chapelQuigley Class of '61 Renunion

Biography - 6

After a semester at Niles, I attended DePaul and earned a BS in Philosopy, but more importantly, met my wife, Joyce. Married in ’66, we have 4 children and 7 grandchildren.

Most of my career was spent in the IT area (midrange computer systems) – programmer, manager, but essentially Business Systems Analyst. After 32 years, I realized I wasn’t interested in relearning PCs, networks, etc. so I “retired” to the Oak Park Regional Housing Center, where I served as a counselor, involved in maintaining racial diversity in Oak Park.

I served on several Boards of Directors, usually as Treasurer, and now volunteer in several capacities, including the OPRHC, Eucharistic Minister at West Suburban Hospital, giving tours at the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio, Ernest Hemingway’s Birth Home.

Most of my time is spent at Ascension where I was a member of the first Parish Council, a spiritual director for many years for the Christ Renews His Parish program. I’m currently a Eucharistic minister, lector (trained many lectors) and sing in the Schola (librarian!)  I still play the guitar for a weekly gathering of a small faith group, and still have my accordion!!! (Got me a minor and a major letter!!!)
