Sad news on the island today as we learned that Leonard Meeker, former U.S. Ambassador to Romania from 1969 to 1973, died yesterday afternoon (Nov. 29) at home attended by his wife, Beverly, and son, James.
The Observer will post a tribute to his extraordinary life in the next several days.  Details of any memorials will be forthcoming when the family makes arrangements. In the meantime, our deepest sympathies go out to his family.
