“My best friend for 65 years, Marc Linsay Newhouse, died August 13, 2022. He was living in Dominical Costa Rica for the past 10 years. He was a well read and intelligent man.  His main pastimes were fishing, crossword puzzles and he could be seen having a few beers at his local dive in Dominical ocasionally. He was returning to his apartment that evening when a flash flood from storms in the mountains washed his SUV with his dog and him out the mouth of the river. His body was recovered up the coast. I had the good fortune to visit him in 2019. He was a good friend and human being who lived life to the fullest. His job as an iron worker took him all over the world, from working on the Alaska pipeline to working in downtown Detroit. He survived looking down the barrel of AK-47’s in West Africa to singing the Russian national anthem on stage in Moscow as part of a diplomatic goodwill delegation, for which he received a standing ovation!!!  He was a dear friend and was loved by all who knew him. The world is a sadder place without him. RIP amigo!!”

John Chonka - thank you for posting your tribute to Marc Newhouse.  I knew part of his story but you provided so many interesting details.  He certainly followed a unique and interesting path. He had so many daring and dangerous adventures, it is ironic that he was swept away by flood waters.
