Departed ~ 3/21/2014 ~ Pancreatic Cancer

Dad lost his courageous fight tonight after 2 years, 1 month and 10 days to Pancreatic Cancer. I can not describe in words his bravery, his attitude and his battle. I will never do anything more important in my life than what I have done in the last 6 months–(and the last 25 months) to take care of the best man I have ever known–what an incredible honor!!!!! I’ve never in my life known anyone who loves better than he could!!!! I’m so very thankful God chose him for me!!!!! I am so very fortunate to have had such a loving and wonderful Daddy. I know I will see him again someday and I’m so very thankful he isn’t in pain any more!!!!! Alisha McGaughey

Bernard “Bernie” Kinney ~ Class of 1967

Bernard “Bernie” Kinney ~ Class of 1967


It has taken me a good deal of time to make this decision as it concerns my younger brother who attended ISB from 1964 until 1967 and graduated with the class of 1967. My brother, Bernard (Bernie) Kinney passed away from medical issues on October 9, 2014 in Monterey California.

Bernie the son of Earl J and Adelle E (Jarvis) Kinney, born February 7, 1949 was a long time resident in San Jose California and previously from Northern Virginia and Maryland.

A Vietnam Veteran with the 101st Airborn Division. He is survived by myself Gary E also an alumni of ISB. I attended the school for one year from 1964 until 1965.

I was going through some family matters and came across the records and decided it should be known by his friends and classmates at ISB. I would appreciate someone in the association including his name and memory in the gone but not forgotten directory listing on the association web site.

I thank you for taking care of this matter.

Complications related to Parkinson’s

Posted by brother Bill William Clarke  67′:

My wonderful brother Richard Clarke passed from life at approximately 3 am in Toulouse, France on 5/14/2019, from medical complications (Parkinson’s related) after a heroic struggle to recover over the last 2 and a half months in the hospital, he was 68 years, 3 months and 14 days old. He attended ISB from 1965 until he graduated with the class of 1968. He will be sorely missed by his family, his spouse and soulmate Christine Caminat, and his many friends in America and in Europe, where he spent so much of his life working in France and Germany. I will be posting more pictures from his life later, here is the last picture of him, he had this made for his passport renewal last year 2018. I will remember him always as the kindest brother of all, he was always gentle with people, never a mean word, he had a gentle soul, so handsome in his youth, played in a band at school called the “Soul Remains.” as I recall, with his brother David Clarke and others at ISB, God and the angels will take care of him now.

Departed ~ March 15, 2014 ~ Cancer

Roland Donat Desnoyers ~ age 55 of Highland Park formerly of Round Lake Beach at rest March 15, 2014. Dear brother of Linda (Steven) Mandel, Kevin and Richard. Fond uncle of 6, great uncle of 2. Memorial mass Sat. March 22, 2014 10:00 AM at Immaculate Conception Church, Deerfield & Green Bay Rds., Highland Park. In Lieu of flowers contributions to charity of your choice appreciated.

I apologize for this late entry. But, his memory triggers from time to time as it did just now. And it always will be there. As stated in another entry he had a unique refreshing way of seeing things. He was a friend I didn’t see often enough. I was lucky to have crossed paths with him, you Linda and your Family twice. Once in Centerbook Ct. and once in Bangkok. I will always have the fondest memories of him and all the Family. I miss him.

The Stewart family of Allentown PA are saddened to hear of Roland’s passing at such a young age. We have fond memories of spending time with him and his siblings when we shared an address in Italy from 1966-1969. Roland always had an interesting observation about the simplest things and his point of view and memory were of constant amazement to us. We are sure he will be missed by his family and friends. Good night, sweet prince. Frank Stewart. effess2010 at hotmail dot com February 21, 2019

Dear Linda, John Burke told me of Roland’s passing. Although it’s been a long time since we’ve seen each other, I want to send you my condolences at this sad time. I’m glad John gave you the snapshot I took of your Dad’s grave. He had a profound, life-long influence on me (and many others). I wish you and your family God’s peace and fond memories of your Dad, Mom and Roland. Bill Irwin March 25, 2014
