We are so sad to learn of Wisty's passing! I was standing in front of St.Rosalia Church on Friday when I found out ! How appropriate that I was in Greenfield ,where we all grew up , and loved to reminisce about so many things with Wisty when we would run into him and Huffy at St.E's ! That's how we will always remember him! Smiling Irish Eyes-and happy all the time! You were the Best, John Wisty Coll ,and we will miss you! GodBless, Mary B. And Richie Clydesdale
