Thomas F. Roeser - Requiescat In Pace

Thomas Roeser of Chicago passed away yesterday at the age of 82.  He was a contributer to the Chicago Sun-Times and founded the online Chicago Daily Observer.  He served as a vice president of Quaker Oats Company.  All agreed that he wasn't afraid to voice his conservative convictions.

He was also a devoted family man and devout Catholic.  As such, he was a co-founder of Catholic Citizens of Illinois, a member of the Catholic Media Coalition, to which this blog also belongs.

Until a few weeks ago, he was writing regularly on his own blog in defense of the Faith.  He also contributed regularly to the Wanderer, a Catholic weekly.

I never had opportunity to meet him in person, although we chatted online once or twice.  May God grant him eternal repose and consolation for his family.
