So sorry to hear about his death. He married my husband & I in 1972, in Meyersdale, PA. He also baptized by two children. God rest his soul.

I pray for Father George's soul and for the comfort of his family and friends. He was our high school principal for my first two years at Bishop McCort. We loved him very much and I know he was a very good priest.
