After the Mary Cross Tippmann Foundation took over the old St. Felix Monastery in 2010, Rob Mayo moved in with his wife Karen to be the resident property manager. While working at St. Felix, he was known for his friendly personality and willingness to explain the work being done to renovate and restore the historic complex. Tragically, he passed away in June of 2012 at the age of 51 after sustaining injuries from a motorcycle accident. Shortly after, a scholarship was created to preserve his memory in our community.
Currently, Rob’s scholarship is being funded by the proceeds of the annual Nun Run 5k and Brother Boogie 10k held at the St. Felix Catholic Center every May. Donations are still being sought to make his scholarship permanent.
