TABAKIN, Stewart 62, a retired Boston businessman, who helped extend the horizon for area arts organizations, died peacefully on July 17 at his home in Truro. He is survived by his partner of thirty-two years, artist Salvatore Fiumara. Born in New York City, he founded Marathon Messengers in 1977, Boston's first business messenger service with two bicyclists. By the time he sold his business in 2006, more than 70 of his couriers buzzed through Boston's streets. In Boston, Stewart actively assisted local organizations and events, and since 2000 he also served as a volunteer at the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach, FL. However, it may be his work at the Provincetown Art Association and Museum for which he is best known, and on August 23rd, PAAM's town-wide birthday celebration will be dedicated to him for his continuous support and dedication. A Service will be held on Sunday, August 3, at 11:30 a.m., at the Provincetown Art Association and Museum, 480 Commercial Street, Provincetown. If desired, donations may be sent to either PAAM or the Center for Cancer Research at Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston. A Prayer Service at South Cemetery, Truro will follow. Friends may leave a message of condolence for the family at
