JOBIT: Costa, William Albert Sr. [MC1950 RIP]

William Albert Costa Sr.
Obituary
Costa, Sr., William Albert

*** begin quote ***

William Albert Costa, Sr., the former Commissioner of Public Works for New Rochelle, died Saturday at Montefiore Hospital in New York. He was 88.

Costa, a civil engineer, was Commissioner of Public Works for New Rochelle from 1971 until his retirement in 1992. Born in the Bronx in 1925, he was a graduate of Dewitt Clinton High School, class of 1943, and Manhattan College, class of 1950.

Costa served in the Army Air Force from 1943 to 1946, and was a squadron navigator on a B-29 bomber. He flew 22 missions over Japan, held the rank of First Lieutenant, and was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross with Oak Leaf Cluster, the Air Medal with two Oak Leaf Clusters, and the Purple Heart.

On one mission in June of 1945, his plane was shot down on the return from a mission. Mr. Costa and the other crew members bailed out and were rescued by a U.S. Navy submarine after more than a day in the water.

Costa came to work for the city of New Rochelle in 1957 as an assistant city engineer. His original appointment was a temporary position for two weeks. “I guess I’m the proverbial man who came to dinner and never left,” he once quipped. He was appointed Deputy Director of Public Works in 1965, and Director of Public Works in 1971. Later, his title was changed to Commissioner.

Costa’s no-nonsense style of management was legendary during his years in City Hall. He was also known for his long hours and hard work. A 1977 Standard-Star profile noted: “A key to Costa’s character is his office, which resembles a war room more than the quarters of the Commissioner of Public Works.”

“Covering one wall is a giant map of New Rochelle to which Costa’s eyes constantly move as he talks about the roads, sidewalks, garbage, leaves, streetlights and other public property of which he is charge.” (The Standard-Star, October 9, 1977, Page A3)

“I like my work,” he told an interviewer. “It is very varied, never boring, sometimes frustrating and sometimes difficult to keep your temper. However, you do get to see the fruits of your labor.”

Costa leaves his wife of 63 years, Lida (Draghi), and three children, Barbara and husband Eric Stange, of Arlington, MA; a son, Michael and wife Claudia of Armonk, NY; and William, Jr. of Medford, Mass. In addition he leaves four grandchildren, Michael of Armonk, NY., Cristina of San Francisco, CA, Alexander Stange of Toronto, Canada, and Mia Stange of Providence, RI.

A wake will be held Tuesday, January 14, from 3-7 pm. with a funeral home chapel service Wednesday, January 15, at 10 am, followed by cremation at Ferncliff Cemetery in Hartsdale. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Salvation Army.

JOBIT: Radice, Robert C. [MC1948 RIP]

Robert Charles Radice
Obituary

ROBERT RADICE LIFE TRIBUTE

Radice, Robert C., 88, of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, retired president and CEO of Radice Corporation, esteemed community leader and philanthropist, and beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend passed on January 5, 2014. He passed away quietly and gently in his own home of over 50 years surrounded by his beloved family and friends.

Born in New York on December 30, 1925, to Charles and Mary Radice, Bob attended Fork Union Military Academy and Manhattan College School of Business. He worked in his father’s successful New York-based company, Radice Realty & Construction Corporation, before moving to Florida in 1956.

In 1950 he married his best friend, Teresa Haran, sharing 58 wonderful years together until her passing in 2008.

As President of the Radice Corporation, a developer of both residential and commercial properties, Bob’s earliest project was Edgewater Arms, the first building erected on the Galt Ocean Mile. This was followed by Fountainhead, Plaza East, and Plaza South. The Radice Corporation’s portfolio grew to include projects in fifteen states and forty cities with hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue, and every project reflected the high standards of its President and senior staff. Well-planned landscaping was a prominent feature of every Radice project, and even the Radice Corporate Center headquarters was home to a bird sanctuary and preserve. Radice Corporation traded on the New York Stock Exchange and was consistently ranked among the nation’s top companies. At one time, Forbes ranked Radice Corporation 168th in the nation. Diversification was a key component of the company’s success. It had a number of subsidiaries, including Radice Care, one of Bob’s most innovative ventures, which was created to serve the needs of the expanding retirement housing market.

Bob’s energy was boundless and so was his commitment to the local community in which his family resided. At the request of Sister Innocent Hughes of Holy Cross Hospital, Bob led the hospital’s first advisory board and in 1966 became its first lay chairman of the Board of Trustees. His talented group of Trustees took what was once a small, three-story facility leading an expansion program firmly establishing Holy Cross Hospital as one of the most profitable and reputable hospitals in the southeastern United States. Sister Innocent once called Bob “Mr. Holy Cross.” He was a member of the hospital’s board for thirty-seven years. Bob was also a founding board member of Covenant House and co-chaired the capital campaign to build its facility in Fort Lauderdale. He was also board member of the Coral Ridge Yacht Club and served on innumerable committees throughout his long life. The organization that was closest to his heart, however, was the PACE Center for Girls, Broward. Bob spent over 20 years working with PACE, serving on both the state and local boards, petitioning the state for funding to expand its program, and supervising the building of its Broward Center. On the PACE Broward campus stands a building named in his honor- the Robert C. Radice Building. The family is deeply honored that within that building a memorial will be placed depicting the life and love of this remarkable man, including the numerous awards and tributes received over his many years of community service.

For over fifty years, Bob Radice was an exemplary citizen of Broward County, embodying the ideals of community leadership and creating viable institutions that will continue to benefit the county’s residents for years to come. He was the recipient of numerous honors including in 1997 sharing an honor with his wife, Teresa, receiving the Golden Heart Award from the American Heart Association. Bob was the recipient of the 2005 Liberty Bell Award, presented by the Fort Lauderdale Bar Association and in 2002 received the Ellis Island Medal of Honor, one of our country’s most prestigious awards. Bob was honored to be a member of the Catholic Church’s Knights of Malta and the Young Presidents Organization and the World Business Council. Other honors received include: The National Philanthropy Day Award for Outstanding Volunteer Fundraiser by the Association of Fundraising Professionals and the PACE Leadership Award. He was a member of The Opera Society, The Fort Lauderdale Symphony Society, St. John the Baptist Catholic Church Men’s Club, the Navy League, and the American Red Cross.

Bob believed that his successes could not have been accomplished without the talents of others nor without the support of his family and the community. Throughout his long career with the Radice Corporation, Bob laid the foundations for many buildings, but his enduring legacy will be those foundations he laid for Holy Cross Hospital, Covenant House, and the PACE Center for Girls.

Bob Radice had a big heart and his family, friends, and the community have been blessed by his love, compassion, and desire to do good.

Bob will be lovingly remembered by his devoted children; daughter Maribeth Goodman and son-in-law Anthony Goodman; son Robert Radice Jr. and daughter-in-law Patty Radice; his grandchildren Cameron Goodman and Michael Radice; his brother Charles Radice and sister-in-law Alice Radice; his sister-in-law Peggy Butler and brother-in-law Fred Zito along with many nieces, nephews, and friends. Visitation will be Friday, January 17th from 3:00pm – 8:00pm at Baird-Case-Jordan-Fannin Funeral Home, 4343 N. Federal Hwy, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33308.

A funeral mass celebrating Bob’s life will be held on Saturday, January 18th , 11:00am at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, 4595 Bayview Drive, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33308. Inurnment will be at Forest Lawn Cemetery, 200 W. Copans Road, Pompano Beach, FL 33064 on Saturday January 25th at 11:00am. Bob and his family have requested that as an alternative to flowers, donations may be made to: -PACE Center for Girls/Broward- Robert C. Radice Memorial Fund- 2225 N. Andrews Avenue, Wilton Manors, FL 33311 (www.pacecenter.org/broward) -Hospice-by-Sea-1200 East Las Olas Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301 -Covenant House, 733 Breakers Avenue, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33304 -St. John the Baptist Catholic Church- 4595 Bayview Drive, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33308

Obituary

Thomas Sullivan
Naples, FL

Thomas Joseph Sullivan, a 20 year resident of Naples FL, passed away on January 10, 2014. Tom was born in the Bronx, NY on November 14, 1927 to Margaret Mary and John Sullivan.

He had two older brothers who preceded him in death, John and Stephen Sullivan.

He met and married his high school sweetheart and the love of his life, Marjorie Ann McKeon also of the Bronx, N.Y. The two were married for 66 years.

Tom graduated, the same year as Marjorie from St. Nicholas of Tolentine High School, in the Bronx in 1945 and went on to graduate from Manhattan College in 1950, after serving in post-World War II Germany in the Army. He worked for Chevrolet Motor Division for 17 years in Tarrytown and White Plains, NY. He and Marjorie became dealer/owners of Tom Sullivan Chevrolet, in Monroe N.Y. in 1966. They jointly ran their business until retiring to Naples, FL in 1994.

Marge and Tom had five children and he was a devoted father. His family meant the world to him and he was always known as ‘the most fun father’ on the block! He was always active in their parishes where they located and in Naples, he was a lector and Eucharistic minister at St. Ann’s Catholic Church. He loved sports, getting together with family and friends and his humor and laughter always lit up any room he was in. He was a great story teller, a trait his grandchildren particularly loved. He loved to sing and could burst into song on a moment’s notice. He particularly loved to sing happy birthday, his own renditions of it, to the delight of his family.

Besides his wife, Marjorie, Tom is survived by his five children, Kathleen Ricker (Gerald) of Colorado Springs, CO, Gail Sobolewski (Thomas) of West Sand Lake, NY, Diane Dempsey (Martin) of Fort Myer, VA, Margaret Sullivan of Falls Church, VA and William Sullivan (Patricia) of Walden NY.

Who are the 50 most powerful Irish in America? IrishCentral decided to make our list of the best and the brightest, and while we know it will cause controversy, it will surely also enlighten.

We have identified a super group of people who collectively make us all so proud of our roots. Our criteria was not just fame but influence in their respective fields – from politics to religion, entertainment to science, and beyond.

Enjoy!

JEMAIL: Toner, Mike (MC1972) remembers McEntegart, Eileen F. [MCxtrustee RIP]

2014-Jan-17

Dear f. John,

I had the pleasure of meeting former trustee, Eileen, and her sisters a few years ago at their home in Katonah. Their cousin, Fr. Peter Worn from Syracuse, is a very good friend. They were all charming women with old school grace and hospitality. I think it is of note that Eileen was an IT executive in an era when women in that field were few and far between. I should also ask for prayers for Eileen’s two sisters who were in a serious automobile accident during Eileen’s final illness.

It may also be of note that the sisters’ uncle was Bryan Joseph McEntagart, the fourth bishop of the Diocese of Brooklyn. Bishop McEntagart was also a 1913 BA graduate of alma mater. Prior to becoming
Bishop of Brooklyn, Jasper McEntagart served on White House committees on child welfare under Presidents Hoover and Roosevelt. In 1941 he was elected Chairman of Catholic Charities and later served as the first executive director of Catholic Relief Services. He was also rector of the Catholic University of America before becoming Bishop of Brooklyn in 1957 where he served until 1968, the year of his death.

Thanks, as always for your work as CIC.

ENDNOTE: Not “authentic Jersey corruption”; just typical

*** begin quote ***

A cascade of subsequent outraged denials about transgressive behavior delivered with bravado and finger wagging, from Gary Hart to Bill Clinton to John Edwards to Anthony Weiner, has persuaded me that politicians — who are narcissists and, in essence, actors stuck in the same role — can persuasively tell the big lie if they believe their futures are on the line.

The Christie saga is still unraveling. Maybe he was a dupe in the dark. Maybe the man in the fleece jacket is fleecing us. Let’s just say, I’m not yet permitting him in my circle of trust.

*** end quote ***

“Bridge-gate” to me is a never ending continuation of politicians showing their true colors.

It also exposes the media’s left orientation. How many Obama, Hillary, and Bill Clinton stories have been spikes, buried, ignored, or justified away.

So D or R, it doesn’t matter; they (99%) are all cut from the same cloth.

My take is that this was a non-clever way to pay back and enemy.

Sadly, nothing is going to change until “The Sheeple” wake up and break the D / R or R / D monopoly.

That’s why I am going to move to New Hampshire as part of the “Free State Project” http://freestateproject.org and change a small “Purple” state to a “Gold” state.

(Despite the cold weather!)
