Afterward, their marriage was blessed with six sons and two daughters. All eight of their children attend Catholic parochial schools in Lincoln and graduated from Pius X High School.

He was a member of the Nebraska Society of CPAs and the AICPA, serving on numerous committees and boards.

Excerpts from student thank you letters

“I would like to thank you so much for your generosity in giving this scholarship to help students like myself obtain a Catholic education. I want you to know the scholarship will be put to good use helping pay my tuition as I finish my academic career at Pius X High School. I will do all I can to live up to the expectations you have set for recipients of this scholarship…

During my senior year, I will be taking my first advanced placement class, AP Calculus, which will be a challenge for me. I am also taking Spanish, theology, accounting, psychology, and business law in addition to the other required classes. Along with academics at Pius, I am involved in student council, ambassadors, community service club, and Cathedral GodTeens. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, working at Hy-Vee as a grocery clerk, and volunteering at the Alzheimer’s Association and Matt Talbot Kitchen & Outreach. I hope all these experiences in high school will help prepare me for college, future careers, and life in general.

I have not yet decided which college I will be attending; however, I do plan on staying in Lincoln. I would like to study elementary education, so I can share my knowledge and gifts with younger children. I think it would be great to someday work at a Catholic elementary school, so I can see each child grow and live their faith.

Thank you again for the scholarship as I continue my Catholic education. I deeply appreciate your kindness and generosity…”


“[We] would like to thank you for your generosity in providing a scholarship for [our son]…We also want to thank you for realizing the importance of a Catholic education for so many other Pius students over the years. In a world that can be hostile to people of faith, it is good to know that others see the value in making sacrifices to provide the best for our future generations.

[My husband] and I are constantly seeing God’s blessings in our lives in so many ways. Your gift to our son and family is one of those blessings. Often we are reminded our “big” family is truly a “really big” family. Each person who we sit next to in the pews of Cathedral, the friends our children walk down the halls of the grade school, or the teachers who teach and encourage our children in the classrooms at Pius. We are all one family in Christ. Praying for and working with each other to provide a faith filled foundation.

We pray for you. God Bless You.”
