There will be a limited gathering of people at one time on Wednesday, March 18, 2020 from 3:00 – 7:00 PM at Hite Funeral Home. Due to the concerns about large public social events, the family certainly understands if friends or family elect not to attend. Funeral services will be private for immediate family only on Thursday at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Waterloo. Burial will follow at St. Michael’s Catholic Cemetery. Memorial donations may be made to Cancer Services of Allen County.
