Hall of Fame

Catherine Brubeck Yaghsizian of Wallingford speaks at an event that saw her father, the late jazz great Dave Brubeck of Wilton, included as a 2014 inductee into the Connecticut Hall of Fame. A ceremony was held this week in Hartford. With her is State Sen. Len Fasano (R-Wallingford). Joining in the celebration, but not shown, were Sen. Toni Boucher (R-26) and Rep. Gail Lavielle (R-143) of Wilton. Ms. Boucher described Mr. Brubeck as ‘a humble, warm, easygoing man whose ready smile and sense of humor put everyone at ease. His love of his wife, Iola, his family, his church and Wilton was keenly felt by all that knew him.’
