Huyler Held was a wonderful advocate for historic preservation. Long Island has a richer and more beautiful historic landscape thanks to his tireless efforts.

As a member of the Roslyn Landmark Society and a Board officer I wish to express a deep sense of loss over the death of Huyler C. Held. We came to know him as a trusted mentor and supportive friend. He will be missed but always remembered. Anne B. and Cecil K. Tinder

We are losing a wonderful man that has paved the way for all of us to look forward. Huyler will be missed. I really enjoyed our tour of projects together, talking with residents, and having lunches throughout the years. Huyler was a man of character, and made a tremendous contribution to many organizations and causes, including Enterprise.

Thanks to a person who cared and led the way.
