California lost its best friend today. I’m utterly saddened by Huell Howser’s passing. He exemplified curiosity and had a fabulous knack for connecting with people. There was no better advocate for telling California’s stories, preserving its history, and discovering its treasures.
Liz (@gypsylizzie) said it well,
“I think what most upsets me about his passing is that, without him, Californians, and even California itself, might no longer be what Huell thought we were. If he’s not here to see us that way, maybe we aren’t. I love Huell’s California. I love what he saw in us. I’m sorry for our loss.”
So long, Huell.
