NASHVILLE (AP) — The Roman Catholic Diocese of Nashville says diocese Bishop David R. Choby has died of complications from a blood infection. He was 70.

Diocese spokesman Rick Musacchio says in a news release that Choby died Saturday night at Saint Thomas West Hospital, where he was undergoing treatment for injuries in a Feb. 7 fall at his home.

The statement says Choby sustained a head cut and vertebrae damage in the fall. On Thursday doctors had removed his pacemaker and internal defribillator because of recurring blood infections.

Born in Nashville, Choby was ordained as a priest in 1974. He was installed as the diocese bishop in 2006.

A funeral Mass will be held Saturday at the Sagrado Corazon Church at the Catholic Pastoral Center in Nashville.
