I am very saddened to pass along this item from Cole Clarke.
Mike Coffey was a great ND Man.
His daughter worked for me, as a student worker, at ND.
Sad to inform you and our classmates of the passing of Mike Coffey '66. He died after a brief illness on August 20.
Mike was one of the first people I met when we moved into Cavanaugh in 1962. We lived two doors apart and spent considerable time telling the troops there of the wonders of Philly. He was an All-American distance runner, of course, and an even more distinguished ND man. Mike made the seamless transition to "South Side Irish" and (very proud) Notre Dame Parent.
