ANTHONY PANTIN 1929-2000 (766 words)
Pantin's housekeeper Ada Mars had summoned Michael Pantin when the Archbishop didn't respond to her wake-up call at 7.15 a.m.
Pereira said Pantin, who "normally gets up early', had asked to be awakened at that time because he wanted to rest a little longer before officiating at a mass observing the Tenth Covenant Day at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception at 9 a.m.
Pantin himself noted last year that there was no question of "lobbying" for the approved candidates.
