Dear Dotty, Karen and Gary:
I and my entire family are so sad at Amos' passing! Although he lived a full and rewarding life, it is nonetheless inexplainable when God calls us to his side.
I met Amos in 1974 when I was working for Perini and Amos was the Project Office Manager at Madison Park High School in Boston. By that time Amos was a veteran at Perini and I learned a lot from watching him operate! He loved his family and was very close to his friends.There are no words to describe how much he will be missed!
Arrivederci my friend
