I am Louis Studer, OMI, Superior of the Oblate community in Washington DC where David Power has been living the past couple years. A couple weeks ago, David had surgery for cancerous tumors on his liver. The surgery seemed to get all the tumors but because of complications of breathing due to a lung problem, David died this afternoon [June 19th] at 4:20 p.m. The funeral Mass will likely be this Monday morning in the crypt of the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, at 10:30 a.m. with wake at 9 a.m. also in the crypt.
Please let anyone else know whom you know would appreciate receiving this news.
David was a great gift of God to the Oblates, to the academic community, to his family, and to anyone who ever had the privilege of meeting him.
Louis Studer, OMI
May he rest in peace.
