Mr. Corcoran, made fountains

When the fountains dance at Paramount's Kings Island, they reflect the career of Thomas J. ''Cork'' Corcoran, who designed and built the fanciful pools there. He also built the fountains at Kings Dominion in Richmond, Va., and other theme parks in Canada and around the world.

Mr. Corcoran, a lifelong Cincinnati resident living part-time in Del Ray Beach, Fla., died Monday. He was 76.

The 1941 St. Xavier High School graduate attended Georgetown University until enlisting in the U.S. Air Force, flying 29 missions as a B-17 waist gunner with the 8th Air Force 351st Bomb Group, stationed in England.

After farming and building homes in Clermont County, he distributed Mexican terrazzo tile and manufactured concrete products.

In 1960 he founded Fountain Specialists Co. in Milford and became internationally known for fountain design and component manufacturing. Mr. Corcoran is survived by his wife Gloria of 53 years; a son, T. Jeffrey Corcoran of Cincinnati; three daughters, Christina L. Smith and Kimberlee A. Corcoran, both of Cincinnati, and Colleen A. Howard of Pretty Creek, Mont.; and four grandchildren.

No visitation is scheduled. A memorial service is scheduled for 10 a.m. Friday at Christ the King Church in Mount Lookout.

Jay Heinlein, former U.C. professor

Jay Clare Heinlein, 87, a widely respected political science professor, died Sat urday at his home in Wyoming after a lengthy battle with Parkinson's disease.

''He was literally legendary on the campus as the expert on the American presidency and the United States Supreme Court,'' said one of his admiring students, former Cincinnati Council Member Tyrone Yates.

Mr. Heinlein taught political science at the University of Cincinnati for 30 years. He was uniquely prepared for the job because of the breadth of his education, Yates said. Mr. Heinlein had a bachelor's in philosophy, a degree in law and a Ph.D. in political science.

''He was very fond of his students, and he took an interest in every student,'' said his wife, Dorothy. Mr. Heinlein died on the 70th anniversary of their first date. They were married for 62 years, following an eight-year courtship. ''He was just a very right-living, right-thinking person,'' she said.

Mr. Heinlein served in the Army as an officer from 1943 to 1946.

He is the brother of the late Robert A. Heinlein, author of ''Stranger in a Strange Land,'' who is known as the ''dean of science fiction.''

Mr. Heinlein is also survived by his son, James Robert Heinlein, of Anderson Township; his sister, Louise Bacchus, of Albuquerque, N.M.; and two grandsons. Funeral services are private. Memorial gathering: 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday at the UC Faculty Club. Memorials: VITAS Hospice, PO Box 110, Miami, Fla., 33131-2002. Vielhauer-Clepper Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.

John Bradley Cook, offered sympathetic ear

John Bradley Cook, a computer technician with diverse computer talents and a willingness to lend a compassionate ear, died Dec. 28. He was 35.

The late Mr. Cook, known as John to his friends and Brad to his family, lived in Batavia and was employed by Sarcom as a senior field service technician.

''John was well liked by his coworkers and was very technically sound,'' said John Lathan, operations manager for Sarcom. ''He constantly kept up on new things and was constantly reading and improving.

''John offered me a lot of options in that there were so many areas he had knowledge in.''

Mr. Cook was the son of John H. Cook, the legendary Cincinnati tennis coach who helped shape the careers of several nationally ranked stars.

''He was a very quiet, private young man with a great deal of caring and compassion for his friends and family,'' his father said. ''He cared about the simple things in life. He played Frisbee golf; he liked to go hiking; he liked to sit down with a good book; he liked to sit out on the deck with a good cigar and watch the sun go down.

''He always had a shoulder for friends to lean on, a sympathetic ear for listening. He would do anything to show support, even if it was just showing somebody he cared about them as an individual.''

Mr. Cook was a graduate of Middletown High School and Cincinnati Technical Institute.

He also is survived by his mother, Harriett Cook, and a sister, Laurinda Rae Bond of Cleveland.

A private service was held at Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Montgomery.

Memorials may be made to the charity of the donor's choice.
