MEADVILLE — The Rev. Robert P. Fedor, 83, died Friday, Nov. 22, 2013, at the Marquette Hospice House of Meadville.

He was born Sept. 14, 1930, in Cleveland, Ohio, the son of the late Julius and Margaret Repas Fedor.

After attending St. Margaret Elementary School and Benedictine High School in Cleveland, he served our country in the U.S. Marine Corps and then attended John Carroll University in Cleveland before joining St. Mark Seminary in 1955.

After studies at Gannon College, Erie, and St. Bonaventure University, New York, he received his major seminary formation at Theological College in Washington, D.C., and was ordained to the priesthood for the Diocese of Erie on May 11, 1961, in St. Peter Cathedral by Bishop Edward McManaman.

His last assignment before retirement was as senior associate at St. Agatha Parish in Meadville from 1999 to 2005.
