I am shocked and saddened to learn of Doobie's passing. I only ever knew him as Peter's little brother growing up in Merion. What a happy boy! He was proud of Peter, loved his family, and happy to see friends like me stopping over.
I am very sorry for the Nowlan family. I'm glad Mr.& Mrs. Nowlan didn't have to witness Doobie's untimely death, but feel bad for them nonetheless.
I had no idea of Doobie's work as an artist and sculptor. His work is truly remarkable. Still, he was a member of the Nowlan Family, and to me, that trumps all.
God Speed, Nowlan Family! All love and well wishing to you.
From Tony Coppa, and all the Coppa's of Merion.
