Connie Conover of Curtis Island crosses the bar

Garrett Elliott “Connie” Conover, Jr., the longtime volunteer "keeper" of Curtis Island Lighthouse in Camden, Maine, has died after a long illness at the age of 81. Connie, along with his wife Deedee, dedicated much of his life to the care and preservation of one of New England's prettiest light stations, nestled in Camden's spectacularly beautiful harbor.

I'm sorry I never had the chance to meet Connie. My friend Bob Trapani knew him, and Bob has posted a very nice tribute. Click here to read it.
