Melanie Lekocevic is reporting in The Daily Mail the Village of Coxsackie is mourning the loss of Trustee Dan Hellen, who passed away unexpectedly on April 22. He was 43. Hellen was elected to the Coxsackie Village Board in May 2014. He filled the seat formerly held by Damian Johnston. Hellen served as liaison to the village police department, finance, parks, parades, beautification and other departments. At the time of his election, Hellen said he had always had a strong interest in political issues and in the operation of small town government. Coxsackie Mayor Mark Evans said Hellen’s contributions to the village would be missed. Evans said, "...He was elected last year and served admirably, bringing a great personality, wit and level-headedness to our board. Dan had the gift of being able to engage anyone and leave them feeling good that they knew him." Hellen leaves behind his wife Helen and seven children. Read the full story in The Daily Mail.
