He did his novitiate in Gemona (UD). He obtained a degree in classical arts at the University of Urbino. He served for some years in the parish of Milan (S. Croce), after which he went to teach as a professor in Verona, Udine and Gemona.  He was gifted with sensitivity, intelligence and generosity towards everybody. He suffered much after the disasters caused by the 1976 earthquake of Gemona. He lost the clarity of mind and bodily energy.

A long illness marked the seal on his religious vocation.

He was buried in Gemona at the presence of his old mother. He loved mountains and mountaineering.
