This morning a crowd of over a hundred people gathered at Causeway Street and Claypit Road to dedicate a new civic square in honor of Bobby Naughton, former officer in the MPD. The ceremony was organized by Richard DeSorgher, with remarks by former Chief Bill Mann, town administrator Mike Sullivan, and Veterans Service Officer Ron Griffin. All agreed that Bobby was friendly, kind, personable, brave, and had strong interests in nature, archeology, boats, and life in general. This writer met him few times, but recalls the warmth and focus he brought to bear. As Tracy Mitchell said when Bobby died, Medfield lost a great man who simply cannot be replaced.
The plaque and bench stand in front of two trees Bobby planted.
Wonderful celebratory event for a wonderful man, who is greatly missed.
