  • East Hampton Town


        With summer coming, the ice-cream man will get another chance, the East Hampton Town Board decided on Tuesday.

  •     Kennett Love, who as a reporter for The New York Times saw firsthand the toppling of Prime Minister Mohammed Mossadegh of Iran in 1953, died on May 13 at Southampton Hospital. He was 88 and had lived in Sag Harbor. The cause was respiratory failure, his partner, Blair Seagram, said.
        According to an obituary in The Times, Mr. Love began work there in the paper’s clipping file rooms, known as the morgue, in 1948, after a short stint as a reporter at the Hudson-Dispatch in Union City, N.J. He became a reporter at The Times in 1950.

  •      Jeffrey Havlik, a retired member of the East Hampton Town Marine Patrol and a longtime member of the Montauk Fire Department, died in Montauk on Friday, a week after celebrating his 59th birthday. His death, caused by undiagnosed heart problems, was unexpected.

  •     Peter V. Darrow, who had a 35-year career as a corporate lawyer and had been a part-time resident of Sag Harbor for more than 30 years, died on Sunday at New York Presbyterian Hospital. His death was due to complications of multiple myeloma, for which he had been treated for four years, his family said. He was 62.

  •     Family was most important to Denise May Schramm, who lived for many years on Actors Colony Road on North Haven. Her love of children, no matter whose, attracted all the neighborhood kids, said Robert Schramm, her husband of 61 years. “I’m sure many of the now-adult kids from years gone by will have fond memories of her and the times we all had,” he said.
        Mrs. Schramm died at home on Sunday, family members at her side. She was 84 and had been diagnosed with hydrocephalus a year and a half earlier, her husband said.

  •     Lillian Wils, who lived in Sag Harbor for more than 50 years, died last Thursday at Southampton Hospital of cardiac arrest. She was 87.
        Mrs. Wils and her husband, Harry Wils Sr., raised seven children, all of whom survive her.
        A lover of cooking shows and Lifetime movies on Sunday afternoons, she was described by her children as a woman who didn’t like to be fussed with.

  •     A celebration of the life of Bob Bennett of Amagansett, who died in January, will be held at the American Legion Hall in Amagansett at noon on June 1.
        The family has asked that anyone with stories about Mr. Bennett, “humorous or otherwise,” come and share them, or write them down for someone else to read out.

  •     A memorial service for Ernest Leroy Thomsen, a retired East Hampton Town police officer who died on Feb. 20, will be held at the Old Whalers Church in Sag Harbor on June 1 at noon.

  • Golfers Win
        The East Hampton High School golf team on Monday at the Indian Island course in Riverhead won its fifth division title in a row as Ian Lynch led the way with a 76, earning the senior a spot in the tourney’s second day, along with his teammate, Matt Griffiths, a junior, who shot a 79.
        “It kind of takes the sting out of the fall season when we finished third, behind Southampton and Pierson,” said East Hampton’s coach, Claude Beudert.
