In memoriam

A strong supporter
Pierre (everybody called him Pete) R. Diemer ’43, who was born March 11, 1921, attended St. Ignatius High School in Cleveland and graduated from Carroll with a BSBA in accounting from what was to become the Boler School of Business. After World War II, he married Margaret Diemer, a former airline stewardess, and had eight children. He worked for Shearson Lehman Hutton before it became Smith Barney and was promoted to senior vice president. Diemer was a member of the Alumni Board, President’s Forum, Magis Society, and all reunion committees since 1983. A consecutive year donor since the University started keeping record in 1986, he was awarded the Alumni Medal in 1992, the Magis Medallion in 1993 and Top 50 School of Business Graduates in 1995.

A viticulturist
Born Dec. 14, 1920, William F. Hauck was an enologist who helped finance his college education through a part-time job with a vintner. Hauck graduated from St. Ignatius High School in Cleveland, then earned a B.S. degree in natural sciences from Carroll 10 years later in 1949. Of German-Dutch descent, he was the president of American Vineyards Co. and the Ohio Wholesale Wine Dealers Assoc., as well as a member of the American Society of Enologists. Hauck enlisted in the Navy in 1943 and served on escort duty in the Mediterranean and South Pacific as a radar operator on an assault personnel destroyer.

Hear that voice again
Jerry Cicero had a pleasing voice he used to serve the visually impaired. Cicero heard a radio advertisement from the nonprofit Georgia Radio Reading Service asking for volunteers to read to the community, and he signed up. Once a week for 10 years, he read The Atlanta Journal-Constitution live on the air with a partner. When he was 50, Cicero underwent heart surgery, and in 2009 was diagnosed with cancer. Born in 1936, Cicero grew up in Chicago, graduated from St. Ignatius College Prep, earned a bachelor’s degree in history from John Carroll, served in the Army, and made a career in finance.
