To the editor of THE EAGLE:
I was pleased to see Dick Lindsay’s article in the Eagle Thursday regarding honors, well deserved and late in coming, for Eugene Dellea.
I don’t know much about Gene’s work with the area hospitals but as a not- so quiet senior manager for Hillcrest Educational Centers from 1998 to 2010, I was well aware of his quiet, behind-the-scenes leadership there. I was also aware of Gene’s close friendship with the late Sen. Ted Kennedy and other political leaders and of his strong advocacy with them for the Berkshires.
It is nice to see good news of quiet leaders in this time of frustration and too much silly talk.
