David Mall, RIP

The pro-life movement lost a great friend with the passing of David Mall on January 24, 2019 at the age of 83. Here is a link to his obituary; at that link, there is a tribute wall that includes remembrances from Jeff Koloze, Richard Stith, and others.  Here is a link to a piece by Dave Andrusko in the National Right to Life News.

David was a tireless advocate for life. He was an enthusiastic participant and important contributor to the annual meetings of University Faculty for Life. He will be sorely missed.

His funeral Mass will be celebrated today in Iowa on the feast of St. Thomas Aquinas. Please keep David and his family in your prayers.
