I was sorry to learn from his sister several years back, of the passing of Dave "Buzzy" Heath who grew up down the street from me on Edgewood Road. We were very good friends during our time at Brookline School together, and also attended Temple Lutheran Church. We had a lot of touch football games in the schoolyard at Brookline. Although we tended to go our separate ways in junior and senior high due to different classes and activities, I do have a nice memory of a good intramural basketball team with Buzzy, Joe Makurath, Paul Sanders, and Ric Rotondi from our high school years.
