Ed McGettigan writes: In June, there was a gathering with some of the late Dan Paradee’s friends in Voorhees, NJ, and they all had a very nice surprise. They got to meet Dan’s son, also Dan, who will be a junior next year at Clark University in Massachusetts, where he plays on the tennis team. Since young Dan was raise in Maine, few of the Moravian buds had ever met him.
Susan Drylie and Chris “Shark” Gardiner were there. Hounds, Lauren Vogel Zabel ’80, Ken Karpinski ’79, and Chuck Glassmire ’76 weren’t able to attend but were there in spirit. Dan Jr. told them that his family is doing well. Ed noted that Dan Sr. would love to know that the Moravian “Hounds” got to hang out with his boy to provide the lowdown on Moravian in the 70s.
From Dawn:Ed McGettigan writes after the passing of our dear classmate, Dan Paradee, "We've had a tough bunch of days recently, but I want to tell you about some good news. On the day after we lost a great Greyhound in Dan, I found out that my niece (my sister's daughter) was accepted to Moravian where she'll be playing for the softball team. Oddly enough (or perhaps not oddly at all), I had nothing to do with it. Her name is Maria Saverese and she is a catcher. At 5 feet 10 inches, she is the tallest woman ever produced by McGettigan et al stock. Moravian coach John Byrne , the 'winningest' leader in Moravian history, was scouting her for some time and it is completely coincidence that she's a Hound. I will tell you straight out that this information really helped me after our tragic news. I'm certainly not mystical, but I definitely got a shot in the arm. There will be a lot of reasons for me to get up to Bethlehem now and I'm looking forward to it."
I regret that I have been informed that Daniel Paradee passed away November 23, 2010.
