Father Antonio Checo dies at 67 of coronavirus in same hospital where he once worked01:51
Father Antonio Checo was a rector at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church before becoming a mental health clinician at Mt. Sinai Queens hospital after 9/11. Two years later, he earned his master’s degree in theology and became an ordained minister. He died earlier this month of complications from the coronavirus in the same hospital he served for years.
