Joe Fahy memorial

Dateline: Thu 01 Oct 2009

Thanks to Kevin Corcoran. who is sharing the following information about former News/Star colleague and friend Joseph Fahy:

"Remembering Joe Fahy
March 15, 1954 - Dec. 23, 2008
Father Jeffrey Godecker, Joe’s friend and chaplain for the Catholic Community at Butler University, will lead a graveside memorial service to honor Joe Fahy at 10 a.m. ET Saturday, Oct. 3, at:
St. Malachy North Cemetery
267 E. 56th Street
Brownsburg, Ind.

"A tent with chairs will be set up for this ceremony preceding the interment of Joe’s ashes.
Afterward, Joe’s sister, Cecilia “Cissy” Bowman, will host a lunch gathering with brew at her home for Joe’s friends: 8364 S. Indiana 39, Clayton, Ind.

"Irish Wake … American style!

"If you are unable to attend the graveside service but want to hoist a frosty one in honor of one of the finest journalists Indiana has known, please join Joe’s sons for a better-late-than-never Irish wake Saturday at The Front Page tavern at 310 Mass Ave., across from the rear entrance to The Indianapolis Star. It’s not the dive bar it was when Joe was in his prime, but dropping by would be a great way to honor a remarkable journalist who really cared about his friends and colleagues. Bring your best stories about Joe. … We’ll be there from 4 p.m. on."

Anyone wishing info on how to get to these places, or for Kevin's phone number for a crowd update on the Irish wake, shoot me an email at
