Long time St. John resident, and dear friend to hundreds on and off-island, Douglas (Dougie) Matthew Sica, passed away on March 22.
Sica moved to St. John from his home state of New Jersey in 1979. He bartended at the then-famous Backyard in Cruz Bay for years, before opening Skinny Legs with his close friend Moe Chabuz in the early 1990s.
Dougie, as he was known to many, was a familiar and friendly face at the popular Coral Bay bar and grill he operated with Moe.
Sicas infamous legsand signature white knee socksinspired the bars name.
A memorial service for Sica is still being planned, but Skinny Legs patrons, employees and people all over the world toasted his life and dear friendship at 4 p.m. on Friday, March 24.
We will miss you Dougie!
