TCCC Member in the NEWS
Life Member Howard Nahikian
We were saddened to learn of the passing of one of our life members, Howard Nahikian. Howard joined The Twin City Camera Club in 1984 and was very active in TCCC, volunteering as a scorekeeper and serving as the Club's Treasurer for 10 years. Howard received several awards in film slide competitions including Slide of the Year and 2nd Runner-up. He participated in the SWMCCC competitions and became the Treasurer for both the SWMCCC organization and the Summer School of Photography. He was instrumental in setting up PayPal program for the Summer School and although he commented to me on numerous occasions that he wasn’t knowledgeable about computers, he was the first webmaster for TCCC and set-up the first TCCC website in 2002. Howard was always willing to help out when asked and assisted with the annual judging for many years. We will miss the smiles and laughter that seemed to always be around when he was there. Howard was a wonderful person with great faith and a friend that tried to always be aware of others feelings. We extend our heartfelt sympathy to his wife Janet, his family and friends. He will be missed.
