JOBIT: FitzGerald, Richard [MC1970 RIP] 2017-Dec-27

Richard FitzGerald, an acclaimed juvenile and family court pioneer, has died
Andrew Wolfson, Louisville Courier Journal Published 12:21 p.m. ET Dec. 28, 2017

*** begin quote ***

Retired judge Richard FitzGerald, a nationally recognized leader in juvenile and family law who advocated for children on and off the bench, died Wednesday. He was 71 and suffered from liver disease.
A friend, Tom Payette, said FitzGerald, who was universally known as “Fitz,” died at home in Louisville with his wife, Marjorie and other family by his side.

Terry Brooks, executive director of Kentucky Youth Advocates, said FitzGerald was “the pioneer voice in defining juvenile justice nationally. His legacy and basic premise was that kids needed to be treated like kids and with the hope they can get back on the right track.”
But Brooks said FitzGerald also was pragmatic. “He was smart about justice, and not just tough. It is important that we remember him.”

*** and ***

FitzGerald was named judge of the year by the National CASA Association and received the National Council of Juvenile and Family Courts Judges Award for Meritorious Service to the Juvenile Court System. He also was co-author of “Juvenile Practice” for West Publishing Co. and contributing consultant in the drafting of “The Resource Guidelines for Improving Practice in Abuse and Neglect Cases.”Judge Richard FitzGerald

*** and ***

A native New Yorker and graduate of Manhattan College, he came to Eastern Kentucky in the 1960s as a social worker with the Christian Appalachian Project, an anti-poverty organization. He also was a junior high school teacher in East St. Louis.

*** and ***

He spoke out against the death penalty after his wife’s parents were murdered in LaPorte, Indiana, where his father-in-law was mayor; the couple was attacked by a disgruntled city employee.

“I witnessed the grief and pain their slayings brought to my wife and her six siblings,” he later wrote.

“Personally, I had problems saying the Lord’s Prayer in church.”

He said the judge in that case allowed the family to decide whether to seek the death penalty and they elected against, in part because of their belief in the sanctity of life.

After the murders, he no longer tried criminal cases.

“I could not trust myself while still struggling with grief and anger,” he said.

FitzGerald, Richard J.

Judge Richard J. FitzGerald, 71, (known universally as “Fitz”) passed away on December 27, 2017 after a brief illness. A native of New York City, Fitz first fell in love with Kentucky while volunteering for the Christian Appalachian Project in McKee County. After graduating from Manhattan College, he taught English at Hughes-Quinn Junior High School in East St. Louis before moving to Louisville to study law at the University of Louisville. After a brief stint in private practice, Fitz was appointed to the Juvenile Court bench in 1975, at age 29. Fitz served as Chief Judge of Juvenile Court for more than 10 years and was instrumental in the creation of the concept of a unified “family” Court, from which he retired in 2000.

Fitz devoted his entire career to advocating for the welfare of Kentucky’s abused and neglected children. For his efforts, he was recognized as Judge of the Year by the National CASA Association and received the Chief Justice’s Special Service Award for Outstanding Service to the Courts of Kentucky. He also received accolades from the Louisville Bar Association, the Justice Resource Center, the National Counsel of Juvenile & Family Court Judges and the Urban League. He was most rewarded, however, by hearing directly from the many children and families whose lives he touched. He firmly believed that “there are no unwanted children, only unfound parents” and celebrated his greatest joys from the bench: finalizing adoptions of children in foster care and returning children to homes that were healed. Fitz was deeply involved in his community, and served on the boards of the World Affairs Council, Actors Theater, and the National Association of Counsel for Children. 

He shared his passion for family law, juvenile justice, and education by serving as adjunct faculty for the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law and as a visiting professor at the ChildLaw Center at Loyola University. He was delighted to receive a Doctor of Laws (honoris causa) in 2003 from Bellarmine University. An avid banjo player, sailor, world traveler, storyteller and gardener, Fitz spent his retirement years serving as a mediator, consultant, mentor, educator, and doting grandfather, all while sporting his trademark bow tie. 

Fitz is survived by his wife of 46 years, Dr. Marjorie Rumely FitzGerald, his daughters Nora Meldrum (Brian) and Molly Perry (Timothy), and granddaughters Lucy Perry and Abigail and Emmeline Meldrum. He was preceded in death by his parents, Edward and Ruth FitzGerald and his older brother, Edward FitzGerald, Jr. His surviving family members include his brother Tom FitzGerald (Patricia), sisters Maureen Morrell (Rob) and Jane FitzGerald, and his Rumely family in-laws: Pete and Lois Rumely, Antoinette Rumely, Marti and Henry Kuehn, John and Christine Rumely, and Frances and Terry Jones. He also leaves behind dozens of nieces and nephews, who will forever treasure memories of banjo sing-alongs with their Uncle Fitz. 

There will be a memorial service on Saturday, January 6 at 12 p.m. at Pearson’s, 149 Breckenridge Lane, 40207. Visitation will be on Friday, January 5 from 4-7 p.m. at Pearson’s. 
In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy may be made to CASA of the River Region or the Kentucky Resources Council.

JOBIT: Raber, Roger W. [MC1970 RIP] on 2017-Oct-10

2017-Oct-15

ROGER RABER

Dr. Roger W. Raber, whose advocacy work helped to usher in the modern era of corporate governance, died peacefully at his home in Washington, DC, on October 10, 2017. He was 74. The cause was complications from Alzheimer’s disease.

Roger was born in Jamaica, New York. After attending Saint Anthony College in New Hampshire, he received a BA in Philosophy and an M.A. in Theology and Religious Education from Manhattan College. He later received an MA and doctorate in Administration in Higher Education from Teachers College at Columbia University. From an early interest in theology, his career evolved from educational administration to professional education, this latter area focused at first in banking and later in corporate governance.

Dr. Raber served as director of admissions at the City University of New York in the early 1970s, and as Deputy Provost at the College at Old Westbury, State University of New York, later that decade. In 1980, he became director of education for the National Association of Mutual Savings Banks in New York City, and for the next two decades he would apply his educational expertise in the banking field, moving on to become an executive vice president of the National Council of Community Bankers; president and CEO of the Center for Financial Studies in Connecticut; and managing director, member services, at America’s Community Bankers.

While living in Connecticut he chaired the Weston, Connecticut School District, elected by the Weston residents to restore the integrity of the school system following several crises. During the 1980s he served as a director of Starpointe Savings Bank, staying on the board while it integrated into Dime Savings of New York. In 1999, he began his service as president and CEO of the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD), serving for the next seven years in this capacity, where he built an organization that was strong both financially and culturally. In his role as CEO, he responded at a personal level to NACD members affected by the tragedy of September 11, 2001, strengthened by his faith.

His ability to steer through crisis would be tested at the national level soon thereafter following the December 2001 bankruptcy of Enron, when he testified on the nature of good governance to Congress. His remarks were influential in determining the governance standards later set by the major stock exchanges.

During his tenure at NACD, paid membership grew from 1,800 to 10,000. He developed educational partnerships with a variety of organizations, including Dartmouth College, University of Southern California, Rice University, Duke University, and University of Georgia and created relationships with Association of Corporate Counsels, Financial Executives International, National Investor Relations Institute, America’s Community Banks, Executive Leadership Council, World Bank/IFC) and several governance institutes in Asia, Central Europe, and Latin America. He also established strategic alliances with several leading professional Institutional Shareholder Services, the Nasdaq Stock Market, New York Stock Exchange, major D&O insurers, and leading professional service providers. Dr. Raber had a special love for the nonprofit sector. He formed a Not-for-Profit Council at NACD, and conducted the first surveys of not-for-profit governance. And although he presented boardroom education programs to many of the nation’s largest public companies, his most treasured assignment was his work with the board of the American Red Cross. He practiced what he preached about governance, ensuring that NACD would have an independent and diverse board and strong bench strength. Many of the employees he mentored are still with NACD, including its current leader. Thus the Raber legacy lives on.

During his years at NACD and after retirement, he served in many advisory roles. He was a member of the board of overseers of Malcolm Baldridge National Quality Program at the U.S. Department of Commerce, and an advisory board member at the University of Delaware, Weinberg Center for Corporate Governance. He also served on the board of Washington Campus, a nonprofit facilitating a better understanding of government. His professional engagements in the NACD years included service as an advisory board member to CFM Partners in Washington, DC (banking education), James F. Reda & Associates in New York and Atlanta, a compensation practice (now part of Arthur J. Gallagher & Co.), and the Project Management Institute.

In 2007, after stepping down from NACD leadership to serve as a senior advisor to the organization, he continued some of his advisory roles. In 2010, he was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s, and faced into the disease with all the energy and good cheer he had given his life’s earlier missions. He agreed to participate in two clinical studies at the Memory Disorders Program at Georgetown University Medical Center.

During these seven years as he came to terms with the disease, he continued his volunteer work with the West End Library, as well as So Others Might Eat, and Miriam’s Kitchen, two social service programs for the homeless population in Washington, DC. Always a family man, his final years were full of joy as his beloved children themselves became parents. His last gift of many to humanity was the donation of his brain to Georgetown University Medical Center for further research with Alzheimer’s disease.

He is survived by his wife of 45 years, Dr. Marie Raber, Associate Dean of the School of Social Work at Catholic University; their son, Commander Roger W. Raber, Jr., U.S.N.R., his wife Heather, and their two sons, Jack and Elliot; as well as their daughter, Robyn Borgelt, her husband, Nate and their children, Anna and William.

Michael P. Carey
Obituary

LOUDONVILLE

Michael “Mike” Patrick Carey, 69, of Loudonville peacefully passed away on Tuesday, July 11, 2017, surrounded by family at Albany Medical Center, due to complications from A.L.S.

Born in Albany on July 15, 1947, he was the son of William Joseph Carey and Rosemary Travison Carey. A graduate of the Christian Brothers Academy, Michael played football and was voted a member of the All-Albany team in 1965. He continued to play at Manhattan College, where he earned his teaching degree.

Mike began his career as an elementary school physical education teacher, and also coached football at Philip Schuyler High School. He later earned a master’s degree in health education from Russell Sage College. Mike served many years in the Albany School District, first as a teacher and football coach, then as the director of transportation, and finally as the long-time principal of School 20 in North Albany, now known as North Albany Academy.

Following retirement in 2003, he returned to football coaching at C.B.A. He also spent many years coaching softball in the West Albany little league. In addition to his love of sports, Mike was a long-time supporter of the American Legion in Albany as a “Sons of” member, and a member of the Albany Elks Lodge #49, the North Albany Limericks, the Ancient Order of the Hibernians, and the Albany Polish-American Citizens Club. An avid follower of politics, he offered his time in the community as an election inspector.

After suffering a paralyzing fall in 2009, Mike made a full recovery and was inspired to volunteer at Albany Medical Center. His duties included being a “friendly visitor,” especially to patients dealing with spinal cord injuries. He was proud to be honored with the “Volunteer of the Month” award at Albany Med.

He was training for the Pastoral Care program through St. Pius X when he fell ill.

Mike is survived by his wife of 44 years, Patricia Carey of Loudonville; his son, Matthew Carey of Albany; his daughter, Colleen Luther (Kyle) of Loudonville; his daughter, Megan Geltman (Randy) of San Antonio, Texas; his adoring granddaughters, Ennea and Aliera Luther; his younger siblings, Kathleen Henkel (Hank), Robert Carey (Diane), Maryann Ryan (Kevin), and Nancy Chamberlain; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. He was predeceased by his parents and brother-in law, William Chamberlain.

The family would like extend thanks to those who helped Mike during his struggle with A.L.S., especially Mike Brady, Robert Carey, Nancy Chamberlain, Donna Coonley-Hotaling, Frank Owens, Tom Quinlivan, Jimmy Smith, Jerry Spicer, and Rosemary Wolfgang, as well as the doctors, staff and volunteers at Albany Med and the St. Peter’s Regional ALS Center.

Relatives and friends are invited to visit with Michael’s family, Friday, July 14, from 4 to 7 p.m. at St. Pius X Church, Loudonville. Funeral services, Saturday, July 15, at 9:30 a.m. at St. Pius X Church, Loudonville where his funeral Mass will be celebrated. The Rite of Committal will be held in St. Agnes Cemetery, Menands immediately following the funeral Mass. In lieu of flowers, Michael requested that any memorial contributions be made to the St. Peter’s Regional ALS Center, 19 Warehouse Row, Albany NY 12205 or the North Albany Academy, 570 North Pearl St., Albany NY 12204.
