Deceased Date: 2021-02-21
Woburn, MA and Lady Lake, FL - Surrounded by her loving family, Gail A. Romano passed away on February 21, 2021 from a brain hemorrhage at the age of 78. She joins her husband, James C. Romano, who passed away on January 11, 2021, in eternal heavenly love.
Gail was born on July 2, 1942 and was the eldest child of the late Charles and Ruth (Daly) Achstetter. She grew up in Arlington, MA and was a graduate of the Class of 1960.

Her pastimes included knitting, clothing-making and creating dolls to gift to new family members and friends. She
took great pride in dressing meticulously for her weekly trips to Mass and for her date nights with Jim. She worked as a pharmacy technician for many years at both Osco Drug and Medical East where she was a familiar face in town. She loved sharing her time between MA and FL and always remained

Karen was one of my best friends in junior high and high school.  We shared many good times.

Joyce Hepburn Radochia - February 28th, 2010
Karen was a dear friend for many years, from 5th grade,, when she moved across the street from me until shortly before her death.  We had lost touch for many years, but we were able to reconnect and pick up where we had left off while she was undergoing treatment.  I will always be sad that I did not get to see her again, but I cherish the memories of both good and sad times that we shared.
Joyce Radochia - February 11th, 2010
Karen was one of my best friends from the 5th grade on.  She was a smart, loyal, and devoted friend.

Dr. Michael Daley
Dr. Michael L. Daley, 67, a resident of Germantown, TN, died unexpectedly Monday, February 8, 2010, in Memphis, TN. He was the son of James J. Daley and Agnes E. (Hallisey) Walton and graduated from Arlington, MA, high school. He served in the USAF, 1960-1964. Dr. Daley was a Ballard Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at The University of Memphis. He graduated from the University of Massachusetts, BSEE 1968, and the University of Rochester, MSEE 1970, PhD 1973. Dr. Daley’s early work focused on human eye tracking and the development of predictive mathematical models. He received a postdoctoral fellowship in the Dept. of Ophthalmology and Laboratory of Neurophysiology, Good Samaritan Hospital and Medical Center, Portland, OR. He then obtained a position at the Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland where he conducted research on methodologies to detect subtle changes in vision associated with diseases such as optic neuritis and multiple sclerosis and became interested in neurological diseases and traumatic brain injury. In 1988 he accepted a position as an associate professor in electrical engineering at Memphis State University (now The University of Memphis). Dr. Daley began to work on cerebral blood flow and intracranial pressure and has presented his work at several international conferences, including the Intracranial Pressure (ICP) meetings. His research included collaborations with several colleagues at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center. His most recent work focused on modeling of blood flow through the brain and alterations caused by traumatic stroke. His goal was to develop a method to continuously assess cerebrovascular pressure regulation from pressure recordings obtained from brain-injured patients in the intensive care setting. This knowledge would be critical to adapting the clinical care individually to the patient, hopefully greatly improving the outcome of procedures employed. In this endeavor Dr. Daley enlisted collaborations in the USA, Europe, and Scandinavia. For several years Dr. Daley directed the high school regional Science Olympiad and a summer enrichment program for rising ninth graders. In 1997 he served as President of the Tennessee Academy of Science. In 1996 he received an Outstanding Engineer award from IEEE and was a Life Senior Member. Dr. Daley has contributed to over 50 articles to professional publications and holds a patent. He is survived by his wife of 41 years, Carol; his daughter and son-in-law Leah and Stephen Uftring of Fredericksburg, VA. He also leaves behind his siblings: James (Lorraine) of So. Dennis, MA; John of Hyannis, MA; and Mary Perini (Richard) of Arlington, MA; as well as many nieces, nephews, and great-nieces and nephews.

We will miss you friend and classmate.
We had Mr Eaton for a special math class together.
A few of us got 800's on our Math  SAT's.
I always remember you writing in my yearbook "To the Brain thats Lazy"
I guess that was because I never seemed to pay attention but when Mr Eaton called on me I would give the answer.  In reality from what we read on your obituary and your career you were the real Brain.  Dave Rivers Friend & Classmate

His mission: Find homes for everyone

Marshall Derby may be best known as the Lexington Housing Assistance Board (LexHAB) chairman, a position he held for 15 years. He died Wednesday, May 16 at his home at age 64.
Marshall Derby always gave his friends laughter, retaining his sharp wit to the end of his battle
with pancreatic cancer.
He was also a giver to total strangers, helping families in need have a chance to live in Lexington. He gave his family love, showering his wife, two children and four grandchildren with caring, understanding and knowledge.
But Derby’s own words about giving, read by his friend and business partner Morton Hodin during his eulogy to Derby at Temple Isaiah Friday, describe him best. “What you get is a living, what you give is a life.
” He died Wednesday, May 16 at his home at age 64.
Derby may be best known as the Lexington Housing Assistance Board (LexHAB) chairman, a position he held for 15 years. Combining his professional knowledge of real estate development with his genuine desire to help others, he took the reins of the town’s municipal affordable housing organization and quadrupled its stock.
“During his period of leadership and inspiration LexHAB increased its housing stock from 12 to 15 units to the 50 we now have,” said Bill Hays, who has served on the LexHAB board since its inception in 1983. “We’ll be hard put to find any three people who will together be able to give the town and our agency the expertise, the inspiration, the commitment and the leadership that Marshall brought to bear.”
Derby coordinated a collaborative effort between the town, the Lexington Rotary Club, and Minuteman Regional’s carpentry program to acquire available lots in Lexington and build houses on them, to become available for low to moderate income families seeking to live in Lexington.
“Not only was he very, very smart, and had all sorts of business acumen, but he was also a real doer,” said Selectman Norman Cohen. “If he felt there was a chance we could get a piece of land and build a house on it, he persisted. He wouldn’t give up.”
Laura Derby, his wife, observed Derby over the years as he happily gave his time to helping young families find homes in Lexington. “It was so wonderful to watch. It mattered so much to him to help people live in our town who couldn’t normally.”
Derby was born on Dec. 19, 1942 in Arlington, where he also attended school through his graduation in 1960. He moved on to Tufts University, where he received his undergraduate degree in 1964 and master’s degree in 1965, the latter in chemical engineering.
He began his career in real estate development in 1969 with Benjamin L. Cohen and Sons and in 1986 he began at H & D Development, working alongside Hodin until 1995.
His life was filled with other duties, spent mainly for the benefit of others. Derby was a Lexington Town Meeting member for 20 years. He worked with the Junior Chamber of Commerce in the 70s at what is now the Massachusetts Correctional Institute in Concord helping to teach young men who were incarcerated. He served as the president and trustee of the congregation at Temple Isaiah, and he worked with the Service Corps of Retired Executives (SCORE) to provide free small-business administration consultation.
“He was most generous with his time, but he never bragged about it, so most people had any idea how much he was doing,” said Hodin.
Laura Derby said that despite his many duties away from home, her husband always put his family first. His daughter Rebecca pointed out that just like in his professional life and town life, he engaged his role as a father with compassion and understanding.
“He was very caring and giving man,” she said. “He listened well to what they were saying, and usually succeeded in helping them. He loved knowing how things worked. He had a very curious mind, and he loved sharing that.”
Derby was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer a year ago, and since then he had been flooded by letters and visitors who eagerly accepted the chance to share with him the profound effect he had on them. According to Rebecca and Laura, they number in the hundreds.
In a letter sent to Derby from a resident that he helped move into Lexington through LexHAB, she wished him “warm thoughts, hugs, and positive energy,” and included a picture of her baby daughter.
“Although I have only met you on one occasion, you often cross my mind” said the resident, whose name was omitted by the Derby’s in consideration for her privacy. “Because of you and many others we are able to live in the community.”
The last months have provided an outlet for such sentiments.
“There’s nothing lucky about having a disease that you know will kill you soon,” said Laura Derby. “But it gave people a chance to say the things they wanted to him, and he to them, which was a good thing.” After years of bringing smiles to friends, family, and people he had never met, it was Marshall Derby’s turn to smile. The day before he died, according to Laura, his daughters Rebecca and Sara, and his grandchildren Nate, Sadie, Mark, and Eliza, sat by his bedside and spoke to him.
“At that point, he was able to do very little,” she said. “But he heard their voices, and he got that huge smile on his face.”

Mark Kahan - October 14th, 2010
Dear AHS Classmates, no simple note can capture the wonderful caring man Marshall was. He had a quick wit, and a bright, realistic, do-the-right-thing style. He made things happen.
I had the great privilege of being his friend from grade school through AHS, Tufts, and beyond. Our dads’ cars would be parked in the local Temple’s lot, and if we could, we’d choose a car, hop in, and take turns tuning the radio to see who could get the furthest ball game. We laughed and shared. And, every time we saw each other over the decades, that never changed.
Marshall was a man apart. In talking, during his illness, he quipped, “Ah, if I had known then what I know now, I would have ordered more really expensive wine! :-)  When we were sad, he made us laugh. He set a standard as to what life is all about. Good friends are few and far between, and I, like many of you, feel blest in having known him.

Marshall Derby was one of the sweetest, nicest guys ever.  He was bright and funny and one of my favorite boy-pals in high school.  I'll always remember him with fondness and sorrow that he is gone.
