JNEWS: Sullivan, Rob [MC1991 RIP] remembered

I am writing this on Father’s Day. Our tradition of breakfast in bed gave way to the new Waffle House in downtown Decatur. It was the kid’s idea (which frankly, seems to be an alarming trend for Father’s Day activities) but we all enjoyed it.

The day has drifted along – bike riding for Kristen and Margo, soccer in the park for me and Elliott, errands, baseball practice in the early evening. I even flexed my dad muscles by reading the New York Times and watching the U.S. Open. But I keep coming back to thoughts of my brother Rob.

Rob’s wake and funeral last month must have set some sort of Catholic Church attendance record. Do they keep stats? The three wake sessions were hardly enough for the throngs of people who came through. His funeral filled St. Agnes Cathedral for the first time since 9/11. Robert Jr.,16, gave a poignant and mature eulogy buttressed on either side by his siblings Caitlin,14, and Patrick, 12. It could not have been written or delivered without the gift of time that Rob gave Suzanne and the kids. He took a dire diagnosis and somehow stretched it out for six-and-a-half years like it was an entirely negotiable contract.

*** and ***

One attendee said he worked with Rob at Verizon many years ago. He was younger than my brother, but a fellow Manhattan College alum so Rob took him under his wing. He beamed when he spoke about how Rob was the most intelligent guy in the department and also the most patient and helpful. He felt so fortunate to have known and worked with Rob and he just wanted me to know that. And now I am so thankful to know that.

JHQ: Alma Mater spreads the word about Frawley, Liam T. [MC1990]


Good Morning All,

Tom McCarthy has shared an outreach for Fellow Jasper, Liam T. Frawley. The information below was sent by Liam’s Classmate and good Friend, Luigi Zecchin ’91. We ask for your prayers for Liam and if you wish, perhaps you may want to help this good man. We raise the volume for Liam unknown road he will travel. Thank you for your prayers, love and generosity of ————

Hello, I am a Manhattan College graduate (’91) and former baseball player.  I am writing to you about another former student and player, Liam Frawley, who played from ’86 through ’90. 
Liam is currently going through some tough times and he and his family are looking for some assistance (see the link to an article from the Rockland County Journal News Below).  Liam was the beloved AD at Tappan Zee high School in Rockland County.  He suffered an aneurysm in January and is on the road to recovery, but it will be a long and hard road.  A fundraiser has been planned for June, to help raise money for his continued care and a web site has been set up to help him and his family and to accept donations for the fundraiser.    frawleystrong.org
While at Manhattan, Liam was a student athletic trainer and baseball player.  He graduated with a degree in Physical Education and also earned a Masters of Arts in Counseling at Manhattan.  Liam went on to work as an athletic trainer for several professional organizations and eventually landed in Rockland County, where he became the Athletic Director in 2005   
I don’t know if anyone has previously contacted the Alumni office about Liam, but I am wondering if there is any way to get a notice out to the alumni regarding his situation, the fundraiser and the frawleystrong.org web site?  Letting the alumni know about Liam and his situation.
I have reached out to the baseball coach and the athletics department with a similar request, but I figured I would reach out to the Alumni office also with the same request…. Any help/assistance in getting the word out would be appreciated. 
Fundraiser set for AD who has mountains to climb.  A fundraiser is set for Tappan Zee AD Liam Frawley, a national education leader who is recovering from a brain aneurysm.   Check out this story on lohud.com: http://lohud.us/26QOglN
BJ Greco (bgreco@socsd.org) worked with Liam at TZ High School and can be contacted for any additional information or any other information about Liam or if you would like, I could put BJ in touch with your office.
Thank you.

Sr. Project Manager
