60 Years, 2 Generations, 1 Restaurant

Richard Accursio understood hard work and the willingness to take a risk. The large Italian family with roots in Sicily embraced the American dream and set about achieving it on different paths. At only sixteen, Accursio became a busboy at the famous Coconut Grove restaurant/supper Club in Boston. He paid attention to the kitchen and chefs though, picking up ideas. What he nor anyone else expected was the tragic fire that broke out November 28, 1942 when almost 500 people perished, and more than 150 were injured. Ironically, what he had been expecting was to be called up in the draft for World War II. His time as a soldier was delayed since he was required to be a witness in the trial that followed numerous investigations. It was not as if he missed out on action, however, as one of the units he was assigned to was among those who helped bring relief to the American and Allied troops surrounded in the infamous Battle of the Bulge.

There are moments diverse elements come together to bring about a result both inspiring and heartwarming.  In November 2016, when tragedy gripped three families, Isaac Lipscomb was the only one who survived an automobile accident that took the lives of his close friends, Samir Barrera and Isaiah West. In reeling from grief at their deaths, doctors broke the news to Lipscomb they doubted he would walk again.
