View Full Version : Remembering Mark Bavis

I'm sorry that I couldn't post this earlier because I was working. I wanted to take the time to recognize Mark Bavis, former BU Terrier (and Parkway Little League Twin ;)) standout.

Most who knew Mark remember him as a fine hockey player and all who knew him remember him as an even finer person.
He was a class act and a gentleman.

Mark and many others had their lives cut short by cowards on 9/11 and his loss is still felt by many.

PC91. Thank you for posting this. I thought of Mark Bavis today also. He should be enjoying a barbecue with family and friends tonight. Some deranged worthless people made that impossible. Your sentiment is, obviously, infinitely more important than who wins hockey games.

I ate at T. Anthony's on BU's campus tonight. They have a framed "in memoriam of Mark Bavis" plaque that happened to be on the wall right above the table I was sitting at. Definitely got me to thinking. Thanks for posting this, PC91.
