The US Virgin Islands benefited greatly from his work. He was the President of the Virgin Islands America's Cup Challenge and his work including serving as Commodore of the Virgin Islands Sailing Association and as a delegate to the Virgin Islands Olympic Committee.
Dick was still racing his J-36 Blue Bayou and cruising his trawler Yonder. He will be remembered by sailors from Antigua to Beaufort NC for his blustery voice, gentle manner and sailing prowess.
ISAF extends their sincere condolences to Dick's wife Louise, and his stepson's Peter and John HOLMBERG.
