In Sympathy

We wanted to let the many friends and former co-workers of Charles McCarthy, former director of the Office for Protection from Research Risks (the precursor of the Office of Human Research Protections) know that his beloved wife, Estelle, passed away on Easter Sunday.

Charlie wanted the IRB/HRPP community to know of his loss, and so we’ve included the plans for the wake and service below, as well as Charlie’s contact information for those of you who wish to contact him.

A viewing will take place from 2:00 to 4:00 PM, and from 6:30 to 8:30 PM, on Friday, April 9, at Bliley’s Funeral Home, 8510 Staples Mill Road, Richmond, VA.

Funeral services will begin at 3:00 PM ET on Saturday, April 10, at Ginter Park Presbyterian Church, 3601 Seminary Avenue, Richmond, VA.

The burial will take place in a small town near Selma, AL, at a later date.

Charlie’s address is: Westminster Canterbury, 1500 Westbrook Court, Apt. 3149, Richmond, VA 23227.

Please note: Estelle McCarthy’s obituary was published this morning, and we include it here for anyone who might be interested in learning more about this remarkable woman
