Our esteemed Board member, John Tighe, has written a fitting eulogy for a troubled but devoted Victoria Pool person below:
In sad news Edward Darren Beliveau of Beach Street in Ballston Spa died peacefully Friday, Dec. 14, 2012, at Saratoga Hospital after a long and courageous battle with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, a type of cancer. He was 42.
Better known at the Victoria Pool as “bikini man” he was a colorful if controversial figure who could be seen almost daily at the pool. Many children had their first introductions to a “alternative lifestyle” when they first saw “bikini man”. Many parents used this experience to teach their children respect and tolerance. I truly hope “Rose” as he liked to be called finds peace in his passing. God knows he found little in life.
