Bio

I am a Catholic Priest of the Diocese of Buffalo, New York. I attended St. Jonn Vianney Seminary (Now Christ the King) East Aurora, New York and was ordained a priest of the diocese of Buffalo on May 20, 1967. I served on the Buffalo Missionary Apostolate at St. Isadore, East Otto.
I was assistant pastor of St. Bernard (1968-69); St. Adalbert (1969-70) both in Buffalo; St. Mary, Lockport (1970); St Patrick, Salamanca (1970-77); Our Lady of Victory, Lackawanna(1977-1981); and St. Bernadette, Orchard Park (1981-82). I was administrator of St. Nicholas, North Java for a short time in 1982 and then became associate pastor at Most Precious Blood, Angola until 1984 when I was named pastor of St. Isaac Jogues, Sherman and St. Thomas More, Ripley.
In 1989, I was transferred to St. Aloysius; Springville. While in this parish I made the parish school into a regional school and was appointed Canonical Administrator.
Lastly, I was pastor of St. Joseph Parish, Fredonia, New York from 1999 to 2016 and canonical administrator of Northern Chautauqua Catholic School for part of that time. I retired from the parish in 2016 and reside in Bishop Head residence in Lackawanna.
I currently help out in parishes where I celebrate Mass and also had been named temporary administrator of Blessed Sacrament, Tonawanda for six weeks in 2016 and Nativity, Orchard Park for four weeks in 2017.

I am documenting the places of burial of our Buffalo diocesan priests.

Most of the research for the obituaries of the priests comes from the Catholic papers of Buffalo: the Catholic Union and Times, the Echo, the Union and Echo, and their successor papers. Some information comes from local news articles, parish directories and personal memories. I also thank family members and friends who have sent me additional information and/or have transferred memorials to me. You can send me biographical information with the edit tab. If you have some personal memory of a particular priest, leave a flower with that information.

I have thought about whether to post the priests that I was unable to find where they were buried. Some places of burial were not mentioned in my sources. I searched for all of them as best I could. I decided to post them anyway because I could then complete the names of priests in the necrology of the diocese.

If the priest has "No Cemetery" and you know of the place of burial, I would appreciate the information. You can also send that information via the edit tab of the Priest. A special thanks to those who have used the edit tab to update memorials.
