My Novice Master and Rector leaves for Heavenly abode

When i entered the Capuchin Order in 1979 Fr. Remigius was in Frangipet, Mangalore as a novice master. His very appearance was very fatherly. He went on to be my spiritual father, Novice Master, Philosophy Rector and then followed me all through the formation. He was my professor of Theology in Mysore. a great friar, teacher, formator and Leader. He was provincial for number of years. He has guided the destiny of KGM. We are grateful to him. Father Remigius we will miss you, your laughter and jokes.
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. From now on there is reserved for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will give me on that day, and not only to me but also to all who have longed for his appearing. (2 Timothy 4:7-8)
