Franciscan Fr. Elgar Nadon, OFM, who dedicated his life to missionary service, died Feb. 14 at Christ Hospital. He was 82. Fr. Nadon had completed 49 years of ministry in the Philippines when he retired to St. Margaret Hall in Cincinnati in November 2014. He was born in Dearborn, Mich., one of three children of Leopold and Clara Nadon. He graduated from Duns Scotus College in Southfield, Mich. and received training in theology at Holy Family Theologate in Oldenburg, Ind., and St. Leonard College in Centerville, Ohio. Following ordination in 1959 he was assigned to Cincinnati's Roger Bacon High School, St. Francis Seraph Parish and Corpus Christi Parish before going to the Philippines. Studies in Manila in 1965 led to two decades of pastoral ministry on the island of Leyte. From 1984-1990 he was part of a Franciscan Mission to Muslims, and subsequently served as a member of a renewal center team and a chaplain. Visitation begins at 4 p.m. Feb. 20 at St. Clement Church in St. Bernard until the Mass of Christian burial at 5:30 p.m. Interment is at 10 a.m. Saturday at St. Mary Cemetery in St. Bernard. Fr.
