Westport First Selectman Gordon Joseloff today issued the following statement on the death of Staples High School graduate Roger W. Muchnick in a U.S. Marine Corps training accident in Nevada:  “This is a sad day for Westport where Roger grew up. At Staples, he was well known as a popular football and lacrosse player and was well liked by his friends, teachers, and coaches.

“He is the second Staples graduate on active duty with the Marines to die in an accident in little more than three years, and our community once again is in shock  “Our hearts go out to the Muchnick family and friends. We deeply share their loss.”
