Omaha University (later known as the University of Nebraska Omaha) for six months to complete his bachelor’s degree in political science.Later, while stationed in England, he enrolled in an overseas program offered through the University of Southern California — combined with the London School of Economics, Oxford and Cambridge universities — and obtained a master’s degree.According to the U.S. Air Force website, he completed Squadron Officer School in 1966 and graduated from the National War College, Fort Lesley J. McNair, Washington, D.C., in 1974.During his military career he held many responsibilities and assignments, which included serving as a deputy assistant secretary of defense for European and North Atlantic Treaty Organization policy. He was also the principal director for European and North Atlantic Treaty Organization policy, and he worked in the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Policy, Washington, D.C.Prior to his retirement, he served as the senior military adviser to the U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency of the State Department, and was U.S. Commissioner to the Standing Consultative Committee at Geneva SALT talks XIX and XX, as commander of the SAC 4th Air Divition (responsible for B-52 bombers, ICBMs, and 28,000 men). He also served as deputy assistant Secretary of Defense under Caspar Weinberger.Elder Lasater and his wife moved more than 33 times over the course of his career.During one of the family’s stays in Germany, Elder Lasater served as a Regional Representative assigned to the Servicemen’s Stake in Europe — the same stake he had previously presided over — which, at the time, covered 65,000 square miles.“At the time of the call, Major Lasater thought himself an unlikely man for the job, since he was required to spend nearly all his time flying to various U.S. bases throughout Europe, training and evaluating pilot performance,” according to an Ensign magazine article from May 1987. “But President Lee set him apart, promising him that he would be able to preside over and conduct the affairs of the stake without interference from his work. President Lee further blessed him that his advancement in the military ranks would be extraordinary.”The next day, as Elder Lasater was preparing to leave on a routine flight evaluation visit to bases in Europe, he was called in by his commanding general and told his assignment had been changed. He would no longer travel, and instead joined that general’s office as his executive assistant.Elder Lasater retired after more than 30 years in the military. He accepted the call to preside over the New Zealand Aukland Mission from 1984 to 1987 and was called to serve as a General Authority Seventy 1987.“I think the great challenge in life is to teach not only our children but also ourselves to make the transition from institutional discipline to self-discipline,” he said in a Church News article printed on April 25, 1987. “As a commanding officer or as a mission president, I can’t command or order airmen, members or missionarles to be loyal, to be honest, or to be loving. Those are characteristics that come from within us and that we have to give freely.”His wife, their five children, 26 grandchildren and 60 great-grandchildren survive him.A funeral is scheduled for Monday, June 19, at 11 a.m., in the North Ogden 7th Ward meetinghouse located at 205 E. Elberta Dr., North Ogden, Utah.

He would wake up every morning and say, ‘Boy, we’re the luckiest guys in the world.’ ”Mr. Fitzpatrick had much to be grateful for.In 1954, he married the former June Bradley in their native England. Together the Fitzpatricks raised a son, Nicholas, now of Portland.In 1964, the family left England and Mr. Fitzpatrick joined the Maine Sunday Telegram. As features editor, he worked tirelessly to promote Maine arts and artists. He did so by hiring iconic art critics such as the late Philip Isaacson, Sherry Miller and others.Larry Hayden, an artist and friend, said Mr. Fitzpatrick was always pushing to ignite Portland’s art scene. He said Mr. Fitzpatrick gave many artists and writers, including him, their first big break.“I got a full-page spread,” Hayden recalled. “Eddie was a booster. He did that for many people. He was at the center of so many things that happened with the arts in Portland.”Andy Verzosa, a friend and former owner of Aucocisco Galleries in Portland, said Mr. Fitzpatrick took a keen interest in his shows and the artists.“Eddie was such a great guy,” Verzosa said. “He always had nice things to say. He was very complimentary. He always had a great story to tell. He was just Eddie. He was a real people person. He was really quite congenial.”As co-owner of the former Pepperclub, one of Portland’s first from-scratch restaurants, Mr. Fitzpatrick was instrumental in developing its popular and creative vegetarian menu. He was also known for his Indian dishes.Mary Paine, his former business partner, credits Mr. Fitzpatrick for their success.“He made great scratch food for a really good value,” Paine said, recalling the years they cooked together. “The one thing Eddie and I shared was a love for cooking food. We supported each other in making really good food and had a common goal of feeding people we cared about. That was the waMonday, March 27, 2017
That investigation was initiated after a former professor of Ryan's at Lincoln College of New England discovered that the state had issued Ryan a license to practice, despite him not completing his courses in mortuary science at the school.A month after the Department of Health probe concluded and Ryan surrendered the license, state police opened their own investigation into his alleged forgery.Ryan allegedly took great lengths to obtain the permit, going as far as to create an email account impersonating the professor whose complaint initiated the probe and forging a transcript–including a false signature from the school's registrar–showing that he had successfully obtained a mortuary science degree.In reality, Ryan withdrew from the school in December 2013 after failing to attend a number of his classes, according to a report from the Department of Health.Despite this, Ryan applied for, and received, an appreciate permit in July 2015. In the permit, reviewed by the Courant, he claims to have completed his study at Lincoln College two months prior. He lists his father as the licensed mortician he planned on working under.The elder Ryan told state investigators he had no idea that his son forged the documents or was working with a license obtained under false pretenses, according to the report.At the time of the state's investigation, Jonathan Ryan had submitted his forged documents from Lincoln to the American Board of Funeral Service Education in order to sit for the national exam and become a fully vested mortician, according to the documents from the Department of Health.

Avon Obituary: Philip Rotondo, 82 - Patch.comMonday, June 19, 2017
Chopin, and enjoyed playing the accordion as well. He organized and performed in waterski shows and had a pilot's license he used to take family and friends on flights around New England. He made wine, cooked the traditional seven fish Christmas Eve dinner every year, and drove his excavator and bulldozer around his property moving rocks for drainage and structure reasons only he seemed to understand. He loved ice cream and sweets, his kids and grandkids, and had a fantastic witty sense of humor. The classic Italian-American, he loved nothing more than hanging out with his cousins and friends, telling stories, making jokes, and solving important problems like how to marinate and grill enough chicken for a 200-person cook out, or how to design a drill press attachment for the quick grating of Parmesan cheese blocks. Phil is survived by his son Andrew Rotondo (and wife Margaret) of Dover NH, daughter Amanda Rotondo (and husband Chris Hayes) of Reading MA; sister Dolores Wiener (and husband Kurt); and grandchildren Abigail and John Hayes. Calling hours will be held on Tuesday, June 13th from 5:00 - 7:30pm at the Vincent Funeral Home, 120 Albany Turnpike in Canton. Services will be held at the funeral home on Wednesday June 14th at 12 noon, followed by interment at St. Ann's Cemetery in Avon.
