Laurie Brokenshire: puzzler

I first met Laurie Brokenshire when he attended a NY Puzzle Party and gave a presentation about puzzle vessels. He displayed a very impressive collection of those types of puzzles too.  The article below shows his collection.

I got to know Laurie better over the years. Nancy & I stayed at his and Ethel’s house in 2018.

About 3 years ago the boys choir at my school chose this song to sing: http://chickenonaraft.com/ ^(http://chickenonaraft.com/)  I wondered about the lyrics and asked Laurie for some analysis. I forwarded it to the chorus teacher who was a bit shocked.

Sadly, Laurie passed away last summer and this is his obituary in the Telegram.
