GERMANO COPPA (oblato)

 

BORN:  Biella, VC 6.11.1901

DECEASED: Udine 5.12.1976

AGE: 75

 

Born in Piedmont he left for Friuli to exercise his craft as a dyer. After losing his wife, at 40 years of age, he asked to enter our congregation as an oblate. He was an honest and straightforward Christian. He lived with us for almost 20 years. He was an exact and most faithful administrator; he was spontaneous and short in his speech, pleasant with everybody, strict with himself.

He left all his savings to our Missions.
