In Memory of Huyler C. Held (1925 - 2012)
We mourn the passing of long-time Fountain House Board Member, Huyler C. Held. Mr. Held was elected to the Board in 1961 and, until his death, faithfully served in many capacities, including as President of the Board. He was a tireless advocate for those living with mental illness and a wise and caring Trustee of our organization.
With the growth of the Fountain House community throughout his tenure as Trustee, he provided guidance and leadership in addressing the challenges confronting the Board and the needs of the Fountain House members. His commitment and clarity of vision were matched by his considerable wit, grace, and warmth. The Fountain House community will miss him greatly, but his immeasurable contributions will be a lasting gift to us all.
Our community remembers Huyler:
I will always remember Huyler as dapper, old worldly, intelligent, wise, honorable, fair and witty. He had high standards and great integrity. He was a dedicated and active Board Member, who brought his leadership skills, legal expertise and financial acumen to the growth and prosperity of our clubhouse and to the creation of the ICCD.
Everyone at Fountain House will miss Huyler and think of him very often. His soul is in our clubhouse forever. -Lorna Hyde Graev, Chair, Fountain House Board of Directors
Huyler and I shared Fountain House, our church, and our community. He was a rare, rare bird. He was wise, he was a scholar, and he was fun - all in one. -Barry Osborn, former Member, Fountain House Board of Directors
It is not easy to capture in words Huyler's unique qualities of humor, intelligence, imagination, and honesty. My grandfather, who was notorious for hiring and firing lawyers, first hired Huyler when he was a young man. That was it - Huyler remained our trusted family lawyer and close friend for 3 generations. I cannot think of specific examples of his humor, but Huyler always had a twinkle in his eye, and had witty and often wise comments about people and situations. His ideas were sound and people trusted his advice, which, among other things, made him the remarkable lawyer that he was. Although he had a self-deprecating wit, he also had strong presence and a forceful personality. I personally will always remember him as a man of great kindness and thoughtfulness and will miss him a great deal. -Carmel W. Fromson, Fountain House Board of Directors
He seemed to be one person who might actually turn out to be immortal..., and now he is gone. If Huyler couldn't do it, there is clearly no hope for the rest of us. He remained so vital and cantankerous (in his own special way) right to the end.
Sometimes in a meeting with Huyler, the image of Yoda, the ancient Jedi master would come to mind. In Huyler there was a sense of ageless age, and also a sense that, if confronted with a threat from the Dark Side of the Force, such as a suggestion that Fountain House could always borrow if necessary, he could suddenly come somersaulting through the air, light saber drawn, ready for battle. -Charles J. Marsden, Treasurer, Fountain House Board of Directors
Huyler provided me with great wisdom and insight. He also gave me a historical perspective that has kept me true to my course and to the fundamental values of the Fountain House he helped to create. When I first met him, he seemed quite imposing and intimidating to me, but I quickly came to understand what a warm and caring person he was and that his interest was always the welfare of his beloved Fountain House.
Fountain House was built by a lot of great women and men; chief among them was Huyler. -Kenneth Dudek, President, Fountain House
Huyler was an important mentor to me when I came to Fountain House to be Director of Development in 1996. Since that time, he has been my touchstone as I helped to build Fountain House. I never made an important decision without asking myself if Huyler would approve - if it would pass, what I called my "Huyler test" (How does this decision impact on Fountain House's capacity to serve its members not only in the present but far into the future?) Huyler never let you take the easy road, particularly when it came to a consideration of what Fountain House would need to continue to provide for its members and staff. And way more often than not, he was right on the money. -Jeffrey Aron, Director of External Relations, Fountain House
It is daunting to me that one can move from being so present in the world to being totally absent in the blink of an eye. Huyler was such a strong presence that he will always be with us in some way. And, in spite of his curmudgeonly ways, it was always clear how much he cared about Fountain House members. He would so often ask just the question that put everything into perspective. -Anne Mai, Fountain House Board of Directors
Huyler was such a sheet anchor for Fountain House, and for us old timers he was particularly important.
I always viewed Huyler as the living memory of the House and really got to know him when I persuaded him to talk to new Board members about Fountain House history.
