James Ducey

Endwell – James Ducey of Endwell NY left this world peacefully on Saturday, September 7, 2019 after a 7 year battle against Alzheimer’s disease.

He is predeceased by his grandson Liam. He is survived by the love of his life, wife Judy of 54 years, and his 4 children Anne (Jonathan), Ellen (Rob), John (Christine) and Mary (Ryan) and his 10 grandchildren Mason, Emma, RJ, Reese, Julia, Leah, Cash, Jack, Carleigh, and Rachael.

Family was his pride and joy and he lived for moments spent together with kids and grandchildren. Jim was born on October 7, 1936 in Haverstraw, NY. He graduated at 15 from Haverstraw High School and attended Peddie Preparatory School in Hightstown, New Jersey before heading off to earn his many degrees. He received a BS in mechanical engineering from Manhattan College; a MS in mechanical engineering from Yale University; and a MS in engineering administration and PhD in computer science from Syracuse University.

He instilled in his children and grandchildren the importance of learning, teamwork, athletics, loyalty, friendship and love of God. He was a gifted athlete, enjoying football, basketball, and baseball when he was young and tennis and softball throughout his life. Though his demeanor could often be intimidating, he won over many when they experienced the “Jim Ducey line of questioning” to get to know them.

He had his first career at IBM where he worked for 30 years and retired as a Senior Engineer/Manager. At work, he was a mentor to many since he took joy in fueling other people’s success.

His children all attended Broome County Catholic schools. He was instrumental in helping keep these schools open, and athletic programs active, as a key member of the Finance and Planning Committee.

In 1993 he began his second career at Seton Catholic Central as a physics teacher. He prepared for this by spending a summer attending a course at Cornell University learning the curricular and resource requirements to bring AP Physics to Seton. He was known for his dedication to each student’s success which included extensive lesson planning. He stayed up late revising class notes and enlisted “secretary” Judy to make early morning copies for every student on the full size copier he kept in the living room. He inspired his students and played a key role in helping many select career paths and colleges.

His faith was central in his life — praying the rosary on car trips, daily mass, and nightly prayer with Judy. In his late 70s Alzheimers began to rob him of his brilliant mind and eventually even his memories of family and lifelong friends.

A highlight during this difficult time was Jim’s experience in 2019 at Yesteryears Day Program for Adults in Endwell. We are grateful beyond words not only for the respite for Judy but for the staff’s warm, kind, respectful treatment of Jim. Each visit started with a heartfelt welcome leading in to much-needed social engagement and assisted activity that greatly improved Jim’s quality of life. Judy would like to also thank the staff in the Star Unit of JGT Nursing home for their compassionate care during Jim’s brief stay with them.

A Funeral Mass will be offered at the Church of the Holy Family, 3600 Phyllis Street, Endwell, Saturday, September 21, 2019 at 10 a.m. The family will receive friends at the J.A. McCormack Sons Funeral Home, 141 Main Street, Binghamton, Friday, September 20, 2019 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please consider expressions of sympathy in Jim’s memory to Seton Catholic Central High School, 70 Seminary Avenue, Binghamton, NY 13905 (csbcsaints.org), the Cure Alzheimer’s Fund (curealz.org) or to Mercy House of the Southern Tier, 212 N. McKinley Avenue, Endicott, NY 13760.

Raymond Corbett
1930 – 2018 

Tinton Falls – Raymond P. Corbett, 88, of Tinton Falls, formerly Hazlet, NJ, son of Thomas Corbett and Ellen Tighe Corbett, sadly passed away on Wednesday, July 4, 2018. Born on March 15, 1930 in Glasgow, Scotland. Moved to Ireland until he emigrated to the US. They settled in the Bronx. He attended Cardinal Hayes HS and was a proud graduate of Manhattan College. It was in the Bronx that he met and married in 1955 the love of his life, Ann “Nancy” Farley, who preceded him to heaven five years ago. The fireworks in heaven were her doing to welcome him home. He proudly served four years in the Air Force, one year in Germany, one year in Wyoming and two years working for the Pentagon in Washington, DC. Ray and Nancy moved their young family to Hazlet, NJ, where he lived happily until he moved to the Seabrook community, Tinton Falls, a year ago. 

Ray was a faithful and longtime parishioner of the Holy Family parish, Union Beach, helping with numerous fundraisers over the years, including singing and dancing in shows, and ultimately founding the St Vincent de Paul Society and thrift shop, a charitable entity he served for nearly 40 years, even after his move to Seabrook. In 1988, because of his great works, he was awarded the Monmouth County Federation of the Holy Name Societies Man-of-the-Year. 

He was a devoted family man. No one was more important than his two sons Ray Jr. (Cathy), Mahwah; Tommy (Laura), Monmouth Beach; and his three daughters Shevaun (Steve) Selvin, Manhattan; Tracey (Tim) Riordan, Bernardsville; and Jeanne (Rich) Korchak, Fair Haven. Slightly more doted upon were his grandchildren: Michael, Scott and Keith Selvin, Matthew Keppler, Jack and Jesse Riordan, Kelley, Tommy and Courtney Corbett and Kate and Liam Korchak. He was a wonderful brother to his sister Eileen (Bob) Brittain, Hardy, VA. Besides Nancy and his parents, he was preceded in death by his sister Dolores. He was a fun-loving uncle to his many nieces and nephews. And because he always treated his friends like family, his life family went beyond the bonds of blood, and spanned many generations. He was an avid Met and Giant fan, always rooting them on through good and bad seasons. His friends and family will remember him best as a great man, great father, great uncle and great friend. He set the example of what it is to be a strong, kind person, of faith and integrity.

Visitation will be held at the Shore Point Funeral Home, 3269 NJ-35, Hazlet, NJ on Monday, July 9, 2018 from 3-8 PM. A funeral mass to celebrate his life will be held on Tuesday, July 10, 2018 at 11:00 AM at Holy Family Roman Catholic Church, 727 NJ-36, Union Beach, NJ. In lieu of flowers, donations in Ray’s memory may be made to the St. Vincent de Paul Society, at Holy Family Roman Catholic Church, 727 NJ-36, Union Beach, NJ 07735.
