Fr. Ray Otto has died of unknown causes this weekend.
I received this email from my sister :
Fr. Ray died today, Saturday. Thursday he went to the hospital and said he wasn’t feeling well. They sent him home. Friday his tongue was swollen and he could barely speak. Finally, Fr. Willfred couldn’t take it anymore and brought him back to the hospital where they rushed him to Sioux Falls, but he didn’t make it. His heart stopped on the way to Sioux Falls. Mom thinks the funeral will be Wednesday.
Fr. Ray was the priest at St. Charles Parish in Big Stone City, SD. He was also a great guy and friend. We will miss him.
