Andrejs Ozolins, one of Ithaca’s most dedicated community organizers, passed away on May 30th. Andrejs was a friend to many and very open-minded and willing to talk to anyone about anything. Never was he hesitant to voice an opinion. Those of us who knew him will miss him deeply, and we send our condolences to his family. According to Diana, his wife, he was diagnosed with cancer in 2011 and lived a good, active and courageous life until just a few months ago.
A memorial page has been added to our website and we hope to add a feature that allows the community to honor his life by adding commemorative notes. More information regarding memorial services will be provided on this site soon.
