The Ven. Alan Koller, RIP

Dear Friends in Christ,

It is my duty to inform you that The Ven. Alan Koller has entered eternal life. He served our diocese for many years as parish priest, archdeacon and Vicar General of the Armed Forces.

Originally ordained in the Reformed Church, Archdeacon Koller was subsequently ordained to the diaconate and the priesthood by the Right Reverend George D. Langberg. He served churches in Schuylerville and Brooklyn, New York. He was appointed archdeacon of the Diocese of the Northeast by the Right Reverend Brian R. Marsh in 2009. In 2011, he was appointed Vicar General for the Armed Forces. He served in both positions until his death. Archdeacon Koller received his Th.d in theology from Fordham University.

Archdeacon Koller proudly served his country for many years as a military chaplain. He retired from the United States Army Chaplains Corps with the rank of full Colonel. According to his wishes, he was buried with full military honors.

Archdeacon Koller leaves behind his wife, Barbara, and two sons: Stephen and The Reverend Deacon David Koller.

Alan Koller

 

 

Alan Koller++ was a priest to the last. Less than a week ago, he responded to the needs of a man who called out for a priest in the hospital Emergency Room. Archdeacon Koller, who had made an emergency visit to the hospital himself, reached out to the man who was in considerable distress. After speaking with the man for twenty minutes, Father Koller's pastoral care calmed the man. His priestly dedication, as well as his dedication to his church and country, are models for us all.

 

 

"Rest eternal grant him, O Lord, and light perpetual shine upon him."

Faithfully in Christ,

+Brian
