Dino Nebel — the football-playing Staples High School Class of 1978 graduate, who entertained dozens of former employees at the now-legendary Arrow Restaurant reunion in 2012 — died recently. He was 56.
Dino came from a long Westport family. His grandfather — the famous sculptor Berthold Nebel — worked out of a barn he built on Roseville Road. His grandmother tended a beautiful garden there.
Dino worked for several years at the Arrow, starting around age 15. He had plenty of tales to tell of his time there — and he told them boisterously, as shown in these video clips:
The Arrow is long gone. So now is Dino.
But thanks to YouTube, both will live on forever.
