    very active with his son's baseball, and spent many hours at the
    baseball diamond as most of his boys played for the Little Chute Babe

    Church many years ago. He attended morning mass at St. John's every
    day except Saturday, and was active in the St. John's Food for the
    Poor Program and the Missions right up to the day he passed away.
