Richard (“Dick”) Whiteside
1947 – 2019 Obituary 

Whiteside, Richard (“Dick”) 71, of Glen Allen, Virginia passed away peacefully surrounded by many family members on March 5, 2019 after sustaining injuries in a car accident.

Dick is survived by his loving wife of forty-six years, Kathleen, his daughters Megan Whiteside and Elizabeth Whiteside (Nicolai Shuman), his three granddaughters Mia Vernon, Grant Shuman and Mathilde Shuman and many in-laws, aunts, nieces, nephews and cousins.

He was born on June 9, 1947 in Pawtucket, R.I., son of the late Edward Jefferson Whiteside and the late Doris (Cardin) Whiteside. He was predeceased by his brother Edward Whiteside and his sister Doreen Whiteside.

A lifelong learner, Dick graduated from St. Raphael Academy in Pawtucket, R.I. He earned a B.A. from Manhattan College and holds two master’s degrees from The Johns Hopkins University. His Doctor of Philosophy degree in Educational Leadership was conferred by the University of Connecticut.

Throughout his career, Dick worked at various higher education institutions including The Johns Hopkins University, The University of Hartford and Tulane University, before transitioning to consulting work that he did with Royall & Company and EAB.

He put these skills to use professionally by tirelessly dedicating himself to helping colleges and universities manage their enrollments and strengthen their brands. He mentored countless colleagues, family and friends.

Dick cherished his family, especially his three granddaughters, to whom he will always be their beloved “Papa.”

JOBIT: Kello, Thomas [MC1969 RIP] 2019-Jan-22



Thomas Kello
Thomas Kello, born in Brooklyn, lived in Port Washington, and then in Troy, died peacefully of heart disease at home on January 22, 2019.

Tom graduated from Padua High School in Watkins Glen, taught by the Christian Brothers, weaving the moral fabric of his life. Watkins Glen was a place of nature he knew deeply and referred to often in his life. He earned a bachelor’s degree in biology from Manhattan College in 1969, and went on to have two careers, one in information technology and the other as an entrepreneur.

Tom’s I.T. career began when mainframe computers arrived in the late sixties on Wall Street. He started out at the brokerage firm, Eastman Dillon, as a computer operator. Tom took exams for programming, and scored 100% at the top of the class. He then worked at several companies as an I.T. specialist, and then manager, including Honeywell, Commercial Credit, Simon and Shuster, and ultimately director of MIS at American Express.

In the 1990’s, Tom started his first entrepreneurial venture, New York Homebrew, at the start of a boom in homebrew interest and enthusiasm. Then in 2001, Tom and Jackie opened Haven Art. The arts and crafts studio became a resource for the Long Island community of artists, professional or hobbyists, to create and share their work. Tom ran his businesses with heart and generosity to all for nearly 20 years.

Thomas Kello is survived by his wife, Jacqueline; their two sons, Christopher and David; and their grandchildren, Thomas and Emma. There will be a celebration of life gathering at 132 3rd St., Troy on Friday, April 5, 2019. For online condolences please visit: SimpleChoicesCremation.com.
