Class of '69

 

Sad news on the Passing of one of our classmates...

Brian Saluk, 63, of Berlin, CT died on August 7, 2015 surrounded by his loving family after a courageous battle with cancer. Brian was a man of great faith and reflected his parent's values in all he accomplished and in his concern for others. His determination, kindness and love of life inspired many during his final months, when he insisted on returning to work as construction manager for the Town of Berlin, where he was instrumental in completing several major town building projects on time and within budget. The oldest son of the late Frank and Joan (McCarthy) Saluk, Brian was born in New Britain on August 28, 1951. He graduated in 1969 from St. Thomas Aquinas High School, in New Britain. He received a Bachelor of Science degree in anthropology from the University of Connecticut, graduating with honors. He will be greatly missed by his wife of 35 years, Carol (Mulherin) Saluk, whom he met at UCONN, and his daughter Rebecca Saluk and son Aaron Saluk, all of Berlin. He also leaves behind his sister, Kathleen Saluk Failla and her husband Tom of Weston; and his brothers Bruce Saluk and wife Janet of Hudson, MA; Barry Saluk and wife Marie of Mystic; Shawn Saluk of New Britain. He is survived by his aunt, Sr. Noreen Marie McCarthy, a Maryknoll religious missionary in Tanzania; 10 nieces and nephews; 2 grand-nieces and 2 grand-nephews, among other family members. Formerly a member of St. Maurice Catholic Church, in New Britain, Brian served on the Parish Council. He was a resident of Berlin for 25 years and attended St. Paul Catholic Church, in Kensington, serving on the Building Committee and volunteering for many parish activities. Before working for the Town of Berlin he was a general contractor of custom homes for 25 years and owner of Covenant Development, LLC. Brian participated for many years in AmeriCares' "Christmas in April," providing his skill and expertise as a builder. An avid golfer, he enjoyed playing on various courses in Connecticut and Massachusetts with his golf buddies, Mike and Steve, and his brothers, Bruce and Barry. Friends are invited to greet Brian's family on Tuesday, August 11, 2015 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the Kenney Luddy Funeral Home, 205 South Main St., in New Britian.

Hello All Aquinas Alumni Class of '69,

Wanted to say Hello to all you Saints out there. We have a lot to be thankful for. Remember those of us who may not be in as good of a place. Life can take unfortunate turns. We can only wish, hope & pray for the best while making the best choices we can for ourselves & our loved ones.

Attached is the most current directory of our class. If there's any info you'd like for me to change, please let me know. I'm not a professional service, so please bear with me. You'll also see a list of dearly departed alumni. Again, if there's any information that should be added, deleted, etc. don't hesitate to contact me. There's also a list of people I have no idea where they are exactly. If you know them, please contact them & ask them to forward me their current, correct info: address, email, phone numbers. Any & all info would be appreciated.

FYI at our reunion last year we had a 40% attendance (73 of the remaining 186 in our class) of which 25% were from out-of-state (18). 31 of us came alone & 39 came as couples, 4, of which, both were alumni. Plus 2 teachers for a total of 108. It was a great party & we all are looking forward to the next, our 45th, in the near future, 2014.

Whoever would like to spearhead the next event, please step forward. And any other volunteers who would like to participate in a big or little way please let me know.

My very best to you all !
