Posted by alfonse ciaccio on March 22, 2007............Mr. Aulogia was indeed a very special person. In fact, he reminded me of the character played by Richard Dreyfus named "Mr. Holland" in the movie "Mr. Holland's Opus". Reminiscent of that part, Mr. Aulogia would do anything to get one of us kids involved in some sort of positive musical activity. I am a professional musician today in large part due to his influence. He always had what we call in music "big ears" for music. But those ears were not employed only in things musical. Those ears also listened to those of us struggling to find our way in life and as musicians. May he rest in peace. I salute you sir.

Kirwan, Thomas a lifelong City of Newburgh resident and New York State Assemblyman Thomas Kirwan died Monday,
November 28, 2011 in the afternoon. Kirwan, 78, who had been battling an illness for some time, was admitted to the Newburgh campus of St.
Luke's Cornwall Hospital and passed away there around 5 p.m., according to Steve Neuhaus, regional director for the state Assembly Republicans as well as supervisor of the Town of Chester. Friends and family of Kirwan gathered at his
home in Newburgh late Monday afternoon. “He was incredibly fair and thoughtful – I could always count on my father for anything,” said Victoria Fabiano, Kirwan's daughter. Kirwan, R-C-Newburgh, was a former City of Newburgh firefighter and
served 28 years in the New York State Police. He retired as a lieutenant in the Bureau of Criminal Investigations. Kirwan spent four years in Manhattan with the New York Drug Enforcement Task Force. Former Town of New Windsor Supervisor
George Meyers said he knew Kirwan for 40 years, worked with him as a state trooper and considered him his best friend. Meyers said Kirwan never stopped being a cop at heart. “He was the smartest and nicest man you met in your whole
life,” said Meyers. Kirwan served as a Republican state assemblyman in the 100th District representing the cities of Beacon, Newburgh and Poughkeepsie and the towns of Marlboro, Newburgh, Lloyd and Shawangunk. He was elected in 1995 and
served until 2008 when he was defeated by Democrat Frank Skartados. In 2010, he narrowly recaptured the seat. Orange County Democratic Committee Chairman Jonathan Jacobson said Kirwan “never hesitated to say what he believed in.” A
moment of silence was held for Kirwan during a City of Newburgh council meeting Monday night. “We're talking about someone who's an institution in Newburgh. The guy was amazing,” said Newburgh Mayor Nicholas Valentine. Kirwan's state Senate
counterpart, William Larkin, R-C-Cornwall-on-Hudson, said Kirwan never embellished a story. “Tommy Kirwin never told you what you wanted to hear; he told you what you should hear,” said Larkin. Back in 1994, Kirwan defeated
incumbent Larry Bennett for the Assembly seat. Bennett said Kirwan was a gentleman with a good sense of humor. “He was above personal attacks and stuck strictly to the issues. The press called it ‘The Campaign of Gentlemen.'”

Schwarz, Arnold Victor (Vic) of Cold Spring, passed away on Wednesday, September 3,2008 at Hudson Valley Hospital following a 14-year battle with cancer. He was 76 years old. Vic was born on April 21, 1932 in Kingston, New York, to Arnold F. Schwarz and Helene Lawless Schwarz. He was raised in Newburgh and worked in his father's pharmacy in Beacon when not attending school. He graduated from Newburgh Free Academy in 1950. Following his graduation from Pratt Institute in 1953, Vic was drafted into the Army and served in Korea as a field photographer in the Corps of Engineers. Upon returning to the United States, he was stationed in Mineral Wells, Texas. After an honorable discharge, Vic returned to the Hudson Valley where he met Linda Schuler when both were singers in the Philipstown Chorale. They married on January 4, 1959, and settled in Cold Spring, where they raised their three children. An accomplished musician, historian, and conservationist, Vic and longtime friend Pete Seeger collaborated to realize their vision of inspiring and mobilizing people to save the Hudson River from pollution and neglect. Their combined vision brought about the creation of the sailing ship Clearwater, a replica Hudson River Sloop that continues to be used as an environmental educational tool. Their activities in support of Clearwater were the beginning of Riverfests and are acknowledged by historians and conservationists as being the birth of the environmentalist movement in the United States, as well as inspiring similar projects around the world. Vic's interest in bookmaking and printing led to his career as a book designer and hobby of wood engraving and printing. He owned and operated Mt. Taurus Press, a working restoration of a 19th century print shop in Nelsonville, New York, for over ten years. There he created a series of Hudson River prints that became classic representations of his work as an artist and a print maker. Vic returned to his musician environmentalist roots with his active participation in the formation of the Little Stony Point Citizens' Association. This grass-roots organization of local people is dedicated to the preservation and care of Little Stony Point, one of the very few sandy beaches along the Hudson River. As president of the Association, one of his proudest achievements was pursuing and obtaining the funding necessary for the replacement of the formerly condemned bridge, which was the only access to the site. The beach is now a very popular recreation area on the Hudson River. When Vic was diagnosed with cancer in 1994, he decided to devote his time to what made him happiest. Vic established a small business as a luthier, repairing and building acoustic stringed instruments. His business as a luthier led many musicians to his door, and Vic became an enthusiastic performer with friends, his group, Acoustic Workshop, and became a fairly regular performer at the legendary Guinan's in Garrison. As Vic's declining health curtailed many of his activities, a dedicated group of friends would often gather at Vic's house to play music with, and sometimes for, him. Vic is survived by his wife, Linda Schuler Schwarz; his son Carl Victor Schwarz of Lake Carmel, NY and grandchildren Tyler and Elliot Schwarz; his daughter Maria Joy Schwarz Rodriguez and son-in-law Oscar Rodriguez of Blue Point, NY and grandchildren Carl, Lauren, Melanie, and Arlo Rodriguez; his daughter Julann Mae Schwarz Cobb and sonin law John Cobb of Beacon, NY and grandchildren Ethan and Miles Cobb. Vic's life will be honored in a gathering of his many of friends and loved ones, sharing music and fond memories in his honor. Friends are invited to participate in this celebration of Vic Schwarz's life on Sunday, October 19 at 2pm at the Garrison Fish and Game Club.

Tompkins, Frances Pelella passed away on June 15, 2012, in Kennewick, Washington, after a
courageous battle with cancer. Fran was born on July 11, 1932, in Poughkeepsie and grew up in Newburgh, along the Hudson River in the
lower Hudson Valley of New York State, where she learned the meaning of a hard day's work. She worked on the family farm and at a young age understood the business of chickens and cows, fruit growing and vegetable gardening
while always looking forward to that trip to the river to catch fish. It was later in life when she realized how hard that work was and how it paid off. Fran's work ethic and sense of loyalty was instilled in her three children,
whom she raised as a single parent during their adolescent years, and worked a full time job. She encouraged her kids to work hard, enjoy sports and have funbut not until the house and yard chores were done. Fran supported her
children's dreams and never held them back from doing what they wanted to do. She also enjoyed family and extended family barbeques, trips to the pool, and a friendly game of cards. If you have ever played cards with Fran,
especially pinochle, you know how passionate she could become about it. Her kitchen table was open to family and friends who wanted to play and enjoy a good cup of coffee. There was always a pot of sauce with pasta, salad and
Italian bread. And her children's friends were always around where they were part of the family. In 1980, Fran followed her children to the Tri Cities, where she worked for Burns and Roe and then later Energy Northwest as a
document control clerk until she retired in 1997. During these years she enjoyed cooking from her garden, family get togethers and following her grandchildren's school and sports activities. For several years Fran was a
season ticket holder at the Tri-City Americans hockey games and loved watching those players who made it to the NHL. She was an avid NHL hockey fan for over 40 years and enjoyed the 2012 Stanley Cup right to the end.
Fran loved living in the TriCities, following grandkids and celebrating every holiday with family. Shopping the fresh markets and annual trips to the Oregon coast with her family were especially fun and enjoyable. Fran
enjoyed living at her retirement complex where she organized a birthday club and kept at it for 7 years making sure every member had a card on their birthday and a special dessert during their monthly birthday celebration.
Fran is survived by her three children, Debbie Pelella-Pettit (Ron) of Richland, Marianne Banta (Tom) of Kennewick and Mark Pelella (Gina) of Norwalk, Connecticut; grandchildren, Jason Webb (Abbie) of Bothell, Wa,
Kristine Webb of Richland, Jasen Banta (Jennifer) of Kennewick, Amber Stoner of Mountlake Terrace, Wa, Nick Banta of Kennewick, Nicole Caruso (Stephen) of Washington D.C., Alexandra Pelella and Mark Pelella II of Norwalk,
Connecticut; and five great-grandchildren; sisters, Shirley Lacey (Mel) of Kennewick, Susan Fishel of Mesa, Arizona and Terry Thom (Keith) of Bradenton, Florida, and numerous nieces and nephews. Fran was preceded in
death by her mother, Elizabeth Tatman, and step father, Carl Tatman. Fran's strength helped during her valiant fight with cancer. Even during those tough days, Fran stayed strong and made friends with all those who treated
and cared for her. She is and will be missed. In lieu of flowers, memorials can be sent to Lower Valley Hospice and Palliative Care 3920 Outlook Road, Sunnyside, We 98944, in memory of Frances Pelella. Please join her family at
2:00pm for her Celebration of Life on August 11, 2012 at 701 S Taft Street Kennewick, Wa in the backyard (735-3818). A private inurnment will be held at a later date at Sunset Memorial Gardens Richland, Wa. Express your
