    In remembrance of Gamewell, I'll be using his old Avatar as my own this week.

    Countryboy's idea of "doing better" in Gamewell's honor is a good one, obviously. I believe we could all use a dose of that.

    As I get to the end of the road myself, I think more and more about a lyric from Jackson Browne's 'For a Dancer'. Comparing life to a series of dances, he wrote, 'No matter how close to yours another's steps have grown, in the end there is one dance you'll do alone".

    Sorry to see him go. RIP.

    Might should add him up top with WR OL PW.

    Well.... that was completely unexpected to see here.....

    Rest Well Gene you had a busy productive life and a Free Mason too that is something special!

    Eugene worked for many years as an engineer for NBC Universal at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, NYC. He was also a union rep for Nabet-CWA Local 11, helping promote equality and fairness in the workplace, as well as settle any disputes. Gene was a volunteer firefighter for 34 years, first for the Pleasantville Volunteer Fire Dept, and then for the Town of Beekman. He was also the Vice President, on-air talent, and Broadcast and Technical Engineer for his radio station, WBXO Radio as well as a board member for Pawling Public Radio. Radio was his passion, and throughout his radio career, he worked with many big names in radio including Soupy Sales, Howard Stern, and Don Imus. Gene was also a member of the Freemasons.

    I'm sorry to see that. Gamewell and I disagreed a majority of the time, though he would back out quite often which drove me nuts. I guess it was his way of 'making peace'.

    Hopefully he went peacefully. While 67 is relatively young, he did many things for the betterment of the community, which should put him in good standing with the powers that be.

    I remember Gamewell as a reasonable guy who didn’t go sideways if you disagreed with him.
