Tom was born to Anne Cleary Curran and Thomas Francis Curran in New York City on Jan. 31, 1928. His parents were Irish immigrants who met and married in New York. Tom was raised in New York in a family of six older sisters and a younger brother. Tom was the lifelong rock of the family for his sisters and brother.

He was a graduate of Bishop Loughlin High School, Brooklyn, N.Y. and attended Manhattan College School Of Engineering. He was a corporal in the United States Army in the Korean conflict. Upon return from Korea, he began a 37 career with the Bell System and participated in the divestiture of the Bell System.

Subsequent to his retirement, he relocated to Maine and started a second career as a dispatcher with the Maine State Police.

Obituary: James Taravella

December 15, 2006

*** begin quote ***

Newburgh, N.Y. James Alan Taravella, 57, of Newburgh, died on December 13, 2006 at St. Luke’s-Cornwall Hospital in Newburgh

Beloved husband and best friend of Rosemarie Taravella, the best father a kid could ever want to Timothy N. and Allison D. Taravella, Jessica F. and Don W. Petree, Jr., and Rebekah Marie Taravella. Cherished grandfather of Zachary Gandolfo and Maximilian Ellsworth Taravella

He was a very special uncle to Sarah, Christine and Michael Crana. Also surviving are his aunts, Jean Schier, Mary Benafante, Mary Taravella and his father-in-law, Cyril Tansey, Sr. He is also survived by numerous brothers and sisters-in-law, cousins, nieces and nephews

Born in Brooklyn, N.Y. in 1949 to the late Adolph and Frances Taravella, his parents and grandparents moved to Vails Gate in 1951

He attended St. Thomas of Canterbury and Saint Patrick’s Schools, where he played baseball and basketball, two lifelong passions. He graduated from Manhattan College with a Bachelors of Arts in English. He received a Masters Degree from Fordham University

For the past 32 years, he taught thousands of middle school students the joy of reading, writing and poetry. Additionally, he instilled a life-long passion in his family for reading, sports, and the importance of living a full life. He especially loved reading biographies and about civil war history

“Father English” loved his students almost as much as his family. He started each school year with an overly dramatic reading of the “Tell-Tale Heart

His quick wit and sense of humor made him a much-sought after master of ceremonies for the retirement parties of his colleagues. He is best remembered for singing “Mack The Knife” at wedding receptions throughout the tristate area

An avid crossword puzzler, he competed against the clock to finish The New York Times Sunday crossword puzzle

“Coach T.” devoted much of his life to instilling respect, loyalty and sportsmanship in all of his players. These young men were a second family to him and he always took pride in their accomplishments both on the field and off

Jim and Rea raised three blessed children who cannot begin to fathom a life without him. Always a proud father, he was a constant source of joy, pride and love to Tim, Jessica and Becky. His two grandchildren, Zach and Max were the focus of so much of his pride and love. He was planning to teach them the joys of golf, basketball and baseball

Known as “Hersti” or “Guido,” Jim was a member of Osiris Country Club where he could be found more often than home when his kids tried to find him if the weather was remotely golf-friendly

Friends and family may call at Coloni Funeral Home, Route 9W South, New Windsor on Sunday, December 17, 2006 from 2-8 p.m., where a funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. on Monday, December 18, 2006

Interment will follow at Cedar Hill Cemetery in Middlehope.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Jim Taravella Memorial Scholarship Fund, c/o Scott Kendrik, Merrill Lynch, 50 Chestnut Ridge Road, Montvale, NJ 07645.

Counterparty Risk and the Subprime Fiasco

*** begin quote ***

Imagine walking down the street and finding a $100 bill. Wow, you say, this must be my lucky day. To take advantage of this good fortune you decide to go to the race track. After reading the racing sheet you place a bet in the 3rd race on the long shot ‘Never Wins’. ‘Never Wins’ has finished last in every race that he has run. Also in the race is the favorite, ‘Always Wins’. ‘Always Wins’ has finished in first place in every race that he has run. You still go ahead and make the bet because you strongly believe that today ‘Never Wins’ will win. The bet is made for $100 and the odds are 100 – 1, if he wins your payoff will be $10,000.

It turns out that on this day a number of other bettors feel the same way as you and they place the same identical $100 bet that you did. The track executives while monitoring the incoming bets notice the large size of ‘Never Wins’ bets but they do not change the odds as they are so confident that history is on their side. After all ‘Never Wins’ never wins and ‘Always Wins’ always wins.

Dear John,

Tom is a member of the Class of 1978. He, like his late father Tom, was very active in the selection committee of the Athletic Hall of Fame Committee and a devoted Jasper Basketball fan (besides being a good lawyer!).

Mike

[JR: Thanks, Mike. Much appreciated. ]

[JR: Based on your strong endorsement, us injineers will just have to overlook his poor career choice after graduation. After all, there was so much more productive work than lawyering he could have done. :-) Was Shakespeare right? ]

[JR: Note to the humorly challenged. Sigh. ]

JNEWS: Loehr, George C. (MC1962)

http://tdworld.com/

December 1, 2007

Renaissance Man

George C. Loehr, Management Consultant

*** begin quote ***

“Either Write Something Worth Reading or do Something Worth Writing” were words of advice spoken by U.S. founding father Benjamin Franklin. George Loehr, a self-employed management consultant based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, U.S., has accomplished both feats. During his 45-year career, Loehr has not only made an indelible mark on the electric utility industry, he is also a renowned photographer and a published author.

Raised in the middle-class neighborhood of Queens Village, a borough of Queens, New York, U.S., Loehr says his father pressed him from a young age to pursue a career in engineering. “My dad was a very intelligent man, but he only had an eighth grade education,” remembers Loehr. “When he read the The New York Times every Sunday, he noticed all the pages of ads for engineers and the salaries they were making. So, he really encouraged me to go into that.”

After attending a Jesuit high school, where he was required to take four years of Latin, three years of classical Greek and two years of French, the honors student found he was hungry for all things related to math and science. “I had been smothered in liberal arts,” says Loehr. “That, combined with my father’s encouragement and the fact that I discovered if I studied engineering, I didn’t have to take any languages, led me to enter Manhattan College’s School of Engineering.”

Partway through his junior year of college, Loehr’s father passed away unexpectedly. “I realized then that my father had been pushing me toward engineering,” he says. “I also started asking myself what the heck I was going to do with my degree. At the same time, I had developed a fascination and taste for literature, and I was writing serious poetry.”

According to Loehr, he was elected editor of the school’s literary magazine – the first time in the school’s history that an engineer had been chosen as head of the publication. “So, I decided maybe I should be an English professor,” he says. “My strategy was to finish school, take as many English courses as I could until I graduated, find a job in engineering and at the same time start earning my master’s degree in English.”

Staying true to his plan, Loehr completed college, was accepted into New York University’s graduate program and landed a full-time job at Consolidated Edison (Con Edison) as an assistant engineer. He earned his master’s degree in English literature in just two years by taking night courses and began working toward his doctorate.

William J. Tangredi Ph.D.

Tangredi, William J., Ph.D.

LOUDONVILLE William J. Tangredi, Ph.D., age 73, entered into eternal life Tuesday, January 8, 2008 at home.

Born in the Bronx on May 2, 1934 to Daniel V. and Mamie Rosetti Tangredi, he graduated in 1955 from Manhattan College, B.S. chemistry in 1957 from Marquette University, M.S. chemistry, and in 1970 from R.P.I., Ph.D. He was professor emeritus of Siena College. A recipient of a National Foundation of Science award, he enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1957 and served for two years as specialist fourth class chemist at Fort Detrick Labs in Frederick, Md.

He met his one and only sweetheart, Rosalinda Carbonell at Marquette and got married in 1960. He was the recipient of a National Science Foundation award and taught briefly at the College of Notre Dame of Maryland, Baltimore. He later moved to Schenectady and worked at the R&D labs at General Electric. William realized that teaching was his forte; he left GE and began teaching full-time at Siena College in 1962. He moved his family to Loudonville, their home for the past 42 years. A dedicated, energetic and enthusiastic teacher, his students fondly called him the “little dynamo.” Rose, Dan, Paul and Teressa were the love and main focus of his life. Bill has an incredible ear for music and was an avid photographer. Equally versatile playing Brahms, Gershwin, Scott Joplin and Fats Waller, he entertained his friends and colleagues at home on numerous occasions. He was the main accompanist during the early years of the Siena Men’s Glee Club. He was a former member of the faculty and curriculum committees and junior board of instruction at Siena. The only sabbatical leave he took during 34 years of teaching was spent advising the science department at the the School for the Deaf in Rome, N.Y. He retired from Siena in August 1996. Besides music and photography, he spent his time tending his vegetable gardens in his backyard, and motoring yearly to the West Coast to visit Teressa. He was a die-hard NY Yankee rooter all his life. He was a past member of C.A.M.E.R.A. of Albany. He traveled throughout the continental USA to visit and photograph nature in our various National Parks.

Survived by his wife of 47 years, Rose; sons, Daniel (Mich.) and Paul (Tracey) (Niskayuna) and daughter, Teressa (Joseph Toto) (Calif.); six grandchildren, Amanda and Jacquelyn, Lynn, Anthony and Bruce, and Starla. Bill was predeceased by his brother, Daniel Tangredi Jr. and his parents. The family wish to express gratitude for the excellent care given by the staff of Rensselaer Community Hospice, especially to Carol V. and Pat B. for their caring and personal attention to Bill. Also profuse thanks to Fr. Farano and Fr. Walsh of St. Pius for their friendship and just for being there at all times for us. Thanks also to his physicians, Dr. Paul Lemanski and Dr. David Hart.

Funeral services will be held in the Church of St. Pius X, Loudonville, Saturday, January 12, 2008 at 2:30 p.m. to which relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend. Interment will be private in St. Agnes Mausoleum in Menands. There will be no calling hours. As Bill was a lifelong communicant of the Church of St. Pius X, the family requests those desiring may send a remembrance in his name to the Church of St. Pius X, 23 Crumitie Road, Loudonville, NY 12211 or Community Hospice of Rensselaer County, 295 Valley View Blvd., Rensselaer, NY 12144.

Published in the Albany Times Union from 1/10/2008 – 1/11/2008.

Dear John,

As a follow up to Allen’s murder, the 1/1/08 edition of the New York Daily News, at page 20, there is an article that reports that the police apprehended the 17 year old, Nikko Colon, they believe did the shooting. Another young life destroyed!

I was a career employee of the former DPW now the DOT. In 1965 I took a highway drafting course taught by Gerry. He recommended me for a vacant draftsman position which I later received. Gerry was always patient and kind. He took the time to instruct me. He gave me the opportunity to do design work. At 64, I am still using what he taught me. While I went on to “bigger and better things”, to this day, I will fondly remember him for his kindness, composure, and perfect gentlemanly manner. Please accept my sincerest sympathies. Izzy

The Manhattan College alumni community grieves at the loss of a leader. We are praying for our past President and the family at this time. “Everyone knows”, but may not be technically knowledgeable or adept at putting their thoughts here. The Jasper Jottings community that I personally can reach have been told. We are all a little poorer now. “No man is an island, entire of itself … any man’s death diminishes me”. We are sorry at the loss. He led an institution that had a big impact on my life and so I feel in his debt for the sacrifices he made to do that for us all.

[JR: I’m always upset when ours is the only entry in a Guest Book. Any Guest Book! The fact that he led the College is even more surprising. imho, fjohn68]
