To the editor:
Friday night, Nov. 5, I lost a good friend, and Ocean Isle Beach lost a truly special man. Howard Fisher, affectionately known to all as “Captain Howie,” passed away at his home while many friends stood by with love and support.
Howie was truly an American hero and served his country honorably. He was a man who helped many others and wanted no recognition for it, only to enjoy watching the results of his help and guidance.
