Sad news from LI as Howie Dietz has passed. Some nice thoughts and memories have been coming in from the LI sailors;
“Howie was a welcome fixture for my entire iceboating life. Ralph, I am smiling remembering you, Howie, and company, sitting in the back row “peanut gallery” laughing your asses off and being generally entertained watching me try to run a meeting! LOL. I look forward to reading more memories from the rest of you.”
“Very sorry to hear about Howie. Sympathies to his family. Smooth ice, fair winds and sharp runners, you will be missed by all your iceboating friends..Doug”
“Very sad news indeed but very glad to have had him for a friend- Always a genuine pleasure to hang out with as you all know, We will miss him and the undiluted sense of fun he always brought to the ice and our meetings.”
