  1. Jennie Walsh Shively says:

    Dad was a proud St. Leo Man and spoke of his alma mater with joy and remembrance!

    How many people can say that they lived to be 90 years young, married to their childhood sweetheart (Barbara) for 65 years, had 10 wonderful children (Jeanette, Kathleen, Margaret, Frank Jr., Mary Grace, James, Thomas, Michael, Barbara Jr., and William)?

    The final joy was to see Dad’s beloved Chicago Cubs win the World Series!
