Augustinian, Former Trustee Remembered

The Rev. Anthony M. Genovese, OSA, ’70 CLAS, widely known as Father Mickey, passed away peacefully on July 21. Father Mickey was a former member of the University’s Board of Trustees and had served as pastor of St. Thomas of Villanova Parish, where he oversaw the completion of renovations to the church in the early 1990s; Prior of St. Thomas of Villanova Monastery; and Prior Provincial of the Augustinian Province of St. Thomas of Villanova. Most recently, he served as chaplain of the Villanova Women’s Basketball team.

“Father Mickey was a kind, caring and compassionate person who was a big part of our program,” says Villanova Women’s Basketball Head Coach Harry Perretta ’95 MA. “You could always count on him for his enthusiasm, passion and positive outlook to the players, coaches and support staff. It won’t be the same next year not having him sitting at the end of the bench during our games. We will all miss him dearly.”
