To the O'Hara family, I offer my sincerest condolences, but I temper that with the knowledge that you've received a legacy of laughter and love. No one can ask for more.
Dave became a big part of my life early in my career when Gil Peters, the UPI sports editor in Boston introduced me to Dave as my "opposition. Taking me aside, Gil told me that if I get in a jam, Dave would take care of me. Trust me, Dave got me through the early days and neither of us had a reason to panic over the basics. A story was another thing...but that's the job.
In those days, I quickly learned, there was a triumvirate of sports writers in Boston; (in alphabetical order) Ray FitzGerald of the Boston Globe; Tim Horgan of the Boston Herald and Dave O'Hara of the AP.
If it wasn't for Dave's help especially in the early days, I might never have been able to have a 23-year career of writing about sports in the greatest sports town in the world.
Thank you Dave. As I now work on a national golf and lifestyle strata, your lessons hold true the same as they di the day a stumbled down the press box stairs in 1974.
