Heart attack claims Hodwell PDF Print

Hodwell cutting his 74th birthday cake
The Rio Dulce lost one of its most delightful, cantankerous, compassionate, entertaining, boisterous and lovable ol' farts yesterday (Aug. 4) when Hodwell, 75, apparently suffered a heart attack and fell into the river at his home on Butter Bay in Cayo Quemado.

Attempts to revive him failed and he was taken to Livingston where he was pronounced dead at 6:30 p.m.

Known simply as "Hodwell" of s/v Bonnie, he was easily identified by his bushy beard, twinkling eyes, lengthy stories and anecdotes -- and sometimes raucous behavior.

Those of us who knew him well, loved him.

He leaves behind Sandy ("Butter Hod"), his companion for many years, and many, many friends in the Cayo Quemado community and boaters and bikers throughout the world.

Memorial service details will be published in the near future.

(Editor's Note: This article has been changed from the original to show that the medical examiner ruled that Hodwell died of a heart attack instead of drowning. He apparently suffered the heart attack while standing at the edge of their palapa at Butter Bay then fell backwards into the water. His body will be cremated in Guatemala City then taken to New York by his son. Donations for Sandy can be made by contacting This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it )
