Chris Farley would have been 50 years old

A nice post by Farley's alma mater from Saturday


From wiki
Farley was born in Madison, Wisconsin.  Farley's family are traditionally Roman Catholic, and Farley attended numerous Catholic schools in his hometown, including Edgewood High School of the Sacred Heart.  According to Joel Murray, a fellow Second City cast member, Farley would "always make it to Mass". Many of his summers were spent as a camper and counselor at Red Arrow Camp, near Minocqua, Wisconsin.  Farley graduated from Marquette University in 1986, with a concentration in communications and theater. After college, he worked with his father at the Scotch Oil Company in Madison. He got his start in professional comedy at the Ark Improv Theatre in Madison, and at the Improv Olympic theater in Chicago.
"The church is not a museum of saints, but a hospital for sinners."  "I see the church as a field hospital after battle."  - Pope Francis

  1. The book "The Chris Farley Show: A Biography in Three Acts" has a lot of details of Chris being involved in St. Malachy's parish in NYC, doing volunteer work that no one knew about while he was alive.
