Editor,

The silver haired gentleman seen at the chessboard on main beach, occasionally with a pigeon sitting atop of his hat, has returned to his hometown of Lucca, Italy.  Said he was going so see his son in Canada on the way.  Take care, Burt; safe travels.

  1. I got to know Burt quite well over the past twenty years. We played countless speed chess games against one another. He was a brilliant chess player who had a wonderful sense of humor. He will certainly be missed by many.

  2. I run by him on the boardwalk nearly every day. I believe that he claims he played cess with Steven Hawking among others.
