It is with great sadness that I post about the untimely death of another long time fixture on the Patriots beat.
New Bedford Standard Times writer Dan Pires passed away this morning at the age of 52.
Pires was a friend of BSMW, (as apparently he was of everyone else) often writing in and sharing little tidbits he had picked up from either online, or from Gillette Stadium.
Pires is survived by a wife and two children.
Colleagues of Dan Pires: please feel free to leave your memories of and comments about Dan below.
