Winthrop and East Boston lost a couple of long-time civic-minded sons this week. Alan Lupo, who chronicled the lives of average Joes and never held his tongue when confronting abuse of power, died Monday at age 70, while Tony Marmo, widely active among non-profits and youth sports organizations, passed away Tuesday at age 90.

Both communities are lesser places in their absence.

I had the pleasure of knowing both men.Tony Marmo was a father figure to many of us who frequented the skating rink in our youth,he was always guiding us in many ways. He literally had a heart of gold.Alan Lupo was quite familiar with our community,writing about this area often. Both will be missed. It's a loss to us all--people like them arent easily replaced. May they rest in peace.
