Dr Brendan McGuire Family Support Fund

*Update* Monday, October 12, 2020

Susan and her children are deeply humbled by your magnanimous expressions of love, prayers, and monetary gifts, as they enter this new phase of life without their beloved husband and father standing physically at their side. Your generosity has already done much to encourage Susan in her preparations for the new challenges she will face tackling the dual responsibilities of caring for her children and providing for them financially. Thank you for playing a part in easing this burden during this tumultuous time of grief and change. Your prayers and assistance have made it clear that they are not alone in this endeavor. The McGuires are eternally grateful for your support! As Brendan's funeral approaches, and in the days and months to come, please keep them in your prayers, as you remain in their thankful hearts. ¡Viva Cristo Rey!

Dr. Brendan McGuire has passed into the merciful hands of the Almighty after having led a most inspiring and extraordinary life. An exemplary husband, father, son, brother, friend, and professor, he has moved virtually everyone who has been privileged enough to have crossed his path by his wisdom and Christian charity. While he attained a legendary reputation for excellence and care for his students during his time as a history professor at Christendom College, he displayed even more commitment to his family. He died with his boots on, coaching Little League and mentoring students days before his passing. After years of valiantly combating cancer, he has entered into eternity and is survived by his wife, Susan, and three children, Joseph, Jack, and Aileen. We invite you join the outpouring of love and support for his family by making a financial contribution. Above all, keep the repose of Brendan's soul and consolation of his family in your continued prayers. Thank you for your prayers, support, and generosity to the McGuire family! They are humbled and grateful for your solicitude during this trying time.

Only Brendan's wife, Susan, will have access to all funds donated.
