Gay ICU chief dies of coronavirus

David Hart, Costa’s husband of 28 years, said the doctor was a scientist who “lived through his brain” and loved his job more than anything in the world. As he lay dying, about 20 colleagues held a vigil and placed their blue-gloved hands on him. Hart said he placed his cheek next to Costa’s and held his husband in his arms until he died around 4:45 a.m.

Hart said his husband was the bravest man he ever knew.

“I get so angry when I see people not wearing masks,” Hart said. “It makes me want to take a bar of soap and write on my car’s rearview window that ‘My husband who saved so many lives died of COVID-19. Wear a mask!’”

Very sad.

He's super cute, too.

His lazy eye died years ago.

Let every needless death of COVID-19 be another nail in the coffin of Trump's campaign. We must do that in their memory.

Maybe I'm having a rough day, but this made me tear up.

Bless him and his poor husband.

Amen, R3. My condolences to his spouse and the rest of his family. He sounds like a well respected man who helped so many others, sacrificially. The imaging of his colleagues’ blue gloves on him as he left this world did me in. May he Rest In Peace.

He was Erna.

He wouldn't have lost a husband if I'd have had MY way.

This makes me very sad, I’m sorry for him and his husband.

R2 you’re an asshole. Isn’t there a joke thread you could post on

by Anonymousreply 907/27/2020

What a tragic end to a life well lived. RIP dear Joe.

And yes, R2 is a major asshole.

by Anonymousreply 1007/27/2020

I read a couple of stories about him today. He seems to have been a great and beloved guy.

[quote][R2] is a major asshole.

And pathetic.

by Anonymousreply 1207/27/2020

Also I don’t think it’s a lazy eye (where one looks a different direction.) One eye is just dominant (same with almost everyone) and the dominant eye’s eyelids are opened wider in the pic.

That’s so sad.

Can I have his stuff?

by Anonymousreply 1407/27/2020

You can have his left-over corona viruses.

Has anyone else notices that when gays get it, they really get sick?

Where's "What was on his iPod? "

by Anonymousreply 1707/28/2020

He was too busy working and saving lives to listen to an iPod, asshole.

by Anonymousreply 1807/28/2020

Reading about this beautiful man and how he lived his life makes me feel like a total slacker. I can’t imagine how hard life for the surviving husband will be, but I hope he finds the strength to live on and live well.

by Anonymousreply 1907/28/2020

So, R18, is "What's on his iPod" only for non-gay men? That was the point of my rhetorical question because you obviously didn't pick that up the first time.

by Anonymousreply 2007/30/2020

Crushingly sad indeed. I hope his spouse doesn't contract it now. Why isn't media holding up these COVID martyrs on TV each night,? They should; not only to memorialise, but also to motivate the deniers to mask up.

by Anonymousreply 2107/30/2020

They are, R21. I saw it on at least four different TV news programs. You must not be familiar with the deniers. They don't watch the news, and if they do it's Fox.

by Anonymousreply 2208/01/2020

He seemed to be a wonderful man. So very sad. It’s a loss for humanity. My heart goes out to his family.

by Anonymousreply 2308/01/2020

The blame lies with Republicans/Trump for this. People do not have money for FOOD and RENT. It is not so easy to get a face mask. If it is easy for you, YOU WEAR ONE. Trump/Pence/Republicans are not supplying them to people.

Vote ALL Republicans OUT of office for this.

They are the ones who are KILLING AMERICANS via Corona Virus.

Stay at home orders were working. Social Distancing works. Face Masks add in a layer of protection but you have to be doing the other.

This man is a literal angel. And will be for eternity. You should be proud, universe. You created a wonderful human being. May he inspire us all and move on to even greater heights.

Rest in Power, Joseph Costa. I cannot wait to see what awaits you.

May you watch over us and continue your journey-

You are what we should all strive to be.

And bless your husband and friend. He lost someone so special.
