Canestraro remembered

To the editor:

I was sorry to learn of the passing of Dick Canestraro. Dick and I just talked by phone a week ago and we caught up on some issues, friends, family and politics. He was a trusted friend, and I will miss him.

Many were the times Betty and I spent with Dick and Mary. They were a wonderful couple. I know that he always had the best interest in the well being of Steubenville and Jefferson County and will be missed by his many friends. Betty and I send our condolences to his family.
