Sad news to report this morning from Council President Marc Laredo:
“I am very sorry to inform you that our valued former colleague, Councilor Brian Yates, died yesterday from complications arising from a severe cardiac arrest he incurred several weeks ago. Councilor Baker, who succeeded Brian as the senior member of the Council, is in touch with his family about funeral and other arrangements. As soon as we know more, we will inform you. In the meantime, our condolences go out to Councilor Yates’s family and many friends. Brian was a distinguished public servant who will be sorely missed.”
The wake for Brian Yates will be held on Tuesday, from 4-8 pm at Doherty’s Funeral Home in Needham. The funeral mass is on Wednesday at 10:30 am at Brian’s church, Mary Immaculate of Lourdes.
