Palladino, Robert J., Fr.

Fr. Robert J. Palladino, 83, of Sandy , Oregon, died suddenly at his home on February 26, 2016.

Fr. Palladino was born and raised in Albuquerque and entered the Trappist Monastery at Pecos shortly after graduation from St. Mary High in 1950. He remained a monk until the late 60's, by which time the monastery had relocated to Oregon.

After leaving the Order, he married and taught calligraphy at Reed College for many years, where one of his students was Steve Jobs. Some years after his wife died in 1987, he was reinstated as a priest and served a number of parishes in the Portland area until his death.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Catherine Halverson Palladino; his parents, Michael and Armida Palladino; brothers Horace, John and Michael; sisters Lorraine and Armida Palladino, Anita Carter and Florence Pavioni.

He is survived by his son, Eric, of Sandy, OR and numerous nieces and nephews.

Funeral Mass is scheduled for 11:00 on Friday, March 11, 2016 at St. Mary's Cathedral in Portland, OR.
