It is with great regret we mark the passing of a much loved longtime member Louie Hernandez. I didn’t know Louie that well having come to the hobby relatively lately and especially to ZNA NorCal, but I always saw him at our events and anything else remotely related to koi in the area.
Dinh tells me Louie was actually the first member to sign up when he re-founded ZNA NorCal. Earlier this year we made Louie an Honorary Lifetime Member. We had hoped he’d be able to enjoy that for many more years. That wasn’t to be, but Louie will be remembered a long time by koi keepers on the West coast and no doubt far beyond our region.
We’ll miss you Louie.
