Emil Grilli, a 94-year-old year old sculptor living in Shrewsbury, died last Friday, but his memory lives on online. Several years ago, Grilli's great nephew, Sam Hickson, constructed a web page in his uncle's honor.
The site shows the artist in his studio and includes photos of his work including a World War II memorial he funded and created for the town of Shrewsbury.
Grill died last week when the car he was in with his wife rear-ended another car at the intersection of Route 140 and Municipal Drive. Family members say his 92-year-old wife remains hospitalized.
