JFOUND: Kelly, Robert M. Jr. [MC1967] Senior Warden @ Christ Church Shrewsbury



Who is Bob Kelly?

Well, I am the incoming Senior Warden (duh!) but I want to tell you a little about myself.

I was born and reared in New Your City just after the end of WWII. My family and I lived in Washington Heights (way before Lin Manuel Miranda). My father was a longshoreman (though he looked like a banker) and my mother was a legal secretary (though she looked to me like a mom). I have a brother six years my junior who lives in Arizona (go figure). I attended Regis High School (Jesuit), Manhattan College (CBA brothers), and Stanford University (sui generis). I received Electrical Engineering degrees from the latter institutions. I joined Bell Laboratories and worked there and at the larger AT&T for 31 years be fore embarking on an encore career teaching and researching at Monmouth University and Stevens Institute of Technology.

As many of you know my beloved wife Annemarie passed away in August 2012. My daughter, Kristen, lives, along with her husband Scott (Kormann), with me (bittersweet). My Shrewsbury home now also has 5 bunnies and 1 cat.

As you can surmise, I was raised a Roman Catholic – altar boy (when you had to pay dues to be one!), etc., etc. After falling away from the RC church, I became an Episcopalian in the mid – 1970s partly to provide my daughter with religious education of a thoughtful, yet traditional, so that she could reject it later on (and read James Joyce and have a chance to understand it).

I joined Christ Church Shrewsbury in 1979 and have been a member since. I served in the choir for 35 years. I became more active in parish affairs beginning with the search committees to find our new, and current Rector. Subsequently, I chaired the committee that selected our new (and current) organist / choirmaster, was senior and junior warden, vestry member, parish historian, Graveyard Commission Chair, grant writer, and project manager of numerous grant projects.

I very much look forward to serving the parish for this term as senior warden and would like to hear from you about your view of the parish and what it does well and what it can improve upon. Please buttonhole me at coffee hour or give me a call or drop me an e – mail. (No texts!)

Robert M. Kelly, Jr.

P.S. The AMDG is a little research opportunity

JNEWS: Trigo, Robert J.[MC1967] Middletown Sports HoF



Middletown Sports Hall of Fame: Four teams, 11 individuals to be inducted
By Paul Augeri Published 7:25 pm EST, Tuesday, January 22, 2019

*** begin quote ***


Trigo was a standout hurdler at Cardinal Hayes (1958-62) in the Bronx. As a senior in ’62, he established a New York Catholic High School A.A. outdoor record in 1962 with a time of 19.2 seconds in the 180-yard low hurdles.

He earned an athletic scholarship to Manhattan College and won the 400-meter hurdles at Randall’s Island as a freshman. He was honored as Most Improved Athlete as a junior. In his senior season, when the Jaspers won the Metropolitan Championship, Trigo competed in the high and intermediate hurdles and the 200 meters, and was the lead off runner in the mile relay.

In 1989, Trigo re-entered the field of competition, running in meets along the East Coast on the U.S. Masters circuit. He won silver in the 400 hurdles at the national championship meet in San Diego, and two weeks later he took home bronze in the world championship meet in Eugene, Ore.

Trigo will join his daughter, Maureen, who was inducted in 2007 and again in 2017 as a member of Mercy’s 1994 championship softball team.

JFOUND: Tuohy, John Jr. [MC1967] urges Maine to exploit nuclear power



Maine needs the good-paying jobs nuclear energy provides

Mainers should develop a strategy to capitalize on our assets and determine how they can be used to stimulate the state’s economy and generate good-paying jobs. I believe nuclear energy can be an important part of that strategy.

JNEWS: Leary, Tim [MC1967] St. Francis Prep boys’ basketball coach retires



Lasting legacy for Leary: Prep coach honored at last home game
By Laura Amato

*** begin quote ***

Tim Leary didn’t always want to be a teacher. He never really planned on being a coach either. More than 40 years after he became both, Leary can’t quite imagine anything else.

The longtime St. Francis Prep boys’ basketball coach, retiring after 43 years on the sidelines, was honored at the Terriers’ final home game of the season Sunday afternoon as former players and students packed the gym to celebrate his unexpected and incredibly successful career.

“I was going to be a cop like everybody else in my family. I had taken the test and I was waiting to get on the job out of school,” Leary said. “I just got married out of college and I needed a job, so while I was waiting I took to teaching. And I was like ‘this is great.’ I’ll be on the beach during the summer and I never really looked back after that.”

Leary – a 1963 Prep grad – was a star on the hardwood before he started pacing the sidelines. He played both basketball and baseball for the Terriers and went on to compete at Manhattan College, leading the Jaspers to two NIT appearances.

Had 10 priests celebrating Funeral Mass for a 1/2 full 1200 capacity, La Purisima church. Family is big in size and numbers. Fond memories from oldest daughter’s eulogy with “current events” by hospital chaplain’s homily.
Rosary @ packed wake was led by our 90 yr retired Marine Deacon. About a dozen attendees offered eulogies of family, church, work, hospital, Charity & military experiences with Charlie.
It was a full life
