The Rev. John Leonard O’Shea, the former Denver deputy police chief and father of 10 who in June launched a new life as a Catholic priest, died Thursday morning at St. Joseph’s Hospital. He was 69.
Just two days after becoming a priest in June, O’Shea, a widower, had a heart attack that sent him into a coma for a time. Then several weeks later doctors discovered a brain tumor.
Such a shame for so many reasons. I pray that God may welcome Fr. O’Shea’s soul into His loving arms.
