[JR: Thanks for the correction. I don’t know where my brain was when I was collecting this. Mike even told me. Argh! I guess I’m ready for the Old Age Home. Sorry.]  

Sheridan, Peter F. [MC1956 RIP]

[JR: When I get my mind locked in, it’s not easy to change. I even had him in my address book as ’56. Where did ’63 escape from? My profound apologies. Guess I should pack my undies for the OAH!]

JAMES DEBRAGGIO, 83 

LAKE WALES – James A. Debraggio died on December 23 at home after a lengthy and well-fought battle with cancer. 

Jim’s life was defined by faith and family. On Aug. 2, 1958, he married the love of his life, Jeanne Seaman. They had six children, 13 grandchildren and three great grandchildren, nearly all of whom gathered on Christmas to remember his life, tell stories and celebrate his love for them. 

Jim was born and raised in the Bronx, NY. He attended Cardinal Hayes HS and Manhattan College, where he earned his electronics engineering degree in 1956, was a member of Phi Rho Pi, ran on the cross country and track teams, and was a member of several IC4A championship relay teams. He was a CYO track coach when the family lived in Hauppauge, NY. 

After college, Jim was employed by the FAA and in private industry before working for the Department of the Navy in Mechanicsburg, PA, Norfolk, VA, and Charleston, SC.

He retired in 1998 and then moved to Bonita Springs, FL, before settling in Lake Wales, FL, where he enjoyed playing cards and golf. 

Selfless and fiercely independent, it seemed there wasn’t anything he could not repair, or at least attempt to fix. He especially loved sports cars and working on them, and his work as a basketball official when the family lived in Pennsylvania. He was a lifelong Yankees fan. Jim was a member of the Knights of Columbus and throughout his life he served as a lector, usher and Eucharistic Minister for the parishes where he and Jeanne lived. 

In addition to his wife of 59 years, Jim is survived by his children: Mike (Anne McKeegan and their four children); Mara Anderson (Steve and their three children); Mary Lisa Millbourn (Barry and their two children); Dennis; Chris (Karen Frame and their three children); and Janice Swilley (Kevin and their son). 

The family would like to thank the staff at Moffitt Cancer Center, Good Shepherd Hospice, and their many Lake Ashton friends who stopped by and offered encouragement. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Moffitt Cancer Center Adult Clinic. Mass of the Resurrection will be held at St. Matthews Catholic Church at 9am on Wednesday, January 3, 2018.

Pete served for many years as a member of the St. Margaret Parish Council, as well as on the Board of the Pearl River Nauraushaun Swim Club.

Predeceased by his beloved wife, Josephine (nee Biggins), Pete is survived by his devoted children; Peter T. Sheridan of Pearl River, NY, Thomas F. Sheridan (Vincent Walsh) of Washington, DC, Catherine Lawlor (John), of Little Rock, AR, Ann Sheridan of Manahawkin, NJ and Maureen Sheridan of Nyack, NY, and his sister, Ann Sheridan (Paul McAndrew) of Coopersburg, PA.

JOHN E. RUOFF 
1934 – 2017
Obituary 

GARDINER-John E. Ruoff died Wednesday, Nov. 22, 2017 at 83 years of age. His passing was attended by loved ones, and took place at Vassar Brothers Medical Center in Poughkeepsie.

John was born on Sept. 4, 1934, in Brooklyn, N.Y., to the late Eugen and Rosa Grosch Ruoff. He grew up in Woodside, Queens, playing stickball in the streets and graduating from LaSalle Academy and Manhattan College. He earned a Masters degree in Accounting from New York University.

Summers with his family were spent visiting his Uncle Emil in New Paltz, and working as a busboy in the Wildmere and Cliffhouse hotels on Lake Minnewaska. John married Margarete Hildebrandt on Dec. 16, 1967 at St. Joseph’s Church in New Paltz. John and Margarete, together with John’s parents, owned and operated the Mountain Brauhaus Restaurant in Gardiner for over 40 years. They raised four children together, and eventually entrusted the restaurant to their two youngest, who now run it with their spouses. John and Margarete remained an integral part of the business, helping daily in many ways, big and small.

John and Margarete were enjoying their 50th year of marriage at the time of John’s passing. The two felt that they had been blessed with living a real-life love story. John was always described by his wife as ‘a rare and special man’.

John served in the United States Army from 1952 to 1954, and was a member of the Gardiner Fire Department. John was also a founding member of the Nut-Hikers, a select group who have hiked and dined every Wednesday, locally and beyond, for over 20 years.

John provided a steady moral compass, a good sense of humor and a patient ear for his family’s concerns. He was a man who loved his family and his faith. He had a great appreciation for the natural world, attentive to the myriad details of the world around him. John enjoyed taking walks with his wife, spending time with his grandchildren and splitting his own firewood, a skill he taught his grandson, Oliver, this past summer.

In addition to his wife, Margarete, John is survived by two daughters and sons-in-law, Karin and Dennis Skalla of Saugerties, N.Y. and Ilka and Kevin Casey of Gardiner, N.Y.; son, Eugene Ruoff of Gardiner, N.Y., and son and daughter-in-law, Mark and Veronica Ruoff of Gardiner, N.Y. He was the beloved grandfather of Oliver, Piper and Morgan Casey of Gardiner, Silvia Snow Ruoff of Gardiner, and step-grandson Biko Skalla of Saugerties. In addition to his parents, John is predeceased by his brother, Heinz Ruoff, who passed away in 2007, and sister-in-law Linda Ruoff, who passed away in 2016.

Relatives and friends may call on Monday, Nov. 27, 2017, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Copeland Funeral Home, Inc., 162 South Putt Corners Road, New Paltz, N.Y. A Mass in John Ruoff’s honor will be celebrated at St. Joseph’s Church, 34 South Chestnut Street, New Paltz, Tuesday, Nov. 28, 2017 at 10 a.m. Donations in memory of John Ruoff may be made to the Gardiner Fire Department Rescue Squad, P.O.
