Steinberg, Robert "Bob Stei" (MC1993)

*** begin quote ***

Summer of 1993: I'm 23 and Manhattan College let me live for free in a Bronx apartment since I worked for the school. I was a recent grad and spent that summer partying 24-7. My apartment had no air conditioning, yet I made it work. I actually used a bunch of fans and slept next to an open window on the balcony!! Flashback last night: 2007- I almost died not having air!!! It is fixed today!!! 23 year old Stei may shake his head, but I am a free man!!!

John "Jack" McNamara
1939 - 2017
Obituary

John "Jack" Patrick McNamara, long time resident of Katonah, New York, died Friday June 9, 2017 in White Plains at age 78.

Born on January 13, 1939 to Terence and Bridget McNamara, Jack was born and raised in Queens, New York. He graduated from Bishop Loughlin High School and earned a Bachelors of Engineering from Manhattan College, where he was a devoted member of Phi Kappa Theta. On April 28, 1962, he married Kathryn "Kathy" Anne McCarthy. He lived most of his life in Katonah and Golden's Bridge, and was a partner at Bibbo Associates, a consulting engineering firm. In 2005, he and Kathy retired to Estero, Florida. In 2010, they returned to Westchester to be with their family; later that year, Kathy died after a courageous battle with cancer.

Together, Jack and Kathy were the loving parents of five children and their spouses: Terry and Cyndi McNamara of South Salem, New York; Eileen and Arthur Hanlon of Rye, New York; Sean Liesl McNamara of Yorktown, Virginia; Brian and Dawn McNamara of Lexington, Virginia; and Erin and Jesse Crew of Larchmont, New York. Jack was also the devoted Pop Pop to twelve grandchildren: Kathleen and Brendan (Terry); Kyle, Ryan, and Kelly (Eileen); Maggie, Jack, Danny, Caitlin, and Rachel (Sean); and Keira and Harrison (Erin). In addition to Kathy, his wife of 48 years, he was predeceased by his brother Terence McNamara and his sisters Catherine Murphy, Mary Buchanan, and Frances Hurley.

There will be a memorial Mass for Jack on Saturday at 11 a.m. at the Church of the Resurrection in Rye. He will then be buried at Our Lady of Light Catholic Community in Estero. Jack was an avid fan of sports and music, particularly Irish music and culture. Jack passionately cherished his friends and family, and was always the life of the party, quick with a laugh or a song. He will be deeply missed by those who loved him.

JOBIT: Murray, Thomas E. [MC???? RIP] on 2017-Jun-13

Thomas E. Murray, P.E., 83

Retired from career with NYC DEP as Chief of Distribution for Staten Island

Thomas E. Murray, P.E., 83, passed away at home on June 13, 2017.

He was the beloved husband of the late Patricia A. Murray (nee Tierney). He was the loving father of Tommy and his wife, Diana, Patricia, Michael and his wife, Annmarie, Robert, Jean Graziano and her husband, Jack, Mary Beth Murray and her husband, Keith Zavilowitz. He was cherished by his 12 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. He was the fond brother of Virginia and the late James, Mary, Frances, Lawrence, Kathleen and John. He was a beloved brother-in-law and uncle to over 50 nieces and nephews.

Thomas was born in the Bronx and graduated from Cardinal Hayes High School. He studied Civil Engineering at Manhattan College. Tom served in the U.S. Army as a combat and construction engineer stationed in Anchorage, Alaska. Upon his discharge, Tom started his career at NYC DEP, Bureau of Water Supply in the Manhattan Construction Division and became a resident engineer on cast iron and steel water mains in Manhattan.

In 1958 he married his sweetheart, Patricia, and settled down in Fordham Manor section of the Bronx. After becoming a Licensed Professional Engineer in 1966, Tom was promoted to Civil Engineer and placed in charge of Manhattan's Planning and Drafting Division. That same year, Tom and Pat moved their growing family to Staten Island. In 1972, he passed the test for Senior Civil Engineer and was made the Distribution Engineer for Staten Island. After 35 years with the NYC DEP, Tom retired as the Chief of Distribution for Staten Island.

Tom ended his career as a consulting engineer with the firms Hayden-Wegman, Inc. and LiRo Consulting Engineers, P.C.

Mr. Murray was a parishioner of St. Adalbert R.C. Church, Elm Park, and later Holy Family R.C. Church, Westerleigh. At St. Adalbert, Tom was the boys baseball coach for many years. He was very active in Mid Island Little League during the '70s and '80s as a coach and on the Board of Directors. Tom was instrumental in the construction of its Travis facility. Tom enjoyed sports, whether it was as a football player for his freshman high school team, a coach for his children's teams, a spectator at his grandchildren's games or just watching his favorite Yankees or Giants on TV with Claudette Cornwall who lovingly cared for him these past two years.

Funeral is from the Matthew Funeral Home, Inc., 2508 Victory Boulevard, on Tuesday, departing at 10:15 a.m. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Adalbert's R.C.

ENDNOTE: Tax-funded anything, but especially abortions, are abhorrent

2017-Jun-17

https://www.survivalmonkey.com/threads/the-rawles-rationale.59559/

The Rawles Rationale

*** begin quote ***

Tax-funded abortions are a national disgrace. This is the moral equivalent of the Nazis forcing German Jews to pay their own train fare for deportation to fenced ghettos and eventual extermination.

*** end quote ***

I’m going through a mild depression at everything. Gooferment is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient. As well as untrustworthy. And I don’t see how it can get any better.

Perhaps the solution is to dissolve the Union and let people freely decide what’s best for them.

Argh!

For me to be forced to pay taxes for things, that I nether need, want, or can use, is very upsetting. For things that I morally oppose, it’s abhorrent to the principles the Republic was founded on: “Life, Liberty, and Property”.

Argh! Argh!
