Louis S. Meltz, 1961 – 2013

Press Release
Tuesday, April 02, 2013

AMS President Louis Meltz passed away today, April 2, 2013, after a several-month battle with cancer.  Until just a few days ago, his doctors were hopeful that the treatments he was undergoing would be successful. His passing has been a sudden shock to all in the maritime industry. Marinelink and the entire New Wave Media family echoes those sentiments on this sad day.

Loyalty was Louis' greatest value. He was a devoted husband and father, a patriot who loved his adopted country, and a constant and true friend.

Louis also loved the U.S. maritime industry and the people in it. His highest praise was to describe a man or woman as loyal. And there were many whom he described in this fashion. Undoubtedly they were inspired by Louis' own dedicated friendship.

In keeping with this faith, a funeral service has been scheduled for the morning of Thursday, April 4, 2013 at the Yorktown Funeral Home at 945 East Main Street, Shrub Oak, New York. Louis' family welcomes anyone who, on such short notice, is able to attend. AMS will hold a memorial service for Louis Meltz in conjunction with this year's annual meeting.

After consultation with the family, those who want to express their condolences are encouraged to write a paragraph or two recounting their relationship with Louis, to be compiled by AMS into a Maritime Memory Book.

Louis is survived by three high school and middle school children.  Anyone who wants to make a further gesture toward the family is invited to make a small contribution to a tuition fund, the details of which will be forthcoming.
