To the Editor:
Chappy and Martha’s Vineyard have lost one of its most extraordinary citizens. Joe Cressy’s intellect, integrity, kindness, and zest for life were matched by few.
One of Joe’s great loves and pleasure came from being on the Edgartown Fire Department. And so, rest assured my dear friend, I shall be on this year’s Fourth of July parade route and wave to your friends and the legend that once rode the firetruck. Love you, Joe.
