Brattleboro just got a bit dimmer. I just received word that Larry Bloch, force to be reckoned with, has left the building.
Larry was one of those people who wore a thousand hats in his lifetime. In NYC he owned Wetlands Preserve, a club that promoted social causes. He moved here in 1996 and opened a hemp clothing store which operated until early this year. He was one of the founders of Radio Free Brattleboro, and later WVEW, our local non-commercial radio station. He volunteered his time and money to many committees, projects and people in this town, often anonymously. He was an active, involved, passionate person, full of argument and humor. He leaves his wife and son, many friends, coworkers and neighbors.
He will be sorely missed.
