Robert Leustek of Winchester, NH died while driving a dump truck in Massachusetts. At this point, it is said that the brakes failed and he crashed into a building.
Little else is known.

I'm still in shock.  My heart goes out to Gloria.  I was just reading an article the other day about Robert fixing the clock in Winchester.

This is too sad.  I just don't know what to say.

Didn't know the man well, but he was a great host of the parties we enjoyed at their place. Very friendly and welcoming as well as active in the community. Exactly the kind of person the FSP would hope to move to NH.

It was nice to see folks brave the rain and come out for the Leustek's Labor Day get together.

Great Bar-B-Que provided by Kirby's Q (https://www.facebook.com/KirbysQ/) and Mark Warden (http://porcupinerealestate.com).

The rain let up and the Fireworks were really great. Thanks to Chris Reitman (https://www.facebook.com/crietmann) for organizing the funding raising. Robert would have been proud.

Old and new friends gathering...

How is Gloria holding up? Any news?
I just read this today and sent her an email.
I assume children are involved.
I will endeavor to check this site more often.

I think that she is doing as well as could be expected. She has good friends and family.

No kids.

...but she has a very loving cat... you know, which is nice.
