In Memory

We miss our friends and honor their work and legacy.  Each made a difference and contribution to the loving art of beekeeping.  If you would like to add the name of a departed beekeeper, or if you know the information to complete or correct the entries below, please send an email to, or mail to PO Box 64, Greenville, RI 02828, with their full name, town, and year of passing.  They did not have to be a member of RIBA, just a beekeeper.
