Your editor received the very sad news this morning that Hugo Iodice passed away unexpectedly last night. As soon as funeral arrangements are made, they will be posted here.
I first met Hugo ten plus years ago in Croton's Upper Village over an Italian ice "imported" from The Bronx. His keen insights into Croton's political scene--and on the art of being "Italian" for lack of another way to put it--were often potmarked with outrageously funny commentary worthy of a television special. He was generous and kind, relished his role as a father to his two sons, and was in the end, just a very good person who will be missed. Sending my deepest condolences to Martha and his family.
