Michael Robert Carty
Sad already, Mike Carty’s death prevented him from attending the 50th class reunion, except in spirit. He had plenty.
GENEVA – Michael Robert Carty of Geneva, New York, passed away after a brief illness at Geneva General Hospital on February 9, 2018. He was 71.
Friends may call from 4 to 7 p.m. at the DeVaney-Bennett Funeral Home, 181 N. Main St., Geneva, NY on Thursday, (February 15). A Mass of Christian Burial will be at 10 a.m. on Friday (February 16) in St. Stephen’s Church.
Memorial contributions in Mike’s name may be made to Thrive to Survive, P.O. Box 1146, Geneva, NY 14456.
He was born January 12, 1947, also at Geneva General Hospital. Michael was the son of Doctor William Wade and Elizabeth (Kayes) Carty of Geneva, New York. He attended De Sales High School in Geneva, graduating with the class of 1964, and went on to earn degrees from the University of Notre Dame and Cornell University. Of all his passions, Michael’s first and foremost was his alma mater. He would plan his fall Saturdays around the Fighting Irish football team, bringing his family and friends along for many pilgrimages to South Bend, Indiana. Most recently, the South Bend trip included campus visits by his grandsons Colin and Aidan. Michael traveled far and wide to watch the Irish, even following them to Ireland in 1996. He was a consummate host. Whether it was one of the annual Super Bowl parties hosted by he and Liz each year (for more than forty years!), a dinner for twelve of their closest friends, or a quick beer on the porch after a round of golf, Mike Carty never let a glass go empty, and a wine bottle was always poured to the last drop. Mike would say he wanted to be able to talk to “anyone about anything” for fifteen minutes. This talent he had for speaking with anyone – friend or stranger – served him well for many years as a salesperson in the food service industry. He was an avid golfer and a member of the Geneva Country Club. He was a lifelong member of St. Stephen’s Church.
He is survived by his wife of 41 years, Elizabeth (Doyle) Carty; and his two children Maren (Carty) Nicholas of Dallas, Georgia and Matthew (Niki) Carty of Phoenix, Arizona. Michael also was a grandfather of five, Colin and Aidan Nicholas of Dallas, Georgia, and Shaun Harris, Zoe Slagel-Carty and Samuel Carty of Phoenix, Arizona. His sister, Sheila (Carty) Cecere, resides in Jacksonville, Florida, and his sister-in-law, Barbara (Doyle) Barnes lives in Chattanooga, Tennessee. He had several nieces and nephews, and many cousins.
In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his brothers-in-law Stephen Cecere and Charles Barnes.

John Longhi was born in White Plains, New York, raised in Larchmont, New York, and lived most of his adult life in Hamden, Connecticut. Following his graduation from Notre Dame with a BS in geology, John entered the Peace Corps and served in Kenya for more than 2 years where he met and married Tess, a nurse volunteer, who had a smile that could light up a room. While in Kenya, John designed and supervised construction of rural water supplies. Upon returning to the USA, John and Tess moved to Cambridge, Massachusetts where Tess worked as a visiting nurse and gave birth to a baby girl, Sarah. Meanwhile, John earned a PhD in geology at Harvard. Post-doctoral fellowships at MIT and the University of Oregon followed next. Subsequently, John had a successful career as a research scientist especially at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University, where he worked on increasing our understanding of the origin of the chemical variation in lavas on Earth, the Moon, and the meteorite parent bodies.
John’s career and life were shortened by advancing Parkinson disease. He will be remembered for his calm disposition and timely sense of humor.
David L. Kil Obituary
Mar. 19, 1946 – Jan. 17, 2017
SOUTH BEND – David L Kil, a devoted friend, father, and an especially loving grandfather, left us on Tuesday, January 17th after a short stay with illness. As the son of Roman and Sylvia (Niedbalski) Kil, he lived nearly all of his 70 years in South Bend, Indiana, departing only for a short time to work in Chicago, Illinois. Upon his return, he served as the Assistant Registrar under the Golden Dome for 38 years before retiring in 2012. Surviving David are his son, David Zachary, his 1-year-old granddaughter, Chloe Grace, and to-be-born grandchild.
David had simple passions, travel, photography, and the love of his family. Planes, trains and automobiles were no match for David’s pursuit of vast experience. His early years were spent bouncing from country to country through South America, Europe, and the States, often without a plan or itinerary.
David graduated from St. Joseph High School in 1964. He then graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 1968 with a Bachelor of Art Degree in Psychology. He was a teacher for 2 years at Logan School for special needs children. He then moved to Chicago and was the project director for special needs adults. He returned to South Bend in 1974 to begin employment with the University of Notre Dame, retiring in 2012 after having been Assistant Registrar for 38 years. David was also a former member of Knights of Columbus #553 and Kiwanis, and was a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church, South Bend.
The foundation for David was simple: He gave his all to his work at Notre Dame, his friends, and to his family. They were his priority, without compromise through all of his 70 years. Those who had the opportunity to know this about David would recognize it instantly: that is, he purposed his heart and his energies for others.
Visitation will be held at Kaniewski Funeral Home on Bendix Drive on Sunday, January 22nd from 3 – 7 PM, where a Rosary will be prayed at 3:00 PM by Reverend Paul Doyle, C.S.C. The Funeral Mass of Christian Burial will be held at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart, Notre Dame, the following day at 9:30 AM. David will be buried St. Joseph Cemetery in South Bend. An additional prayer service will be held at the Notre Dame Grotto the morning of July 22, 2017, officiated by Reverend Paul Doyle, C.S.C.
Memorial Contributions may be made in David L. Kil’s name to your choice of St. Joseph’s Grade School in South Bend or to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. Online condolences may be left at www.kaniewski.com.

On March 5, 2016, Joe Kernan, who had been honored at the end of January during a Notre Dame hockey game, pointed out the oversight noticed by Tom Blum when the names of our classmates were read:
To Bryan Dunigan:
Tom Blum alerted me that John Roche had died in Vietnam.
What we do know is that John was an Army 1st Lieutenant
serving in Vietnam. He was killed in action on December 15, 1969,
shortly after arriving in Vietnam.
Joe Hale informs us from Houston of Tim Fangman‘s death from an auto – truck accident June 6, 2015:
I recently received an e-mail from Ann Reins Fangman (SMC ’68) in regard to the tragic death of her wonderful husband Tim in a vehicle accident on June 6, 2015. I knew Tim from freshman year forward as he was on my wing of the third floor of Keenan. He grew up in Omaha and graduated from Creighton Prep. After Tim’s ND graduation he got his medical degree from Creighton and later spent a year or so at the Mayo Clinic before returning to his home town of Omaha to practice cardiology. (Tim’s dad is still living and is a well-known Omaha physician.)
Tim was the only occupant in his SUV and was wearing his seat belt when his SUV (heading north above Columbia Falls, Montana to a cabin – near Glacier National Park) was hit head on by a truck that crossed over and struck the SUV on a viaduct. Alcohol and speed were factors in the accident. The other driver has been charged with motor vehicular homicide, and is awaiting trial.
I last saw Tim and Ann after our 10th Year ND Reunion as I drove over to Omaha. Tim and I traded a few e-mails during the last year or so. I’ve circulated the news of Tim’s death to fellow Keenan and other ND classmates who knew him. And my three-year ND roommate Tom Culcasi said his wife Judy (SMC ’68) would notify her SMC friends. Gene “Skip” Schraeder replied that he could remember tiptoeing as his room in Keenan was close to Tim’s; Skip didn’t want to jostle the needle while Tim’s stereo (once again) was playing Beach Boys recordings. (I can’t think of a nicer way to disturb whatever peace existed in Keenan!)
Many really-nice comments in regard to Tim’s diligence and interest in his patients can be seen if you Google the obituary, etc. from the Omaha newspaper. Tim was predeceased by his mother Jeanne and two granddaughters. Along with Ann and Tim’s father, Tim is survived by a son, three daughters, 10 grandchildren, 3 brothers and 3 sisters.
Cape Elizabeth, Me, 10/29/15—Dorothy Lindsay Brady, aged 102, died peacefully, surrounded by her seven children and several of their spouses. She had been in good health, physically and mentally before suffering a stroke approximately a week before her death.
Dorothy Elizabeth Lindsay was born in 1913 in Lindsay, Oklahoma. She was born in a town named after her father, and in a house built in the 1870’s by her maternal grandparents in what was then the Oklahoma Indian Territory. They were of Choctaw heritage. Dorothy was a member of the Choctaw Nation.
Her parents, Lewis Edward Lindsay and Anita Murray Lindsay, met and married when he visited the Murray ranch as a cowboy on a cattle drive from his native Texas.
Dorothy’s father taught her to read before she began her schooling in a one-room schoolhouse in Erin Springs, Ok., adjacent to Lindsay. She attended the Lindsay schools and then graduated from a convent high school. She went to Oklahoma Women’s College, Chicasaw, Ok. for two years, following which she attended and graduated from the University of Oklahoma, Norman, Ok. Afterwards she did graduate work at the Peter Bent Brigham Hospital in Boston, MA, graduating as a dietician. With the onset of World War II, she volunteered for the U.S. Public Health Service.
As a child, Dorothy studied piano and the cello. She also was an active athlete, playing tennis and riding horses. She met her future husband, Dr. Francis “Bud” Brady, on the tennis courts at the Public Health Service Hospital in Baltimore, Md. They were married in Fort St. John, British Columbia, in 1942, after Dr. Brady, an Army dentist, was deployed to serve the troops building the Alaskan Highway.
During World War II, they lived briefly in Alameda, CA, where their first child was born. She then moved back to Oklahoma when he was redeployed to the U.S. Navy in the South Pacific. Following the war, they moved to Titusville, Pa, “Bud’s” hometown. He developed a thriving dental practice and together they raised their seven children, Anita, Mary Ellen, Robert, John, Michael, Lewis, and Lisa.
Dorothy was a force in her children’s lives. She taught each of them to ride a bike. She made sure each knew how to swim. She insisted they take music lessons. She monitored their academic progress and social lives. She made their Halloween costumes. She made sure they enrolled in “good” colleges. As they married and her 17 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren arrived, she took on the same role for the succeeding generations.
Even as she mothered her large family, Dorothy continued to have an active life. She played tennis and golf. She enjoyed bridge and other card games. She was an active member of the Titusville Women’s Club and the PTAs of her children’s schools. She read widely and maintained a life-long commitment to the liberal tenets of the Democratic Party.
Following her husband’s retirement in 1980, they began to spend the winters and eventually re-located to Ft. Myers, FL, where they enjoyed playing golf and bridge, and had an active social life. They traveled widely, to Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and Central America.
Dorothy constantly entertained members of her family. All of the grandchildren have fond memories of driving their grandmother’s golf cart, visiting the orange juice store, and going to Ft. Myers Beach. She took many of them to Disneyworld and made sure that each of them had the opportunity to enjoy Deer Hill Camp in Durango, Co.
Bud died in 2009, and Dorothy re-located to Village Crossing Assisted Living, Cape Elizabeth, Me, in 2011, to be near her daughter Lisa. Dorothy was grateful to Lisa, and her husband, Russ, for their unstinting help while she lived at Village Crossing.
Dorothy is survived by her three sons-in-law, Dean Jensen (Mary Ellen), Jeff O’Sullivan (Anita), and Russ Leonard (Lisa), and three of her four daughters-in-law, Roberta Isleib (John), Jane (Mike), and Pat (Lewis). Bob’s wife, Margaret, died earlier this year.
She is also survived by 17 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren.
Donations may be made to the Lindsay-Murray Mansion, c/o Lindsay Historical Society, Lindsay, OK. Benson Memorial Library or St. Titus Church, Titusville, Pa., or Cape Elizabeth Library, Cape Elizabeth, Me., or Gosnell Memorial Hospice House, Scarborough, ME.

(In attendance at the memorial service with Bob Brady were many of Margaret Brady’s friends, including Brian and Susan Schanning, Tom Brislin, Dennis and Elise Reeder.)
Bob Brady‘s wife Margaret Brady of Guilford, CT., died peacefully at home, August 15, 2015 after suffering from breast cancer for several years.
Margaret was born September 15, 1947, in New York City, to Fred Schmidt and Florence Bergwardt Schmidt. The family moved to Englewood, NJ, when she was eight years old. She graduated from Dwight Morrow High School, Englewood, in 1969. Margaret received her B.A. degree in economics from Connecticut College for Women (now Connecticut College), New London, CT, in 1969, and a J.D. from the University of Connecticut Law School, West Hartford, CT, in 1978. She was admitted to the bar in both Connecticut and New York State.
Margaret married Robert Brady in 1977. He survives her, as do their daughter, Lindsay Brady Beile, and son-in-law, Tyson Beile, of Seattle, WA. Margaret’s grandson, Lewis Robert Beile, was born July 14, 2015. She is also survived by a sister, Barbara, and a nephew, Alex Himes.
In addition to her family, Margaret’s passions were land use, civic beautification, and gardening. She combined these in her professional career and personal interests and activities. She believed that every generation is responsible for careful stewardship of the natural resources it inherits. She believed that a culture which allows the personal gain of a property owner to trump the collective interests of the community is morally bankrupt.
As a planner, she worked to insure that development respected the land, the community, and the neighbors. She thought life was too short to permit ugly buildings, or overbuilt or poorly landscaped sites. As a junior staffer in New Haven, then in more senior positions in Stamford and Westbrook, she developed master plans and zoning regulations to insure that forests and fields were not paved over and built up without careful management to minimize impact.
From 1969 to 1990, she worked as a land use attorney and city planner for the City of New Haven, the City of Stamford, and the town of Westbrook. In Westbrook, she introduced and oversaw the town’s implementation of recycling. She also served as a member of the Madison Zoning Board and was a founder of SGOD, the Madison organization that helped protect the Griswold Airport from over-development.
She labored daily to improve her personal gardens, first in Madison, where she lived from 1985 to 2002, then at her Guilford home, from 2002 to 2015.
Margaret was a dedicated member of the Garden Club of Madison for over 25 years, served on its board for many years, and was its president from 1994 to 1996 and again from 2000 to 2002. She was a long-time member of the Madison Beach Club, where she was chairman of the Outdoor Planting Committee from 2003 to 2005.
Contributions in lieu of flowers may be made to the Garden Club of Madison, Civic Beautification Fund, P.O. Box 29, Madison, CT 06443, or the Guilford Land Trust, P.O. Box 200, Guilford, CT 06437.
A memorial service was held on Monday, August 10th at 11 am at the Guilford Yacht Club, 379 Old Whitfield St. Guilford. To sign the online guestbook, please visit HawleyLincolnMemorial.com.
