Cool People for the Week of 6/15-6/21 ’08


It is with the greatest sorrow that the Seaside Heights Office of Public Relations must announce the untimely passing of Seaside Heights Police Captain David “Dave” Szalkowski. Captain Szalkowski lost an 11-year battle with the dreaded illness Scleroderma, which attacked his lungs, on Tuesday June 17th. The Captain underwent a double lung transplant on Saturday May 17th in Pittsburgh, and had been considered a high-risk case. Although initial reports were hopeful that the Captain was doing well, a sudden infection developed, and Dave did not make it. Captain Szalkowski had many friends, and this was obvious at his packed benefit on May 2, 2008, days before he left for Pittsburgh. Dave is survived by his wife Elayne, a teenage son and a pre-teen daughter. Dave was a talented, intelligent and gifted individual, an all-around good guy and good friend. No one who knew or worked with him will ever forget him. Rest in Peace Dave.
