Shillong, Aug. 22. ARESE, Milan, (C.M. Paul) - Fr. Joseph Marchesi, veteran missionary in India, and hero at Savio Juniorate Mawlai, the aspirantate of then Assam province died on 20 August 2012 at Arese (Milan), at the age of 97.
''A confrere of the Arese-Community, don Luca Pozzoni (who is doing his retreat with me at Avigliana, in Piedmont shared the sad news with me, this morning after the meditation, preached by the retired Cardinal of Turin, Severino Poletto,'' says Fr Thomas Mylaparampil, veteran missionary in Argentina and now resident chaplain to the Salesian Sisters at Casa san Giuseppe, Nizza Monferrato, Northern Italy.

Fr Mylaparampil adds, ''the name and the benevolence of Fr Marchesi will never be erased from the heart and mind of each and every one of us!''

Fr Marchesi, known for his musical and theatrical extravaganzas while in Shillong, was for several years Secretary to the General Councilor for Missions in Rome before he retired as chaplain to the old age home for Salesians at Arese near Milan. He was also the refuge of visiting Indian Salesians on their trips to the Pisana, Rome.
