News Death Notice

FECKE, Benjamin Robert age 3, son of Robert M. and Jennifer L. (Comer) Fecke was born Thursday, December 31, 2009, and returned home with the angels on Tuesday September 24, 2013. Those that knew Ben know what a fighter he was throughout his short life. Through so many challenges, he surprised everyone with his strength. At the end of his life here with us, it was clear that he was ready to return home to heaven and live in a pain free, joyful eternity. His time with us was a gift, and he will be missed everyday by his parents, his little sister Grace, and a new little sibling that will be joining the family soon. He is also survived by Grandma Joyce Comer of Englewood, and Grandma Kathy and Grandpa Ted Fecke of Huber Heights. He also had multiple aunts, uncles, and cousins that encouraged and supported Ben during his brief life. A Mass of Christian Burial led by Fr. Jim Manning will be held Monday September 30th at 11am at St. Mary's Catholic Church, 115 S. Main Street, Franklin, OH 45005 with burial to follow at Calvary Cemetery, 1625 Calvary Drive, Dayton, OH, 45409.
