George Sisson, Bristol treasure, dies Sunday June 28 at age 89

George Sisson died in Bristol at St. Elizabeth's nursing home Sunday, June 28. George was a unique individual and usually greeted people with a question on a topic he thought you knew more about than he did (which was not always the case). We will miss his gentle soul, his insatiable curiosity and also his tenacity in getting thing done in all things he believed in. Among many projects, he was involved in saving Coggeshall Farm, the creation of the bike path to Providence, saving Linden Place and the Bristol Statehouse. Please leave a comment and tell us your experiences with George. Below is the Providence Journal obits written today. Another tribute/obits will come out in Monday's Pro Jo July 6, 2009.
