Obituary for Fr. Tom Ryan

May we keep Fr. Ryan, his family and the Jesuit community in our prayers.

FrTomRyan 6.24.2015Fr. Thomas M. Ryan, S.J. suffered a heart attack and died on June 20, 2015, at Colombiere Center in Clarkston, Michigan. He was 74 years old. He is survived by his sister, Mrs. Patricia Wallace, of Alachua, Florida.

Tom was born on August 27, 1940 in Toledo, Ohio. He entered the Detroit Province of the Society of Jesus on September 1, 1958. at Milford, Ohio. He was ordained on June 12, 1971 at Colombiere Center in Clarkston, Michigan, and took final vows on February 2, 1979 at Walsh Jesuit High School in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio.

Tom attended Gesu grade school and parish in Toledo, Ohio. As a Jesuit, he earned a Bachelor's Degree in Classics (1964) and a Master's Degree in Philosophy (1965) from Loyola University Chicago. He earned a Licentiate in Philosophy from West Baden College in Indiana (1965). Tom earned a Bachelor Degree of Sacred Theology from Bellarmine School of Theology in North Aurora, IL (1971). He also earned a Master of Divinity from Loyola University Chicago (1972).

Tom spent most of his life teaching in high schools. During Regency Tom helped open Walsh Jesuit High School in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, by teaching English and Speech there (1965-1968). After ordination, he returned to Walsh Jesuit where he taught Theology (1971-1980) and was a student counselor (1971-1977). He also was a director of Marriage Encounters in the Cleveland Diocese (1978-1980). Tom taught Theology and English at St. John's Jesuit High School in Toledo (1980-1985) before returning to Walsh Jesuit where he taught Theology and was a student counselor (1986-1997). Tom moved to Detroit where he taught Theology at the University of Detroit Jesuit High School (1997-2006). Tom then spent two years teaching Religious Studies at Regis University (2006-2008).

In 2008, Tom decided to leave teaching to focus on directing retreats full-time. He directed retreats at Manresa Jesuit Retreat House (2009-2010) and Jesuit Spiritual Center at Milford (2010-2014). Tom moved to Colombiere Center in 2014 where he performed community service such as driving Jesuits to appointments and visiting community members in the hospital.

WALSH JESUIT HIGH SCHOOL STANDOUT NAMED GATORADE® OHIO BASEBALL PLAYER OF THE YEAR

WALSH JESUIT HIGH SCHOOL STANDOUT NAMED GATORADE® OHIO BASEBALL PLAYER OF THE YEAR

CHICAGO (May 28, 2015) — In its 30th year of honoring the nation’s best high school athletes, The Gatorade Company, in collaboration with USA TODAY High School Sports, today announced Ryan Feltner of Walsh Jesuit High School as its 2014-15 Gatorade Ohio Baseball Player of the Year. Feltner is the second Gatorade Ohio Baseball Player of the Year to be chosen from Walsh Jesuit High School.

The award, which recognizes not only outstanding athletic excellence, but also high standards of academic achievement and exemplary character demonstrated on and off the field, distinguishes Feltner as Ohio’s best high school baseball player. Now a finalist for the prestigious Gatorade National Baseball Player of the Year, Feltner joins an elite alumni association of past state award-winners in 12 sports, including Derek Jeter (1991-92, Kalamazoo HS, Mich.), Roy Halladay (1994-95, Arvada West HS, Colo.), David Price (2003-04, Blackman HS, Tenn.), Chipper Jones (1989-90, Bolles School, Fla.), Derek Lee (1992-93, El Camino HS, Calif.) and Jon Lester (2001-02, Bellarmine Prep, Wash.).

The 6-foot-4, 180-pound senior right-handed pitcher and first baseman led the Warriors to a 25-3 record and the Division I regional tournament, scheduled to begin May 28. At the time of his selection, Feltner owned a 7-1 record with a 1.28 ERA and 52 strikeouts in 43.2 innings-pitched. A 2014 First Team All-State selection, he posted a .326 batting average with a pair of home runs, 12 RBI and a .581 slugging percentage entering the postseason.

Feltner has maintained a 3.10 GPA in the classroom. He has volunteered locally on behalf of The American Cancer Society, the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank and as a youth baseball coach.

“Ryan Feltner is one of the finest, brightest, most mature and sincere young men I have had the good fortune to coach,” said Walsh Jesuit High head coach Chris Kaczmar. “He is a tremendous, national-caliber talent on the mound as well as in our lineup who will be missed a great deal once he graduates. I am very proud of his deserving success.”

Feltner has signed a National Letter of Intent to play baseball on scholarship at The Ohio State University this fall.

The Gatorade Player of the Year program annually recognizes one winner in the District of Columbia and each of the 50 states that sanction high school football, girls volleyball, boys and girls cross country, boys and girls basketball, boys and girls soccer, baseball, softball, and boys and girls track & field, and awards one National Player of the Year in each sport. The selection process is administered by the Gatorade high school sports leadership team in partnership with USA TODAY High School Sports, which work with top sport-specific experts and a media advisory board of accomplished, veteran prep sports journalists to determine the state winners in each sport.

Feltner joins recent Gatorade Ohio Baseball Players of the Year Cameron Varga (2013-14, Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy), Andrew Benintendi (2012-13, Madeira High School), Adam Schaly (2011-12, Ashland High School), Taylore Cherry (2010–11, Butler High School), David Whitehead (2009-10, Moeller), Tyler Skulina (2008–09, Walsh Jesuit High School), Ryan Curl (2007-08, St. Francis DeSales), and Derek Dietrich (2006-07, St. Ignatius) among the state’s list of former award winners.

Walsh Jesuit’s Connor Regan Commits to The University of Buffalo

Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, July 30, 2014— Walsh Jesuit senior, Connor Regan has made a verbal commitment to continue his academic and athletic career for The University of Buffalo. Regan will be playing under head Buffalo coach, Ron Torgalski. Regan will play for the school’s NCAA Division I baseball program. Regan becomes the third member of the Warrior Class of 2015 to commit to a Division I school. 

REGAN CONNOR 011As a Warrior, Connor is a four-year varsity member and a member of the Warriors 2014 undefeated regular season. The Warriors were also ranked 3rd in the Nation for 2014, and are the 2013 and 2014 North Coast champions. Connor is the recipient of the 2014 WJ most improved player award and finished 2014 with an ERA of 0.00 averaging a strikeout per inning, and at the plate he had a batting average of .438 with 1 HR, 19 RBI’s and 6 BB’s. 

At Walsh Jesuit, Regan maintains second honors and participates in Walsh Jesuit’s Labre program. 

“What a luxury it is for our program to have someone as versatile as Connor Regan in our lineup,” said Chris Kaczmar, Walsh Jesuit’s head baseball coach. “Connor is merely scratching the surface in his bright future behind the plate as well as on the mound, and as good as he is thus far, I firmly believe his best is still ahead of him. That said, the asset he has become to our program outside the lines has truly been impactful, as he has given of himself to better the staff and help those around him. Whether it’s driving across town to catch one of our pitchers in an off-season bullpen, staying an extra hour to make sure he gets in his own offensive work or his work on the mound, or just talking to the younger players, Connor is evolving into a tremendous leader for our team. He is one of the rare players who does not have to be told what to do or how to act to make the biggest impact on the program. His approach to the game is very professional, and he is a good friend and a wonderful person who will truly be missed when he moves on. We are thrilled he will be joining Coach Torgalski at Buffalo.” 

Connor, who intends to major in Business Management or Economics, is the son of Tim and Tracey Regan of Sagamore Hills.

TRIP Order pickup and delivery day changes to Wednesdays

TRIP Orders will now be picked up on Wednesdays at 9:30 am and delivered back the following Wednesday. There will be no more Thursday deliveries.

TRIP is a gift card rebate program that allows your family to reduce tuition at Walsh Jesuit. A percentage of each gift card purchased through TRIP is credited to your family's TRIP account. Twice a year, TRIP sends a payment to Walsh Jesuit to reduce your tuition. Each gift card contains a percentage rebate indicated on the order form. Of that rebate, 75% is credited to your TRIP account. The remaining 25% is the fee to run the program. For example, if you order $100 worth of Donato's gift cards, your percentage rebate would be 10%. The amount of money that equals is $10.00. Of that $10.00, $7.50 is credited to your TRIP account. The other $2.50 makes up the fee to run the program.

If your family prefers, you may opt to participate in TRIP, but instead of crediting tuition you may donate your rebate as a tax deductible gift to the Walsh Jesuit Ignatian Fund in support need-based tuition assistance. Indicate on your order form you wish to make a donation.

TRIP at Walsh Jesuit is NOT mandatory. The program is optional and available to everyone, associated with Walsh Jesuit or not. Businesses may choose to purchase gift cards through TRIP at Walsh Jesuit and the rebate may be credited to a specific student or to the Ignatian Fund.  Click here for more information on TRIP.
