Barry F. Fitzgerald '59 '66
It is with great sadness that the family of Barry F. Fitzgerald announces his passing on July 28, 2012. He was 75. He passed away peacefully after a courageous battle with melanoma cancer.
Barry was born on June 15, 1937, in Queens, N.Y., to his mother Elizabeth and his father William, both of whom preceded his death, as well as his brother William Jr. As a young man, Barry completed his BS and MS in Electrical Engineering at Polytechnic Institute of New York University and earned his MBA at Long Island University. He was President of American Nucleonics Corporation in Westlake Village for 11 years before retiring and consulting until about a year ago.
Throughout his life and retirement, he enjoyed fishing and boating on Long Island and his second home in Ft. Myers Beach, Fla. He loved spending time with family and had a passion for classical music and fine wines. For most of his life, Barry was a dedicated long-distance runner, having completed dozens of races and multiple half and full marathons. He continued to run daily up until the last few months of his life.
Barry's legacy to his many friends and family, who will miss him immensely, was his gentle heart, kindness, family values, work ethic and faith.
