He also served as chaplain to the Sisters of Notre Dame in Park Hills. At the time of his retirement, Father Bob stated “I have enjoyed every assignment I had. I never wanted to leave any of them. If I have to find a common thread through all of this, to be a priest gives you an opportunity to be significant in the lives of other people in what I consider the most important dimension of human life; their relationship with God. I’d call the life of a priest adventurous and exciting and full.” Visitation will be at Mother of God Church in Covington, KY at 10:00 am on Saturday `March 12, followed by Mass at 12:05.Memorials are suggested to Parish Kitchen, PO Box 1234, Covington, KY 41012 or Emergency Shelter of NKY, 436 W. 13th St,.
