A Letter from

John J. DeGioia

President, Georgetown University

Dear Tim:

I was deeply saddened to learn of your father's passing, and I want you to know that you and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. Sarge's dedication to service in our country and abroad is truly inspiring to so many in our Georgetown community. I am deeply grateful that Georgetown had the opportunity to honor your father with an Honorary Degree in 1964. 

I hope you will find comfort in the support of family and friends who share a great love and admiration for your father. If there is any way that I, or Georgetown, can be of support to your family, please don't hesitate to let me know. Take care of yourself. 


John J. DeGioia
