Our Foundation has lost a dear friend and colleague, Dr. Lewis William Bluemle, Jr.


Dr. Bluemle has been a trustee and Senior Vice President at the Connelly Foundation since 1992.


We will all miss him terribly but are blessed by having been the beneficiaries of his wisdom, kindness, and good cheer for over a quarter century.

Inspired by our Catholic heritage, the mission of the Connelly Foundation is to create access for those in need and opportunity for those with vision.
