Eternal Rest John Walsh Benefactor of the Institute

Posted by Br David Hawke on 2 April 2019

Please pray for the eternal rest of John Walsh, Benefactor of the Institute who passed away early this morning after a short illness.

John was pre-deceased by his beloved wife Iris and his brother Fr Hugh Walsh OFM.

After completing many years as Bursar at Oakhill College, he graciously accepted the position of District Bursar when I was Visitor back in the late 1990's.

We remember him as one of nature's gentlemen, a committed Catholic and a man who was dedicated totally to his work with the Brothers.

John's wish was that he not have a funeral and that he be buried with Iris at a private family graveside burial on a date yet to be determined.

The only contact is John's email which is being accessed by his son Hugh: pjwalsh32@bigpond.com

May John rest in peace.
