JOBIT: McInerney, James S. Jr. [MC1960 RIP] 2017-Sep-16



James McInerney

James S. McInerney, Jr. of Norwalk and Old Lyme, Connecticut, beloved husband of Eileen McInerney for more than 55 years, passed away peacefully, while surrounded with his family, on Saturday, September 16, 2017.

Born in the Bronx, New York in the Country Club section on November 4, 1937, he was the son of the late James and Evelyn (Gerth) McInerney. Jim and his wife Eileen were proud and longtime residents in Norwalk before permanently moving to Old Lyme, CT in 2013. While Jim loved his life in Norwalk, he also enjoyed the peacefulness of sitting at Roger’s Lake along with his family and friends.

Jim graduated from All Hollows High School in 1955, earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Civil Engineering from Manhattan College in 1960 and later completed the Harvard University Advanced Management Program. After working as a civil engineer for the New York Transit Authority, Jim served as a general manager of the Second District Water Department in Norwalk. He joined Stamford Water Company in 1970 and continued moving onto jobs of increasing responsibility and was named President in 1977. While serving as SWC president in 1984, the company was acquired by Bridgeport Hydraulic Company (BHC) and Jim was named President and CEO. Jim brought BHC through the largest series of capital projects in the company’s 144-year history which resulted in five water filtration facilities – four of which feature a state of the art filtration technology.

He is a recipient of the Water Works State Leadership Award from the New England Water Works Association, and in June 2000 was voted a lifetime member of the AWWA. During his tenure at BHC, Jim received the Business New Haven Magazine “Corporate Citizen of the Year” honor and BHC was the first water utility in the northeast to clinch a statewide Small Organization Quality Award based on the Malcom Baldridge National Quality Award.

Jim also served on the boards of environmental organizations such as Housatonic Valley Association and Rivers Alliance.

Jim, also known to many as “Popeye”, was a great man. He was kind, gentle, loving and had a heart of gold. Family meant the world to Jim. He especially enjoyed the time he spent with his eight beloved grandchildren, which included attending their football, soccer, basketball, lacrosse, and softball games, piano and dance recitals, and their annual family vacations in Disney World.

Jim is survived by three loving children, James S. McInerney III and his wife Denise of Norwalk, CT, Noreen Ranelli of Old Lyme, CT, and Erin DiProspero and her husband, Mike of Madison, CT, and eight cherished grandchildren, Meghan Rose, James Stewart IV, and Patrick Joseph McInerney, Natalie Paige and Aidan Joseph Ranelli, Dane Michael, Declan Mac and Dillon Jag DiProspero and his loving sister, Evelyn Roman, of Old Lyme, and his niece Jennifer, and two nephews, Jay and Chris, and their families whom he loved deeply.Our family cannot express in words how grateful we are to everyone who cared for Jim with so much compassion during the last several weeks of his life, especially Joan Rode, Carol, and all the nurses and aides.

Funeral services will take place on Friday, September 22, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. in St. Matthew Church, 216 Scribner Avenue, Norwalk for a Mass of Christian Burial. Interment will be in St. John’s Cemetery, 223 Richards Avenue, Norwalk.

Message from Terry O’Connor

John, thanks for your note regarding my dad. He was one of those quiet gems from the old school. He would appreciate being remembered as you did. I think I recognize your name as the author of an unofficial alumni notes page of a decade or so ago. You worked downtown NYC. I graduated MC 1984 and live in Houston working for ExxonMobil. Side note…..my sister graduated from what was then Keene State College. Enjoy the beautiful New England days and nights. Regards…….Terry O’Connor

[JR: Appreciate the kind words. And, yes, I’ve been unofficially at this modest effort for a long time. Ever since my Compu$erve days. Hopefully, some one will pick it up when I can’t do it any more. Sorry about your Dad and we’re all praying for your family.]  

O’Connor, Terry [MC1984]

Message from Teri Donovan,

I don’t know who made the error but your condolence is showing up in the guestbook for William O’Connor. Bill died 27 March and your post is dated 23 March. That, and the fact that Bill did not attend Manhattan College leads me to believe you were directed to the incorrect book.

[JR: Looks like the LEGACY DOT COM site posted it in two places. Argh!]
