Rev. A. C. Kunz

The Rev. A.C. KUNZ, aged 84 years, assistant pastor of St. Kieren's Roman 
Catholic Church, Fifty-fourth and Carnegie Streets, died yesterday afternoon 
at 1:55 o'clock at Mercy hospital.  His death is a great shock to his 
parishioners, as some did not even know he was sick or at the hospital.  
Father KUNZ became ill on the street only last Sunday, and was removed in the 
hospital that day, where it was found his vitality was very low and his death 
occurred yesterday.  Father KUNZ was born in Jersey City.  He attended 
Calvary College at Fond du Lac, Wis., and later graduated at St. Vincent's 
Seminary, at Beatty, Pa.  He was ordained there in December 1904, was 
assigned as an assistant pastor at St. Peter's Church, South Side, later 
being sent to St. Mary's at Beaver Falls, and to a mission at Donora.  One 
year ago he was made assistant to the Rev. Father DOYLE of St. Kieren's 
Church.  He is survived by his father, a brother and two sisters, who live at 
Jersey City.
