David Leman ’82

David Leman ’82 passed away on June 25, 2017.  David Martin Leman passed away from complications of lung cancer at St. Anthony’s Hospital in Denver on June 25, 2017, surrounded by loving siblings. He was one week shy of his 54th birthday. Born in Denver July 2, 1963, he was the fifth of seven children and the eldest son of George Daniel Leman and Bonnie Lee Hale Leman. He graduated from Regis Jesuit High School in Denver and Ft. Lewis College in Durango, and spent his career in the publishing industry.

An avid fisherman, hunter, skier, snowboarder and kayaker, he loved spending time in the mountains of Colorado at any and all times of the year. He sought adventure, with open ocean fishing trips, bungee jumping in New Zealand and extreme roller coasters across the United States. He enjoyed an early retirement developing a private tract of hunting land near Trinidad in southern Colorado.

The only thing he might have loved more than the outdoors was spending time with his family, and he organized numerous family dinners, group trips, and holidays, assuming the role of official family Santa Claus after the death of his father. Fiercely independent and stoic, he endured serious health challenges in private, and lived his life to the end as he wished. Passionately concerned about the world around him, he made numerous contributions to political and social causes dear to his generous and sensitive heart.

He is survived by his heartbroken siblings, sisters Megan O’Gorman, Mary Austin, Emilie Leman and Georgianne Holland and brothers Andrew Leman and Matthew Leman, his brothers and sister in law John O’Gorman, Milton Austin, Ted Holland, Glenn Alfonso and Tara Leman, his beloved nephews and nieces Jerome DeFelice, Pauline Davis, Jessie Bender, Laura Bender, Eric Bender and Avery Leman, and his great nephew JJ DeFelice and great niece Elliot Davis. He will be missed by his beloved cousins, the Most family of New Mexico and the Hale family of California. He will be forever remembered as Super Dave: a good son, a wonderful brother, and the world’s best uncle.

Visitation at 1:00 pm Friday, June 30, at Mt. Olivet Mortuary, 12801 W. 44th Ave., Wheat Ridge, CO 80033. Funeral services to follow at 2:00 pm.

Our beloved friend and long-time faculty member of St. Pius X Catholic School, Ann Matt, gave up her battle with cancer and passed away this morning. As a school we prayed for her today and for her family. She passed peacefully early this morning with all five of her children and her husband with her. Her daughter described her as completely at peace when she passed. We have been so blessed by Mrs. Matt at our school, and we will truly miss her. I have spoken with the whole school via the announcements, and then with classes and individuals who needed some extra support. I have shared with the students that though we hurt, Mrs. Matt is no longer hurting. She is spending Christmas in the arms of Jesus, which is exactly where she longed to be. We will be dedicating our Christmas Concert to Mrs. Matt this evening, as we sing in joy about the birth of our Lord. She was always so joyful, and we hope she will love our gift of song this evening.  Her family has shared with me that her wish was to be cremated, so they will not be having services for her until after the first of the year. They will let us know more details in January, and will also let us know details of where donations can go, if people desire to make donations. As a faculty and staff, we are hurting. But we want to be here fully to support your children.  We will be available to be with them for whatever they may need today or tomorrow. Please let us know how we can help. Please pray for her family.

In Christ,
Eileen Michalczyk

William "Billy" Meckling '11

We are saddened to inform you that William "Billy" Meckling '11 passed away on May 16, 2015. Read a tribute about Billy below.

I Am Strong, If You Are Strong: A Tribute to Billy Meckling

The University of Notre Dame fencer passed away one day shy of graduation, yet he left his mark on the University and the Irish fencing team.

“I am strong, if you are strong.”

Repeat that phrase and ruminate on what it means.

The first part—“I am strong”--is a declarative statement. It can pertain to any type of strength--physical, mental or emotional--yet it pertains only to an individual.

The second part of the saying—“if you are strong”--is where the symbolism lies. The person in the first part needs others to be strong, because that personal strength actually is drawn from those other individuals.

So this phrase, this simple mantra, is more of a cause-and-effect statement. “If you are strong, I am strong” is how it should really be said.

The University of Notre Dame fencing team adopted this mantra for the 2014-15 season, and no one embodied its meaning more so than William “Billy” Meckling. A senior from Denver, Colorado, Meckling served as a mentor to a young Irish sabre squad that helped clinch the 2015 Atlantic Coast Conference team title for Notre Dame.

“Billy was a talented fencer and a determined worker,” said Notre Dame head coach Gia Kvaratskhelia. “More importantly he was a great friend to all members of our program. He was a true Notre Dame man, and his kindness and warmth impacted each and every one of us. That is what makes his loss all the more difficult.”

Meckling passed away May 16--one day before he was set to graduate from the University--after falling from a roof slick from midnight rains. He left behind many still in shock over the nature of his death. All those entities--family, friends, classmates, teammates, coaches--came together two days later to remember who Billy was and to be strong for each other in a time of deep sorrow.

“Billy was simply an all-around amazing person. He helped show everyone what it means to be a Notre Dame student-athlete,” said Jonah Shainberg, a fellow member of the Irish men’s sabre team.

Who exactly was Meckling? A mechanical engineering major, he lived in Knott Hall and was known for his easygoing personality. He had an uncanny ability to break down difficult problems into simple solutions. He was admired and counted as a friend by many of the people with whom he crossed paths over his four years in South Bend.

“Billy never let life bother him,” said Shainberg. “He showed up at practice every day ready to work his hardest and contribute whatever he could to the team--and always with a smile on his face that was overly contagious. Whether it was meeting me early in the day so I had a lifting buddy, or staying late at practice to give me one last tough bout before a tournament, or meeting me at dinner so I wouldn’t have to eat alone, Billy was always looking out for me and the rest of the team.

“As a freshman, I was lucky to have someone like Billy to help ease the difficult transition to college. He welcomed me to the team on Day One and never stopped being not only a great teammate, but also a close friend. Billy’s ever-positive attitude, his drive and overwhelming friendliness will impact me for the rest of my life.”

According to his father, Meckling always had a keen interest in science and knew it could help make a deep, immediate impact on the lives of many--and that was what motivated him to declare engineering as his major.

“I got to know Billy best through his visits during office hours,” said associate professor Jim Schmiedeler. “He always came well prepared. He had very specific questions to ask. He always thanked me very politely and went to finish his work.

“This is the kind of student you appreciate as a faculty member. Billy never simply asked for solutions. Instead he asked questions that helped him understand how to do the work himself. He was a classic Notre Dame student in this regard, as fully engaged in his coursework as he was in his fencing.”

Professor Meng Wang said that, in her computational fluid dynamics class, he “was a committed student who worked hard. The workload for this course is nearly twice that of an average class in terms of time spent outside class, and it is not a required course, yet Billy took it and performed well. If he was stuck on a homework problem, he would come to my office for a discussion. That demonstrated to me that he was more interested in completing the work properly.”

Meckling’s deep sense of humility perhaps stood out most. Never one to seek the spotlight, he tried out for the Notre Dame fencing team only at the insistence of his hometown fencing club coach. Meckling didn’t think he was a strong enough fencer to make the team. But once he made the Irish roster as a walk-on, his impact was immediate. He produced a 40-4 record in 2012—for the second-best individual record on the sabre team during the regular season. Meckling earned a monogram in his first year with the team and went on to earn a second monogram in 2014.

“I knew Billy for three years, but it didn’t take long to realize he was special,” said fellow walk-on Nicole McKee, a junior member of the women’s foil squad in 2015. “He was the most warm-hearted person, with the most genuine, beautiful smile. He humbly welcomed others with open arms and accepted them for who they were, which is why so many felt comfortable around him. I appreciated his insight and often went to him for advice. I will miss being able to talk with him, but I also will miss how he greeted me every day for practice, with a surprise noogie.

“A bright and hopeful light went out in our world when Billy left us far too soon. He juggled fencing with school, yet he still managed to be there for others and put smiles on the faces of those with whom he was surrounded.”

Meckling earned honorable-mention all-Midwest Fencing Conference accolades in both the 2012 and 2013 seasons for his 11th-place finishes at the conference tournament. Despite never competing at an NCAA Championship, Meckling remained a valuable combatant for the Irish sabre squads throughout his career. He finished with a 93-21 career win-loss record and helped the men’s team (all weapons combined) etch a 26-6 record in 2015.

“When you think of the success of Notre Dame fencing, you usually think of our Olympic-caliber athletes,” said Kvaratskhelia. “Yet, equally integral to our team success are the unsung names, the walk-ons who bring positive spirit, energy and camaraderie to practices and competitions and push their teammates and themselves to greater heights.

“Billy Meckling was one of those teammates to us. He was an invaluable member of our sabre squad, someone who left a massive impact on all of us as a fencer and a human being.”

There can be many reasons that make someone “strong.” Overcoming adversity is a recurrent storyline in many a collegiate athlete’s four-year story. Meckling’s hard work and contributions over the last four years undoubtedly will serve as driving forces for returning members of the Irish fencing program.

He helped make the mantra “I am strong, if you are strong” an enduring theme for many.

Rest in peace, Billy.

Know that you were loved by all and that you changed many a person’s life in your time at Notre Dame.

You will be missed.

-- by Lizzie Mikes, Media Services Coordinator

To forever honor and celebrate the spirit in which Billy lived his life, the Meckling family recently created an endowed scholarship fund in Billy's name. The Billy Meckling Scholarship Fund at Notre Dame honors the memory of their son and brother, a young adult of great promise who left this world all too soon. The scholarship will be awarded annually to a Notre Dame fencing and engineering student who best embodies the qualities Billy so gracefully lived. Friends, family, and loved ones may honor Billy by contributing to the Billy Meckling Scholarship Fund at the following link: supporting.nd.edu/billy. Loved ones are also encouraged to leave a tribute or favorite memory in the text box at the bottom of the link.

Frank Sferra, RJ Alumnus '54 and former RJ Teacher

Please know that Frank Sferra, RJ Alumnus of the Class of ’54, passed away recently. As the article from the CHSAA website mentions, Mr. Sferra taught at Regis Jesuit at some point during his career as an educator. Our records from those days are unfortunately incomplete; we think it was in the late ’50s.

Here is how Fr. Steele remembers Mr. Sferra in today’s blog:

… I'd like to note one final transition that occurred this past week: the passing of Frank Sferra '54, Regis Jesuit alum and former teacher, and longtime teacher and speech coach at Mullen High School. As a Regis Jesuit student I spent many a winter Saturday at speech meets. I can't think of those days without recalling the image of Frank Sferra's bright red vest covering his significant paunch. His Mullen speakers and debaters were formidable, and he was justifiably proud of them. But he always had a place in his heart for his alma mater, and was unfailingly gracious to us "Regis boys." He was one of the great ones in the history of secondary education in Colorado.
