JOBIT: Quigley, Hugh Thomas [MC1970 RIP] 2019-Sep-29



Hugh T. Quigley, 75

July 5, 1944 – Sept. 29, 2019
October 3, 2019

Hugh Thomas Quigley died suddenly and unexpectedly on Sunday of cardiac arrest at his family’s cabin in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom, in the hamlet of Lyndonville. “He left this world in a brief moment, with no pain and surrounded by the peace of nature that he so deeply appreciated,” the family said. He was 75.

Mr. Quigley, who was called Tom, had been training to be a lifeguard only this past summer. Spending time on the beach with his family and his dogs was a great joy to him, relatives said, and also working in his garden.

He was a stockbroker at Merrill Lynch on Wall Street when he met Theresa Koncelik, a member of the Koncelik-Whelan families of Northwest. They married on Oct. 5, 1985, in East Hampton, and joined the Koncelik-Whelan clan. The couple had five children.

Mr. Quigley worked as a financial adviser here. He was “beloved by his community, and found friends wherever he went, be it through his recent endeavor in ocean lifeguard training, fellow dog lovers at the dog park and beach, or even at the dump, where he looked for random treasures to take home,” his family wrote.

Hugh Quigley was born on July 5, 1944, in the Bronx, the son of Hugh Thomas Quigley Sr. and Olga Stupin Quigley, who had moved there from Florida. Mr. Quigley put himself through night school at Manhattan College while working as a police officer in the city, earning a B.A. in business.

At home in East Hampton, he was an enthusiastic swimmer, both at the ocean and at the Y.M.C.A. East Hampton RECenter. “He was gregarious, quick with a joke, and had a laugh that filled the room,” his family wrote.

He is survived by his wife, Theresa Koncelik Quigley, and by their children, Sally Ann Quigley Lopez of Milton, Ga., Helen Quigley of East Harlem, N.Y., Joseph Quigley, who is in his last year of graduate school in Los Angeles, Rodger Quigley of Manhattan’s Upper West Side, and Doris Quigley of Paris, as well as more than two dozen nieces and nephews. “Theresa and his children were his world, and he theirs,” they said. One sibling, Judith Quigley DeToy of Riverdale, died some time ago.

The family will receive visitors tomorrow at 2 Timber Lane, East Hampton, between 5 and 8 p.m.; first for a wake, and then, at 6:30, to share memories. On Saturday at 11 a.m., a funeral Mass will be said at Most Holy Trinity Catholic Church in East Hampton. Burial will follow in the church cemetery on Cedar Street, after which a celebration of his life will be held at the Timber Lane house.

Donations in Mr. Quigley’s name can be made to the East Hampton Town Lifeguards by phoning John Ryan Jr. at 526-429-2973 or sending an email to jryan@ehamptonny.gov.

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,
