advantage of the G.I. Bill to graduate from Brooklyn Law School in 1956.Along with Joe Holzka and Dick Kuhn, he formed Holzka, Donahue and Kuhn, a St. George-based law firm; they were later to add Joan Nerlino-Caddell as a partner to their firm.

Bob practiced law on Staten Island for over 45 years and was an avid supporter of the Noble Maritime Collection and Greenbelt Conservancy and other various civic organizations on Staten Island.

As a resident of West Brighton, Bob and his wife, Bernadette, raised five children, Maura, Robert, Claire, Elizabeth and Neil. In December 2014, Bob became a proud grandfather to his grandson, Marcus. In 1996, five years after the sudden passing of Bernadette, Bob found love again with Dorothy Myhre and is survived by her as well as three stepsons, Leif, Erik and Karl, and six step grandchildren.

He is also survived by his older sister, Alice Callahan, and younger sister, Margaret Reydel, as well as numerous nephews and nieces.

A fitness pioneer, Bob gave up smoking and started running after a life-threatening cardiac event in his early 40. In the late 1960s, it was such an uncommon sight to see someone jogging in Clove Lakes Park that he was routinely stopped by strangers and police asking him, “Why are you running, is anything wrong?” In 1978, in honor of successfully making it to age 50, he rode from New York City to Montauk, N.Y., in one day. He would repeat this feat numerous times throughout his life as well as undertake a number of bicycle trips in Europe.

In addition to biking, Bob enjoyed sailing, swimming, skiing, cooking and telling stories. Though a stickler for accurate details in his law practice, Bob never let facts get in the way of telling a good story. Always a great wit and brimming with strong opinions, he spent his later years a devoted fan of Rachel Maddow.

Bob will be missed by family and friends. Services will be held at the Harmon Funeral Home on Saturday, Oct. 1, from 7 to 9 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 2, from 3 to 5 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, please forward any donations to the Visiting Nurses Service of New York Hospice and Palliative Care, email: http://www.vnsny.org/community/support-vnsny/donate/direct-your-donation/ or by mail: VNSNY-Hospice, Attention: Stephanie Steele, 4th Floor, 1250 Broadway, N.Y., N.Y. 10001.Harmon Funeral Home571 Forest Ave.Staten Island, N.Y. 10310(718) 442-5056
