JOBIT: Maloney, James M. [MC1970 RIP] 2019-Jun-23


Good Evening All,

Terry Gaffney has shared the very sad news of the passing of a very good friend of his and many in the
Manhattan Alumni Community and The College.  

James M. Maloney ’70 BS was called home on June 23, 2019. He went to bed and never woke up. His death was peaceful but so sad.

As Terry says, we lost a keeper, A family man, a dear Friend, a man who was always ready to give and help out. A man who never asked anything for himself. A man who left smiles and laughter wherever he went. A man with a smile that said, please come in, you are always welcome. A Eucharistic Minister, a Life Active Member for over 40 years of Company # 1 of the Tarrytown Fire Department. At Manhattan and by many of his Friends he was called Elmira because of where he grew up. Jim was a member of the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick in New York City and Westchester. He was a presence pretty much wherever he went but he never set out to be a presence. His open heart, his spirit, love, ethics, charity, beliefs and more contributed to that presence. He will be missed by all who knew him.

We pray for the repose of his soul. We pray for his Wife of almost 40 years, Susan, and their Daughter Clare, his Brothers and Sisters and the Family as the Family mourn the loss of their loved one.

*** begin quote ***

Yedowitz, the soft-spoken Rye boys track coach known for his commitment to his sport and for consistently fielding competitive teams, died Wednesday, four days after coaching a Rye relay squad and just hours after revising a lineup from his hospital bed for an upcoming meet.

Yedowitz, 70, who ran for Manhattan College (Class of 1970) before joining the Rye School District as a health teacher in 1975 and later also teaching physical education, succumbed to pancreatic cancer that had metastasized.

JEMAIL: Tribute For Finnegan, Ray [MC1970 RIP] from Delaney, Tom [MC1971]


Good Morning All,

Tom Delaney has shared a tribute to Ray Finnegan and I want to share it with you. Thank you Tom.

# – # – #

Ray Finnegan was a classmate of mine at both Cardinal Spellman HS and MC. I graduated a year later in 71.

Ray contributed to both schools and assisted with supporting mentorships for Engineering students, MC Summer Engineering Appreciation Program (SEAP) to interest women, minorities and others in Engineering, MC Construction Golf outing. Plus several national Civil Engineering Societies. 

I believe that he oversaw the rebuilding of the basements of the WTC after ’93.

A wonderful person who I have the privilege of knowing for over 50 years.

May he Rest In Peace,
