He was blessed with 34 nieces and nephews, 27 great nieces and nephews, 2 great-great nieces, 23 godchildre­n, many beloved cousins, and faithful friends. His greatest love in life was his soul-mate Pattie and his children. Nothing was more important to him than family; an example that his loving parents set for him as a child.

and Uncle Mike. His most

beloved ministry was to the Latino community of St. Ladislas that he considered close family and friends. Special thank you to all of the doctors and nurses at
