On 20 June 2009, Fr. Tim Vakoc passed away. Fr. Tim was gravely injured by an IED while serving in Iraq in 2004.
Fr. Tim was our pastor during a large part of our time in Heidelberg, Germany.
He taught our sons “See-Food” at our dinner table (they just loved it!)
He and Chief used to have discussions on theology, the Mass and more. They were always friendly, always loving and always animated! 😀
Please pray for the repose of the soul of Fr. Tim and for the comfort of his family and friends.
While stationed in Bosnia, Father Vakoc told his sister,
“The safest place for me to be
is in the center of God’s will,
and if that is in the line of fire,
that is where I will be.”
May his soul,
and the souls of all the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God,
rest in peace.
Good bye, Father Tim. Pray for us.
