Joseph "Beppi" Dolsot, a Ketchum resident and developer who was very vocal in local politics, died at his home on March 23 at age 67.
"Beppi and I politically disagreed on almost everything," said Ketchum Mayor Randy Hall, "but his argument was always respectful and thoughtful. In this community, he won't be soon forgotten."
Dolsot, originally from Italy, was involved to the very end, according to Java coffee shops owner Lisa Rippo. She has been spearheading an effort to stop the Ketchum Urban Renewal Agency from renting part of the city's visitors center building to a private company.
"He was very angry and opposed to the whole URA issue," she said. "It is believed that I might have been the last one to talk to him."
