Sunday morning Phil Bolger shot himself in the head
. Here is the full story I lifted from the Trailer Sailer site. This bothers and sadddens me a lot.
I can't say Phil and I were friends but we had chatted numerous times over the years and I always liked him and I loved his design work.

"The saddest of news
"In the early morning hours of Sunday May 24th 2009 Philip Cunningham Bolger of 66 Atlantic Street, Gloucester, Massachusetts
took his own life, out of his own free will, shooting himself in the head
with his Colt 45. I awoke later to his absence and found his body on our property out of public sight. The matter is under routine investigate by the Massachusetts
State Police and Gloucester Police Department."
