Default In Memoriam - Edward "Boo" Texas

Edward "Boo" Texas, a longtime crew member aboard the Str. BELLE OF LOUISVILLE, passed away on March 23rd here in Louisville. Also known as "Tex", he is survived by his seven siblings, nieces, nephews and a multitude of friends. Tex faithfully served as deckhand, then fireman, for decades and will be remembered by many in the immaculate boiler room, always friendly and happy to answer questions from passengers about his very noisy and HOT domain.

Until we meet again, THANKS, Tex, for always being so dependable to "keep up steam", and for your friendship. You were a good man to ride the river with, and a long and two shorts of the whistle to your memory.

Photos: (1) "Tex" relaxing on Belle forecastle at Cincinnati, October, 1972. (2) Belle whistle blowing a salute. (3) Sunset and steam from the stern of the BELLE, below Cincinnati, en route to Tall Stacks, October, 1992.
