RIP Wolfenzee (David)

I deeply regret to bring you the following bad news...David "wolfenzee" passed away at 4:38 am Aug 9 after a seizure while at anchor here in Port Townsend. His family would like to thank all who were trying to help him go south. His vessel may end up on the market depending on his families wishes.

Re: RIP Wolfenzee (David)

Terribly sorry to hear. His user profile with picture, link to threads, etc:

Cruisers & Sailing Forums - View Profile: wolfenzee

He's the third person that I recognize from here that has died on cruisersforum.

To the thread starter, could you give us a little info on how he got into sailing, what he wanted to do, how much he got done, etc?

Re: RIP Wolfenzee (David)

It is a shame that I never met David in person. Gotta get my boat done and re-join the local sailing fraternity soon. It is a great bunch of people that is now one fewer. R.I.P.
