Saint Joseph’s athletics mourns the loss of former Hawk Randy Kiernan '82, who passed away on June 24.

** Funeral arrangements are as follows: Saturday, June 29 - viewing from 10 to 11 a.m. at St. Bede the Venerable Church; Service 11 a.m. at St. Bede the Venerable Church (1071 Holland Rd, Southampton, PA 18966) **

Kiernan donned the Hawk costume for part of the 1980-81 season and the entire 1981-82 season with the SJU men's basketball program. Joining the team in February of 1981, Kiernan was part of the unheralded Hawks' squad that stunned the nation's No. 1 team, DePaul, in the Second Round of the 1981 NCAA Tournament and advanced to the Mideast Regional Final, before falling to eventual champion Indiana. During his senior campaign, Saint Joseph's captured the 1982 East Coast Conference title and returned to the NCAA Tournament.

In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the Randy Kiernan Scholarship Fund at Saint Joseph’s University: https://giving.sju.edu/kiernanscholarship.
