Are there any Bostonians or Boston-area folk out there who remember this guy? For those of you wondering, Mr. Butch was a really funny, friendly man who called the streets of Boston home for a few decades and has been “The Mayor of Allston (a Boston neighborhood)” for the past decade, or so.
Anyhow, he’s dead, sadly. He was doing about 50 mph on his Vespa by the convergence of Brighton Avenue and North Beacon Street (in Allston.) I’ve been depressed on and off ever since I heard the news. Allston will be lacking from hereon in.
