FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) - Bishop Emeritus John D'Arcy, who retired in 2010 after leading the Fort Wayne-South Bend Catholic Diocese for 24 years, has died. He was 80 years old.
Diocese spokesman Sean McBride says D'Arcy died Sunday of cancer at his home in Fort Wayne. D'Arcy announced last month he was battling a rare form of cancer, saying he had been diagnosed with cancer in his lungs and brain. He said the disease was discovered when he went to a Boston-area hospital after feeling ill while visiting relatives.
Bishop Kevin Rhoades, who succeeded D'Arcy, asked followers to pray for D'Arcy, his family, and loved ones. Rhoades says D'Arcy faced death with deep faith and a trust in God.
Funeral arrangements are pending.
