Please remember in your prayers Bob Hilgers ’32, who died March 3. At 105, Hilgers was thought to be St. Thomas’ oldest living alumnus.
Hilgers was profiled in the Spring 2014 edition of St. Thomas magazine. In the article titled “A Witness to Our History,” when asked what he is most proud of in his life, Hilgers remarks, without hesitation, “My family.”
Mass of Christian Burial was held 10:30 a.m. Saturday, March 7, at St. John Vianney Catholic Church in Fairmont. Visitation was one hour prior to the service at the church.
