A member of the California Bar for more than 20 years, he practiced law in San Francisco for several years and served as a canon lawyer for 30 years in the diocesan tribunals of the Archdiocese of San Francisco and the Dioceses of Sacramento and Monterey. In 1984, he was elected Vice-President of the Canon Law Society and assumed the role of President in 1985.

 In lieu of flowers, his family asks that gifts in his honor go to Mercy Foundation to benefit Mercy General Hospital (3400 Data Drive, Rancho Cordova, CA 95670) or the Sacramento Public Library Foundation to benefit literacy and libraries (P.O. Box 1168, Sacramento, CA 95812).

Please remember Father Folmer, his family, and his friends in your prayers. May he rest in God's peace.
