From Bud Avdevich (2/9/09) Hope things are well with everyone, we are mostly ok here, with the exception of the passing of Uncle Archie Avdevich. One of those things, where he was always healthy, been eating healthy for several years, no meats. Held several parties in past several years, which he always used our DJ service (www.simdj.com). He went shopping and did several errands, came home, sat in chair to nap, never woke up. What a way to go! He was a good man. Obit can be viewed www.norwichbulletin.com
