David, a laborer in the DPW, was fatally injured on March 19, 2015 while patching potholes one of the essential services he performed in his nine years with the department. At a meeting of the Tolland Town Council on March 24, 2015 a moment of silence was observed and it was expressed...."His efforts were vital in keeping our roads in repair and free of ice and snow.......As we drive through town we will be reminded of his dedicated efforts for years to come.....Though we cannot lift the burden or share the load with them (family, friends, co-workers and neighbors) as they mourn, we pray for peace and comfort for all who knew him and are saddened by this tragic event.
