I received a call today from Lt Holmes advising former Skipper Maury Werth passed away in January 2008.
Maury was the only Skipper I served under and he would call me often after I became Chairman. He would always call me "Boss" but I knew better! I don't know if his wife survived him or not but at last report she was bedridden and in very poor health.
He came to most reunions with New Orleans being his last one and all of us that talked to him at the reunions will miss his "Sea Stories".
