Dudsy and I shared the goal-tending duties at Bishop Guertin in the early '70's, when BG first formed a hockey team... Dudsy, you were a solid teammate, and I'm sure you were a great person in your post-BG days...

RIP, Dudsy....

I played hockey with Dudsy on the first Bishop Guertin team back in the early '70's. He was always a blast to be around, and I enjoyed running into him around town as we grew older. He was always smiling.

I can't thank you enough for all the things you have taught me and all the memories we have made. We will never forget the great Bob Delude and I will pass everything you taught and shared along to Nora. You did more than enough for us and deserve to rest now even though I dont want you to. Everytime I go fishing I'll make sure to catch the first one for you. I love you Dad.

Dudsey! What can I say. I've known you since we were teenage punks working at HoJo's . Working nights with you was more like a party than work. Jammin' with you and the guys was always a blast. Getting stoned and partying didn't help our sound any......but MAN, we had good times.
We grew through the years into adults talking politics and solving the world's problems like a couple of old codgers. You'll forever be in my heart. Thank you for affording me the privilege of being your friend.

A poem to Uncle Bobby

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
We know you are in heaven but still here with us.
High up in the stars Fishing and Pulling
Catching stripers and lobsters you were never just mulling
So from Zachary and Mary we just want to say
Know that we loved you all night and all day.
Love, Mary and Zachary ❤️❤️
