Default Another Steamboat Buff Passes...

Among our visitors to the Howard Steamboat Museum this week was the granddaughter of river enthusiast Louis "Louie" DeCar, of Madison, Indiana. Sadly, she told me that Louie passed away on February 27 at the age of 92.

Louie was a longtime member of S&D, and of the MOR Chapter of S&D. He and his wife, Mary, enjoyed riding the BELLE of LOUISVILLE on many trips through the years. Louie's Christmas card always contained a steamboat photo. It was a pleasure to know Louie for over four decades and he will be greatly missed.

Funeral services were held at the St. John's United Church of Christ in Madison on March 2, with interment in Springdale Cemetery.

A long and loud whistle salute to the memory of a loyal supporter of steamboat and river history.
