Greg, So sorry to hear about your dad. I'm pretty sure he was in my mom's (Carolyn Welch) class at Central. She passed 2 years ago.

I was saddened to learn of Eugene's death. I first remember him when he would read all of those readings on Holy Saturday services at St. Teresa. He had a great reading voice; I can still hear his voice. I don't know that he missed many Masses over the years, as I would regularly see him leaving St. Teresa, passing the choir, after the 11:00 Mass. I think it a loss, not only for the family, but for the Catholic community. My prayers go up for him and the family. Richard Carey, Choir Director
