On Thursday, August 8, about 10:00 pm, Marcos Tun, father of Leonel and Rafael Tun and father-in-law of Emi Tun, passed away. He was 91 years old.
Marcos played an important role in the early years of the Mission as a confidant and advisor to Fr. Greg. Despite his modest education, Marcos was a catechist with the church for years, accompanying Fr. Greg on visits to the communities surrounding San Lucas.
We are currently blessed with leadership provided from two of his children: Dr. Rafael Tun, the medical director of our healthcare program, and Leonel Tun, the Executive Director of the Mission. Additionally, his daughter-in-law, Emi Tun, is Director of our Charity with Dignity program and one of his daughters, Sandra Tun, is a teacher in the Colegio.
Our deepest condolences go out to the Tun family as they journey through these days of prayer, remembrance and celebration of a full life, well-lived in service to others.
