So today we are at a car show in Fort Myers Beach and someone asked me to take his picture in front of a Corvette. It was Dale Amborski. "Its a small world" is not only true in Orlando at Disney.

Hey Lea did you explain to Dale the concept of a "selfie"? Can't wait for car shows to start up here.

Mary Gould Driscoll messaged me the sad news that our classmate Tim Sullivan has died. We went to grade school with him at the old St. Ann (now St Martin de Porres) and he was a wonderful guy, very kind and very smart. We had contacted him re serving as a deacon at our 50th reunion Liturgy, but he was not in good health and had to decline.

Wondering if anyone knows more about this? Maybe watch for an obituary. I believe he lived in Chicago.

... just adding to the previous message...

Tim Sullivan's "profile" is very sparce on our CCHS66 site here which is in keeping with his very humble nature. He worked at one time as an ATF agent and became a Catholic deacon serving in several parishes in his Chicago area. He founded a 501c3 company, PBJ Outreach Inc.-Our Lady of Good Counsel which helps "homeless people and marginalized poor in the Cass Corridor of Detroit," played Santa at Christmas time and leaves two daughters.

Tim Sullivan was the Permanent Deacon at St Clement Parish in the Lincoln Park area just north of Chicago. I have copied below a brief biography of Tim taken from the parish website. 

Deacon Tim Sullivan

Permanent Deacon 

Deacon Tim is the permanent deacon assigned to the parish family at Saint Clement by Cardinal George.  He is an Ohio native where he went to John Carroll University in the Cleveland Area.  He was a Special Agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (which was then under the U.S. Treasury Department).  After retiring from ATF in 1999 he was ordained to the permanent diaconate by Adam Cardinal Maida of the Archdiocese of Detroit and received his masters of theology in 2000 from Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit.  During hisstudies for the diaconate, he did his internship at St. Mary’s Hospital in Livonia, Michigan in pastoral care.  He taught Theology at Loyola High School in the inner city of Detroit for eight years as well as being the campus chaplain and chair of the theology department for five years.  During that period he also was the chaplain (4 years) at a juvenile girls detention facility in Dearborn Heights, Michigan and chaplain at a nursing home in Detroit (5 years).  From 2001 until 2010 he was the Detroit Field Division Chaplain for the Bureau of ATF.  In 1992 he founded a public charity which ministered to (and continues to minister) to the homeless and marginalized in downtown Detroit and continued as president until 2010.  He still remain on the board of directors to an organization that now has three locations and serves between 250-300 people ever week on Saturday (food, clothing and counseling).  He has two daughters in Chicago.

As a deacon, his primary ministry is one of charity. He also assists at Mass, proclaims the Gospel, preaches, baptizes and witnesses marriages as well as para-liturgical duties such as Benediction during the week, house and business blessings as well as a variety of other services.  He is also available for counseling and spiritual direction.

Thanks to all of you who supported the CCHS virtual gala last evening.  It was an outstanding hour of honoring CCHS, past, present and future.  On behalf of our CCHS students, I truly appreciate your support.  Over $300,000 was raised for student scholarships!!! If you didn't have an opportunity to contribute and would still like to donate, its not too late!  Check out the CCHS website or call their Advancement office.

Following is news that was received via Facebook today from Sheri Speweik  in regard to her partner and our friend, Bob Helvey CCHS Class of 1965, that she would like shared. "I am requesting prayers for my partner Bob Helvey. He had back surgery on April 18th. The Dr. nicked the spinal cord. This led to many complications. He is in the hospital with spinal meningitis. He will be on antibiotics for 4 - 6 weeks. He is in a mental state of confusion and really can't talk."  Please keep both Bob and Sheri in your thoughts and prayers!

Bill and I were best friends throughout grade school, high school and beyond. We kept in touch over the years and among many other things we had in common were our birthdays in September, one day apart. He will be sorely missed.
