Passed on

Dad passed peacefully this afternoon around 1:30pm with Mom by his bedside. He had a restful night last night so Mom and Aunt Felicia got to sleep all night as well.

We have made arrangements for the viewing and funeral. The viewing will be held at McComas Funeral Home. The address is: 1317 Cokesbury Road, Abingdon, MD 21009. Viewing will be held on Wednesday, March 18th, from 2-4pm and 7-9pm. The funeral mass will be held at St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church, 1450 Abingdon Road, Abingdon, MD 21009, at 11am on Thursday, March 19th.

Dad was active with both the Boy Scouts and The Knights of Columbus. If anyone wishes to make a donation to either of these organizations in lieu of flowers, that would please please him and the entire family.

Thank you to everyone who prayed with us and sent good thoughts our way during Dad's battle with cancer. Many of you have sent such kind words to us already that show us that we were not the only ones who loved and had the utmost respect for Dad.

I am so sorry about your dad! I can't believe it! It seems like just yesterday we were on the softball field!

Please stay in touch

So sorry to hear about your father. This is one of the most difficult things our Lord ever asks us to do. I was just thinking about you the other day. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
One of my most vivid memories of your parents was the time I was sleeping over at your house and they were making sausage. I tell everyone that story!
Take care and let me know if you need anything.
