Patrick Thomas Cahill Jr. Obituary

Patrick Thomas Cahill II died peacefully on September 6, 2019 after a brief illness. When Patrick (Pat) was born on January 25, 1935, in Exeter, New Hampshire, the world gained a brilliant, exuberant, energetic individual. The son of Patrick Thomas Cahill and Alma Plourde Cahill, Pat attended Exeter, New Hampshire public schools, and graduated from Phillips Exeter Academy. He was an honors graduate of the University of New Hampshire and earned a PhD in Chemical Physics from Harvard University. Following post doctoral studies at Columbia University, he was appointed to the faculty of Polytechnic University of New York where he rose to Professor of Applied Physics. Also a member of the research faculty of Cornell University Medical College, Department of Nuclear Medicine, Pat authored many academic papers and mentored numerous doctoral students jointly with NY Polytechnic University. After becoming Professor Emeritus, Pat devoted time to family and to many hobbies including reading, cooking, hiking, home repair and armchair politics. Pat lit up the room when he entered and brought energy and positivity to all around him. He was a joy to be with and he will be deeply missed. Pat is survived by his wife of 51 years, Linda Cahill, MD, a child abuse pediatrician at Montefiore Medical Center, Bronx NY, a son Patrick Cahill III, a sister Cornelia Natale, a nephew Brian Natale, Brian's wife Lisa Natale and Brian and Lisa's children Benjamin and Sydney. A Memorial Service will be held at Cassidy-Flynn Funeral Home, Mt. Kisco, NY on October 26, 2019 at 10 am.
