Patrick F. McCartan, chairman emeritus of the University of Notre Dame’s Board of Trustees and a recipient of the University’s highest honors, died Monday (Nov. 30) in Cleveland with members of his family around him. He was 86.
“While Pat McCartan was truly distinguished as a lawyer and leader of his firm, he was for me a dear friend and invaluable mentor,” Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., Notre Dame’s president, said. “An alumnus who reflected the highest values of the University, his love for and service to Notre Dame were exemplary.”
John J. Brennan, Notre Dame’s current Board chair, said, “Pat’s contributions to the University as Board Chair, Trustee and Fellow were extraordinary, and he leaves behind a legacy of leadership that inspires all of us who serve Our Lady’s University. Pat embodied the values of Notre Dame in matters great and small, and was devoted to advancing the University’s distinctive Catholic mission. He will be sorely missed.”
