Gorilla '69 RIP

Postby muskieman » Tue Jun 08, 2021 10:34 pm

I just heard that Gorilla '69 aka Neil Dattilo passed away March 5. Neil was a 1969 graduate of Xavier University and was an avid "Muskie" basketball fan. He loved musketeer madness and his humor will be missed If you wish to watch his funeral and the tribute his daughter Christina gave at the beginning of the service.

GOD bless you NEIL Gorilla 69
I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.

So sorry to hear this! Always good to talk X with Neil at Kroger's when he was working or at the Steak Fry.

Thanks for sharing MM. Rest in peace fellow Muskie alum. I always enjoyed reading his contributions. Father Time can be cruel.

Time either tears you down or builds you up. Depending. Now the wise guys on YouTube are saying time is all mixed up with gravity.
I not understand.
