Our family has known Father Quinn for many years at Our Lady of Mercy. We are lucky to have known his humor, his care and support. He loved my mom's tripe soup and would request care packages of it from time to time. He will go on in our memories; for this we are thankful; and in our hearts. May he rest in peace.

I have known Fr. Quinn for many years and I'm very grateful to him for his hospitality at Our Lady of Mercy Parish in the Bronx N.Y. and Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Mount Vernon, N.Y. in which I helped him during the summers. Always jovial and ready to help everyone, especially Latin American people, and an excellent preacher in the Spanish language. At the end of his life he suffered much because of human injustice, but he remained firm in his vocation. Rest in peace!
