After his retirement, Driscoll and his wife, Maria, spent nine years in Sarasota, Fla., where he worked as a part-time consultant in shareholder relations and enjoyed spending considerable time on the tennis court. He and Maria traveled widely in retirement and eventually settled in Boulder, Colo.

He is survived by Maria; his sons Clement and David; his daughters Elizabeth Boyle, Anita Feiger, and Jean Driscoll; his brother, Edmond Driscoll; 14 grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
