Note:  Some pictures from the funerals of SK Eugene Kunz and Lady Anita Fong thanks to Sir Knight Marco Ferrero, Grand Knight of Sacramento Council 953.

From SK Marco:  We bid farewell to our Fellow 953 Brother SK Eugene Kunz (at Nicoletti’s Funeral Home) who served as a Knight of Columbus for over 70 years. 

Please keep in your prayers the repose of their souls and prayers for their families who are dealing with the losses.


Below is from the Funeral at St Paul Catholic Church for Lady Anita Fong, wife of Sir Knight Jerry Fong, PFN.

The attendance of The Knights of Columbus means so much to the families that you can feel the gratitude and heartfelt happiness to know their loved ones are remembered but also recognized during their passings.  The utmost respect to Assembly 50 who has carried the cross of representation and ceremony at a time when we are low in physical numbers to continue the works especially since our Council 953 was founded in 1905.  It is with each Brother’s efforts to continue keeping our Councils and Assemblies going as we slowly return back to an active level as we continue to evolve into these new times.  Brothers unable to currently physically participate, we keep you in prayers and appreciate your prayers of support back. 

Sir Knight Marco Ferrero, GK, Sacramento Council 953
