The Potomac has lost a champion.

It is with heavy hearts that we report the passing of our friend and colleague, Curtis Dalpra.

Since joining ICPRB in 1981, Curtis has faithfully sent the Potomac News Reservoir newsletter, first in paper form then in electronic form. But today, we pause. We pause the newsletter, but we also pause to take a moment in honor of Curtis. We invite you to pause with us. Maybe take a walk by the river, stop to take a good photo, and throw a ball for your dog.

For 41 years, Curtis championed good stewardship of the Potomac River. Let us all continue that legacy.

We invite you to share memories of him on our Facebook post or send them to us privately. We will share them with his family.

His obituary notes that in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to: GRREAT Golden Retriever Rescue, Education and Training.
