Special Day

Jul 03, 2019

To the Editor:

Thank you to everyone who helped make the memorial paddle-out for Richard Lisiewski a very special day.

We appreciate those who stopped by the Brighton Beach Surf Shop or made their way to the beach later that afternoon. Dad would have been taken aback by the large number of well-wishers on the beach and those who braved the gusting south winds to paddle out into an almost-circle in his honor.

Thank you to the Long Beach Township Police Department and Beach Patrol who helped the day run smoothly with parking and beach safety.

You can be sure that Dad loved his extended Long Beach Island Beach family. One of his favorite activities was seeing old faces from summers past or making new friends from his beach chair on the front porch. His memory lives on in all of you with whom he shared his enjoyment for the beach life and the stoke of surfing.
