WCVB-TV Channel 5 did a piece last night on the passing of Steve Wasik of Wasik’s Cheese Shop in Wellesley.
Meanwhile, the Wasik family issued this note to the public on their website:
It is with our deepest regrets and sympathies that we inform you, our friends and loyal customers, that Steve Wasik passed away early Monday morning. He was not only the captain of our ship, but he was the anchor, the rudder, the sail and the wind. It goes without saying that this Christmas week will be especially difficult for our family.
Naturally, our store is extremely full of perishable inventory at this time and we have many more deliveries scheduled to arrive this week from other small businesses that depend on us to sell their wares. Because of this, we have chosen to rally together as a family and remain open this week. We ask that you be understanding of any glitches in the system this week and we hope you can rally with us.
While we are mourning a profound loss and may not be our jovial selves behind the counter, please know that our entire family wishes everyone a very Merry Christmas and that we hope you have time to reflect on what is really important this time of year, family.
