Obituary

It is with our deepest sadness that we share the peaceful passing of our dad, Pop-o, who for 85 years quietly touched the lives of many including his sons Rick (Laura), and Dennis (Susan), his grandchildren Brian, Kara and Leslie and the extended family of his current wife Nancy and her children. He is preceded in death by his wife of 52 years Margaret Hoye. A mentor to many, the most memorable moments with Pop-o were the numerous times we would run into people who came up to him and thanked him for giving them the opportunity to change their lives because of an encounter with him as a member of the South Euclid, Ohio, Police...

A mentor to many, the most memorable moments with Pop-o were the numerous times we would run into people who came up to him and thanked him for giving them the opportunity to change their lives because of an encounter with him as a member of the South Euclid, Ohio, Police Department. Dad shared a special relationship with the Blessed Virgin Mary, saying a rosary every day since he was 9 years old. He has been welcomed with open arms by Her and her Son, Jesus. In lieu of flowers, please make donates to the 100 Club of Arizona in honor of our dad's 25 yrs of service as a police officer. Services will be Friday April 4 at 10:00 am at St. George's Parish, 300 E 16th Ave, Apache Junction, AZ. Arrangements under the direction of Valley of the Sun Mortuary & Cemetery, Chandler, AZ.
