Morenzoni, III and wife Tina of Clearwater, FL, Scott Morenzoni and his wife Melissa of Hermitage, TN, Cindy Alfiero of Port St. Lucie, FL and Kerri Hunt and her husband William of Westerly.

Kerri and Family-

I was deeply saddened to learn that your dad had passed. He was without question one of the nicest guys I have ever met. I’ll always remember the fun golf matches we had against each in the Tuesday night league at Winnapaug. In fact I’ll never be able to go to Winnapaug without thinking of him.

May your great memories of your dad comfort you at this very very sad time.
