I was saddened to hear of the death of Dipakkumar “David” Patel former owner of Relax Inn on Christmas Day. Over the past thirty years of working in the Environmental Health Section for the Macon County Public Health Center, I have worked with numerous individuals especially in the food and lodging industry. In my encounters, David Patel could easily be considered the most compliant new owner. From my initial visit to his business in May 2012, he impressed upon me that he was a man of his word (even though I didn’t know him) to just trust him. Over the last one year and seven months he held true to his word.
