In Memoriam of Br. William “Bill” Fealy, FSC

It is with great sorrow that Calvert Hall shares with you news regarding passing on Monday, December 26, 2022, of Calvert Hall Christian Brother,  Br. William “Bill” Fealy, FSC.
Br. Bill taught Economics at Calvert Hall 1995-2016. His students were well-known for their participation in the National Stock Market Challenge. They were often recognized locally and nationally for their performance in the challenge.
When he retired in 2016, he wished to continuing living in the Brothers’ Residence on-campus and become a volunteer assistant in the Student Activities Office. 
Calvert Hall President, Br. John Kane, FSC, shared, “Brother Bill was a wonderful teacher who always planned ahead and looked out for the details. After retiring from the classroom, he stayed involved by continuing to serve our students in the Student Activities Office. He also was faithful taking on many duties in the Brothers’ Residence.”
Principal Chuck Stembler remarked, “Br. Bill was a warm, unassuming, gentle soul.  He was always student-centered made a student’s best interest his priority.  An excellent teacher (all of us should have heeded more of his stock picks), he was generous and compassionate to those in need.  He was a faithful servant who will be missed.”
Every school day since 2016, Br. Bill could be found at his desk in the SAO office. Director of Student Activities, Marc Parisi, remembers Br. Bill as a “true Brother and good man. He was very generous and found ways to support our students with the food drive, the adopt-a-family drive, and the magazine drive. He loved our students.”
The viewing will take place on Monday, January 2, 2023 between 9:00a - 11:00a in the Mary & Joseph Hirsch ‘72 Lobby Lobby in the Knott Fine Arts Center. Mass will take place at 11:00a in the Theater with a reception following in the Paul Russo Dining Hall.  A private burial will take place at Ammendale.
