My deepest sympathy is with you and your family. I hope you find peace and comfort in your memories. From the comments you shared below, he was a very special person not only to his family but to many people over the years as well as the community he lived in.

I can't help but share some special memories about my Dad and some of his accomplishments with those who didn't have a chance to know him. Dad graduated from St. Xavier High School in 1951, earned his accounting degree from Bellarmine College in 1955 (the second graduating class of Bellarmine and the first college graduate in his family), and married his high school sweetheart, Maureen Moch, in 1956. Initially employed by the accounting firm of Escott and Grogan, he went on to serve as Deputy General Manager of Finance for the Louisville Regional Airport Authority, then as Chief Financial Officer of Rapid Industries until retirement. Those were his day jobs. In the evenings, Dad operated a tax and accounting practice out of an office in our basement. He would work until Mom tapped on the floor to let him know it was time to come up for bed. He also had great mechanical aptitude as he finished the basement of my childhood home and one day even replaced a water pump on my '76 Olds Cutlass. Who knew an accountant could do those things? If that wasn't enough, he always had an amazing vegetable and flower garden. Dad was a kind, gentle and peace-loving man, yet his voice was heard when as President of the Prestonia Neighborhood Association, he successfully led their legal challenge of the city's blighted condemnation ruling for the airport expansion project. The ruling was overturned on appeal by the Kentucky Supreme Court in 1990. He was subsequently awarded the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Freedom Award in 1993 which recognizes citizens who have dedicated their lives to promoting justice, peace, freedom, non-violence, racial equality, and civic activism. Dad enjoyed traveling, hauling his family around the country in an RV and pontooning on Green River. He even would take groups of us to road races in the RV during the running boom of the 80s. He also had great times with the St Martha Seniors on their many trips. He loved his family above all else and was so proud of his grandchildren. Dad was a member of St. Martha Catholic Church; 55-year member and past President of the National Association of Accountants; Kiwanis International; and a Kentucky Colonel.
The world needs more people like my Dad. He is missed but is finally with Mom.
