Father Joe Lanzalaco, C.S.B., passed away on July 24, 2015 at the age of 65 years young in Rochester, New York. Father Joe first came to Andrean as an associate or Mr. Lanzalaco in 1985 and was ordained in 1987 and returned as our own Father Joe where he taught theology, coached softball and served as a dean of students. While serving at Andrean he also served as Catholic Chaplain at Indiana State Prison, with a special ministry to death row inmates.

During his time at Andrean 1985-2000 Father Joe touched the lives of so many students, faculty and parents. He will always be remembered fondly for his pony-tale, leather gloves, sense of humor, infectious laugh, great smile, his singing during his homily (ACDC) and kind heart. During his tenure at Andrean and afterwards while at St. John Fisher College in Rochester, Father Joe was often asked to and was extremely honored to marry many of his former students of Andrean.

We are all better off for knowing this great man and thank God for sending him to Andrean. Please keep Father Joe and his family, and the Basilian Fathers in your thoughts and prayers.
