Tom coached CYO basketball and soccer, served as an assistant Scoutmaster with the Boy Scouts, and was a member of the Knights of Columbus. In Blue Bell, he was a member of St. Helena parish and a proud member of the Irish Society.

In recent years, he and Pat have enjoyed dancing with Rosemary Timoney’s Irish dancing group, attending the theater, and traveling with family and friends through the US and Europe.

Tom was preceded in death by his parents and brother Mattie. He is survived by his wife Pat, his children: Michael (Sue), Patricia, Sheila (Bob), Thomas (Delores), Brian, Stephen (Jacqueline), Robert (Bernadette) and Edward (Kristin), grandchildren (Ian, Brittany, Liam, Victor, Brian, Nicole, Jordan, Taylor, Bailey, Ryan, Christopher, Evan and Ciaran), as well as sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, nieces, and nephews.

JOBIT: Schiller , George H. ‘Guy’ [MC1958 RIP] on 2016-Feb-19



George H. “Guy” Schiller
1936 – 2016

East Lyme – George “Guy” H. Schiller died peacefully on Friday, Feb. 19, 2016, at Lawrence +Memorial Hospital with his loving family gathered around him.

Guy was born in New York City on Oct. 28, 1936, the son of George A. Schiller and Loretta (Hendrick) Schiller. After moving to New Rochelle, N.Y., in 1938, Guy attended Holy Family Grammar School, Archbishop Stepinac High School, and Manhattan College where in 1958, he received a bachelor of electrical engineering degree. He was an Eagle Scout and a member of the Order of the Arrow. Upon graduation from Manhattan, Guy started working for AT&T in White Plains, N.Y., in their management development program.

On June 20, 1959, he married his best friend and soulmate, Lucine M. Suarez, at Holy Family Church in New Rochelle.

Along with his wife, Lucine, he leaves behind six children and nine grandchildren, son, Guy and his wife, Carol, of Niantic and their children, Jillian and Joseph; daughters, Kathryn Steglitz of Trumbull and her daughter, Samantha, and Joanne Fasciolo and her husband, Adam, of Norwalk and their children, Alex and Emma; sons, Roy of Oneonta, N.Y.; Mark and his wife, Kathleen, of Frederick, Md. and their children, Griffin and Kristin; and Paul and his wife, Jeanne, of Mohegan Lake, N.Y. and their sons, Jack and Brian. He also leaves a sister, Dorothy Kelly and her husband, Tom, their children and his cousins.

His son-in-law, Andrew, husband of Kathryn, predeceased him.

During his 40 year career with AT&T, Guy had multiple assignments in sales, engineering, human resources and operations in Philadelphia, Wayne and Harrisburg, Pa., New York City and White Plains, N.Y., and New Haven. He attended graduate courses at RPI in Troy, N.Y., and The Summer School of Alcohol Studies at Rutgers University in New Jersey. While in engineering, he worked in Bell Labs on the initial broad band transcontinental network for high speed transmission of data on the testing of the Titan missile. After becoming district outside plant engineer for the Northeast area, he was responsible for all new cable installations including the shore landing of the trans-Atlantic cable at Greenhill, R.I.

Upon taking over the district manager’s job for human resources in the region, he initiated programs that led to their first Employee Assistance Program. It was during this time that he attended Iona College and received a master of science degree in pastoral counseling and was awarded the Brother Mark Egan Memorial Medal for being the most outstanding student in the graduating class. During his tenure in the human resource position, he developed seminars to help employees deal with change. The most widely given program was ADAPT, aimed at helping those who were dealing with change over which they had no control. In addition, he developed an educational seminar on the disease of alcoholism which was also pivotal in the change of many lives.

During the last 10 years of his career Guy was the operations manager for Connecticut, Rhode Island, and central Massachusetts. While in this assignment, he oversaw the conversion to the digital age of a number of switching machines in New Haven, Cheshire, Worchester, Bridgeport, and White Plains. He was the project manager for the engineering and installation of the digital radio system to Fishers Island, N.Y. from New London.

Guy was a lifelong Catholic and certified catechist. He was the co-founder of the folk group BASIC (Brothers and Sisters in Christ) which was devoted to spreading the gospel through music, not only at Holy Name of Jesus parish in New York but at ecumenical services as well. As an active member of the Cursillo movement since 1965, he served on numerous teams and was a member of its leadership group for many years. In addition, he served on teams for Teens Encounter Christ and Residents Encounter Christ, a retreat for prison inmates. Always involved in parish life, he was an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion at Holy Name of Jesus in Valhalla, N.Y. and at St. Matthias in East Lyme. He also prepared teens for the reception of the sacrament of confirmation in both parishes. In recent years, he facilitated the adult bible study at St. Matthias and at York Correctional Institution. He was a member of the board of directors of St. Vincent De Paul Place, serving as vice president. He chaired the building committee for St. Matthias Church and for Our Lady of the Assumption Chapel at St. Edmund’s Retreat on Enders Island. Guy served on the Attawan Beach Association Board of Governors as vice president and was president during the association’s 50th anniversary celebration.

Guy enjoyed woodworking and carving, golf, fishing, playing the guitar, and reading. He took special delight in making things for his children and grandchildren such as cradles, furniture and toys. He made pieces of furniture for St. Matthias and St. Edmund’s, most notably the confessional screen at St. Edmund’s, their processional cross and the credence table at St. Matthias.

The family wishes to thank Dr. Francis Mirecki, Dr. Stephen Lattanzi, Dr. Mihkel Haus and the team of nephrologists from Southeastern Nephrology Associates and the DaVita Dialysis Center. The family is extremely grateful to Dawn McDermott, RN and Marya Ursin of Hospice of Southeastern Connecticut, and to the marvelous RNs in the ICU at L+M, not only for their expert care of Guy, but for their ministrations to the family. The family especially thanks Dr. Donald Felitto who shepherded Guy and his family with professional acumen, grace filled care and tender compassion.
