I work for the Marathon here in Newburgh! He was hands down my favorite person that came in. He talked me through when my daughter was in boot camp. He would find me to every day to give me a fist bump before leaxing! I went here looking foe him hoping to be wrong! I ask all my employees if they had seen him and just kept waiting for him to pop back up. He will be truly missed here! Sorry for your family loss 😔 May he rest in peace.
