   "People do things for a reason and that’s what 84-year-old Thomas O’Brien Jr. did when he passed away on Nov. 20, 2013 peacefully at home.
   "’O'Brien lived on Pleasant Street and was an avid reader with no immediate family living. He was a Navy pilot during the Korean War having reached the rank of lieutenant...
   "He went to work as a manager at New England Telephone and Telegraph. He was an avid golfer who never married or had children. He liked playing cribbage and was known to be a private person. His cousin said liked politics and political cartoons.
   He left $120,000 to the public library, a place he used often in his younger days. The funds left to the library may only be used for the purchase of books. In appreciation, the library will dedicate the book stacks to Thomas O’Brien Jr. on Feb. 15, 2017."
