Some of our family and friends have passed on over the years, in and out of the military. If you would like to contribute a name, write to the webmaster. Please take the time to verify the accuracy of your information. We have room to include a brief paragraph.

Ingolio, Paul, January 5, 1922 - January 7, 2004
Reilly, Frank, d. June 12, 2004, of lung cancer.
Michael Gary Sullivan November 28,1946 - March 21,2004

Coamey, Jerry, d. February 4, 2005.

My father, Jerry Coamey Sr. (birth name Gerald E. Coamey Jr.), passed away on February 4, 2005, at the age of 65, after a nearly 2-year battle with lung cancer. He was born in G.B. and was the son of Jeremiah and Helen Coamey. My dad and mom lived at 7 Beacon Court from the early 1960s until moving to Bradenton, Florida, in 2001, after my dad retired from a 40 plus year career with Con Edison. My dad is survived by his wife Carole (nee Londis, his sons, Gerald Jr. and Andrew, his sisters Helen Barclay and Pat Minze, his two grandchildren, Nicholas and Olivia, and numerous nieces and nephews. He was a coach of the Braves in the G.B. Senior Little League for over a decade, and also ran the CYO basketball program at Resurrection for several years. He was an altar boy at Resurrection under Father Shevlin, and was very involved with the Cort Club. My dad loved his years as a young man in G.B., as well as raising his two sons, with my mom, in the neighborhood. He maintained his lifelong friendship with several other G.B. men and women, including Jack Flynn, Tony Monaco, and Mike Rossi, who either lived in Florida or visited often.

 

Pat Hughes Schachel d. January 1998

It will be eight years this month since Pat passed away. I am sure many of you who read this were friends of Pat's and will fondly recall the good times we shared with her as teenagers in GB. The summer days & nights at the Point, the Resurrection dances, the parties and all the happy and sad times we were a part of. She would be pleased to know she is remembered on the GB Website. Pat and her husband Bob Schachel moved to Florida with their family quite a few years ago, but the good times we shared growing up will always be a special memory.

Pat would have been 58 years old this February. Happy Birthday in Heaven, Girlfriend
