Born on January 19, 1890 in Scranton, he decided to enter the Passionists. He went to the Passionist Preparatory Seminary at St. Mary’s, Dunkirk, New York. At almost seventeen years old he entered the novitiate at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and professed his vows on October 6, 1907. He was ordained May 26, 1915. He was assigned as professor of civics at the Passionist Preparatory School, Baltimore, Maryland. There he contracted Meniere’s disease. A speech difficulty also was a problem. In effect, this limited his ministry. Later he came down with cancer in his foot. In 1951 his leg was amputated above the knee. He spent much of his last years in a wheel chair from which he was able to say his liturgy. After five months a Mercy Hospital, Springfield, Massachusetts he died.
