PA Marine, Dad Of 5 Accused Of Attacking Police At Jan. 6 Capitol Riot Dies Suddenly

July 8, 2022 A man hoping to make a deal and resolve his case regarding his alleged attack on a police officer during the Jan. 6 Capitol Riot has died and his community wants the world to remember he was a person beyond this one day. Michael John Lopatic, 58, of Manheim Township, was accused of ripping off one of the officer’s helmet and gas mask, stealing his cellphone— breaking his body camera, an essential piece of evidence— and hitting him with an uppercut during the riot, according to prosecutors statements.

But this former Marine was not deemed a flight risk and was released from custody over a year prior to his passing by U.S. District Judge Emmett Sullivan. Lopatic’s conditional release included that he must surrender his guns, take medication— he was known to have a benign brain tumor among other undisclosed maladies, and stay away from other defendants.

If he was convicted he would have faced a maximum penalty of 21 years and 6 months in prison and more than $1 million in fines, according to court records, but— for an unknown reason— Lopatic was hospitalized at Lancaster General, where he died on Sunday, July 3, according to his obituary.

Silva said that he told his wife to take her to the hospital, but she felt better and decided to continue the vacation with a little rest, but on the third day it was worse.

“When she told me, you know, take me to the hospital, it was very late because later, when she told us to go to the hospital, it took less than 20 minutes when she died, the bad thing is that mine were in the same room as us, they were able to see everything,” Silva added. The hotel doctor tried to revive her with chest pressures, the paramedics arrived, but it was too late.

“I never thought that something was going to happen, so I had a lot of problems moving the body from Puerto Vallarta to Tijuana, where her family is,” Silva finally added.

Remembering Walton Amey, 69

July 5, 2022 Rochester, NY – Walton Amey — a multi-talented musician and athlete, and a 1971 Staples High School graduate — died suddenly on Sunday. He was 69. His longtime friend, Grammy-winning musician and producer Brian Keane, writes:

Some friends in life are so close, for so long, that they become part of your own history. Walton Amey is such a friend for me. He was a top athlete, captain of the Coleytown Junior High football team where we played together, a talented singer in the elite Staples Orphenians (we sang together in a church choir too). We made mischief together, partied together, played in the same rock ‘n’ roll band, and served on community projects together. Walton was also a theatrical star in Staples Players….

We gathered once again this year. We played games on the beach, watched fireworks, had great dinners, drank, played guitars and sang songs we had written, songs of our youth, and all kinds of fun songs in between. Some time after we went to bed at 1 a.m., Walton got back up. We don’t know what happened, but he was discovered at the bottom of the stairs at 2:15. EMS arrived 10 strong right away, and worked on him from 2:30, even getting a pulse backBut he lost that pulse on the way to the hospital.

The night before, we watched a spectacular sunset from the deck of the beach house. I had remarked how lucky we were to be alive to witness this. Walt agreed, and expressed his gratitude too….

When we got confirmation that Walton had died, we knew we had lost an important part of our own lives. Our life histories had been so intertwined. We spent the rest of the day in a combination of shock, grief, and “producer mode” dealing with things….
