Re: RIP Wolfenzee (David)
David "Wolenzee" Ewoldt was my friend for 6 years here in Port Townsend, Washington. He was born in the northeastern states, Portsmouth Maine I believe. He had a degree in Molecular Biology and if memory serves me correctly that was at Princeton. Sometime in his 30's I believe he had a serious car accident which left him with a permanent brain injury. His short term memory mostly was affected but true to form he carried on. His love of sailing came at an early age as he and his brother and Father would sail often. He spoke alot about these times. He purchased what is now "Waltzing Matilda" about the time I met him. He would often say to me "I need some help" to which I would sit down and discuss sometimes for hours how he could do something himself. And even if it took a month or more.to complete the job he was proud as hell because he would realize that by golly Inkslinger is right....I can, I did, and it looks classy! David was nearing completion of adding his personal touch to "Waltzing Matilda" and was awaiting a crew member to head south and eventually to Panama. He is survived by his brother Eric of Panama and Florida and his sister Jennifer of California. I am proud to have been his friend and to see how loved he was by all who have passed kind word both on this forum as well as locally. He will be missed by all. David touch many lives and he was like a brother. Sail on my friend with your Father and may your journey be peaceful.

Re: R i p wolfenzee...dammit

Wolf was a gentleman here and I am sure in the 'real world' also. He will be missed. At least he died doing what he loved. THat we should all be so lucky.

RIP Wolf. I am sure you are sailing up there right now too.

Re: R i p wolfenzee...dammit

Sorry folks. Just felt a need to confirm this news. Not a hoax as I watched helplessly as the paramedics worked on David for 20 minutes. I have been his friend for over 6 years and I reported his passing on CF. I just last night put out more info about his life on CF. Fair winds my friend.

We knew it wasnt.

I personally have had the pleasure of speaking with him over the past. He was a good guy and thoughtful. He will be missed.

Thank you for coming on here and passing the news.
