When I first met Owen, we were building our brewpub , Ross Valley Brewing company. Owen was so enthusiastic to help and talented. He was also fun and kind. It was a special time for all of us, and I love that Owen was part of it and got to spend time getting to know him. The most fun though was watching Owen, my father in law and my Dad, build out aspects of the brewpub together. Priceless!

Rest in peace, Mr. McKenna! Best wishes to all the McKenna family. I feel very fortunate to have grown up in Little Neck/Douglaston with such great friends and a network of remarkable, supportive parents like Mr. And Mrs. McKenna, Mr. And Mrs. Heintz and so many others. Thanks, coach, for making me go back out for that third little league at-bat of the game so I could get hit by my third pitch of the day! Stung at the time, but the lesson stays with me to this day!
