Marty lyons Foundation wishes slide image1

November 2015

Bill was born in Astoria, NY and passed away at the age of 85 years old on June 14, 2015. His obituary reads that he worked for Fleet Financial Corp. as Senior Vice President and was with Fleet for 23 years; served as Development Director for Catholic Charities and as Public Relations Director for Cerebral Palsy on Long Island. He was most proud to have served with the USMC with active duty in Korea.

To recognize the impact Mr. Gibney made on the Foundation, Marty and the Board decided to rename the MLF Life Time Achievement award in his name. It was with distinct pleasure that this award was presented to the former Mayor of New York City – Mr. Rudy Giuliani at our 30th Anniversary Celebrity Golf Classic. To further the importance of this honor, members of the Gibney Family were on hand to take part in the celebration.
