Walter Hekster and Nathalie Ahern in Dresden Mills, Maine, at the Cate Farm under the old blue spruce, September 1998.
R.I.P. WALTER HEKSTER
March 29, 1937 – December 31, 2012
Here we scatter all these motes
Of his ashes like the notes
He composed, like the sands
Of time that passed through his good hands,
Both the sinister and dexter,
Of our dear friend Walter Hekster.
Statue of Walter Hekster by David Bade at the Fundatie Museum in Zwolle, Netherlands, from November 28, 2013, until April 2014, with his widow, Alice Van Leuvan Hekster: “The orange thing is his clarinet!”
