WOODBURY TOWNSHIP, PENN. – The two men who were killed Thursday morning in a Pennsylvania plane crash were traveling to Notre Dame.
The school says Stephen Grady and James J. Durkin were officers in the Notre Dame Club of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
The plane took off from Lancaster, bound for South Bend. The two men were traveling for a Notre Dame Alumni Association Leadership Conference this weekend.
Grady was the president of the Notre Dame Club of Harrisburg and Durkin was the treasurer.
University President Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C. is offering condolences to the mens’ families.
“All of us in the Notre Dame family are shocked and saddened by this tragic news,” Father Jenkins said. “My prayers are with Steve and Jim’s families. We grieve with them and ask for God’s blessings during this time of sorrow.”
Grady graduated from Notre Dame in 1974. Durkin was a member of the club but not an alumnus.
