CODEY, JOHN  
CODEY--John. The Salk Institute for Biological Studies honors the memory of our friend John Codey, whose vision as a tireless supporter of science was transformative for many fields of biomedical research. As a Trustee of the Helmsley Charitable Trust, Mr. Codey was central to the founding of the Helmsley Center for Genomic Medicine at the Salk Institute. Since its founding, the Center has produced groundbreaking discoveries in cancer, diabetes and mental disorders, offering new hope for conquering these diseases. Mr. Codey's support of the Salk Institute was just one of many examples of how he worked for the betterment of humanity. He will be greatly missed, but his legacy will carry long into the future. On behalf of Irwin M. Jacobs, Chairman of the Salk Board of Trustees, the entire Salk Board of Trustees, Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn, President of the Salk Institute, the senior leadership and the faculty and staff of the Salk community, we express our deepest sympathy for Mr. Cody's family.

CODEY, JOHN  
CODEY--John W. The Rockefeller University mourns the passing of our cherished friend John Codey, who served for nearly two decades as an advisor and executive vice president of Helmsley Enterprises, Inc. and, more recently, as a trustee of the Helmsley Charitable Trust. A guiding light in New York's philanthropic community, John will be remembered for his wise leadership and his dedication to many causes, including medical research and conservation. At Rockefeller, he was instrumental in advancing basic and clinical research through generous grants from The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust to establish and help support the Center for Basic and Translational Research on Disorders of the Digestive System. Under the direction of Barry Coller, M.D., the center brings together physicians and scientists for intensive interdisciplinary collaboration intended to result in new treatments for a broad range of health conditions. John believed strongly in investing in the scientific leaders of the future. He was deeply interested in the young investigators whose research the Trust has supported at Rockefeller, and he showed great curiosity about their work. They, in turn, felt privileged to know and interact with a foundation executive of such tremendous personal warmth. With deepest gratitude to John, we extend our heartfelt sympathy to his beloved wife, Anne; his three children; his grandchildren; and his colleagues at the Helmsley Charitable Trust. David Rockefeller, Honorary Chair and Life Trustee Russell Carson, Chair Marc Tessier-Lavigne, President Barry Coller, V.P. for Medical Affairs Marnie Imhoff, Senior Vice President

COMINSKY, GEORGE  
COMINSKY--George, passed away on Sunday, May 8, 2016 in his New York City home after a brief fight with cancer. George was born on April 2, 1932, in Tamaqua, Pennsylvania. He lost his father in a Pennsylvania coal mining accident at a young age, and he was raised by his mother and her siblings. He served in the Army in Korea and attended Villanova University graduating in 1954. He married Margaret McNamara, and they raised three children - Agnes, Karen and George. His careers in publishing and advertising took him to Pennsylvania, Chicago, Connecticut, New York and New Jersey. The passions he had for his Lithuanian heritage, fishing, Villanova basketball and a beer at his "local" were only surpassed by the love for his family. George was always there with a well told story, wise words of advice and a joke to those who encountered his company. He is survived by his wife, two daughters and four grandchildren. George will be dearly remembered and missed. A Memorial Mass will be held on June 11, 2016 at 9:30am at the Catholic Center at NYU. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The Nursing School at Villanova University c/o Villanova University Development Office, 800 Lancaster Avenue, Villanova, PA 19085.
