Fr. James Edward Pfeifer, OMI, son of Steve and Marie Louisa, “Fr. Jim”, priest of Jesus Christ and Oblate of Mary Immaculate, a real man’s man and a real Priest’s priest, came gently, quietly and “plumb wore out” to the end of the trail, finishing the long journey and great adventure of his life, dying at the old Guadalupe Church, which he just finished working so hard and enthusiastically to repair and expand. He’s been “almost home” for the last few months.
He was preceded in death by Frances L. Trcalek, Stephen Pfeifer, Ronald T. Pfeifer, Charles J. Pfeifer, Catherine R. Haden and his dog, Paco, who were already waiting with the porch light on to welcome him home.
