TOLEDO, OH (Press Release) -

Auxiliary Bishop Emeritus Robert W. Donnelly died July 21 at his home in Toledo at age 83.

Funeral arrangements have not yet been released. 

"Bishop Donnelly was deeply loved and respected by his fellow priests," said Father Charles Ritter, diocesan administrator, to the Catholic Chronicle. "His selection as our auxiliary bishop in 1984 was received with great rejoicing. Members of those parishes in which he ministered remember him fondly as a gentle, caring and wise man, a wonderful shepherd. The Diocese of Toledo is as impoverished by his passing as we have been enriched by his ministry among us and his friendship with us all."

Bishop Donnelly retired in 2006 but remained beloved by many. 

During his career, the bishop served as assistant pastor at Fostoria St. Wendelin, Toledo St. Charles and Toledo St. Clement. He was pastor at Landeck St. John , Spencerville St. Patrick and Sandusky St. Mary. He also served the diocese as Ecumenical Commission chairperson in 1973, pro-synodal consultant in 1974, and as a member of the diocesan Board of Consultors in 1977.
