Charter broker dies

ADVERTISEMENT

Elizabeth Candler “Candy” Isdale of Narragansett passed away peacefully at her home on July 3 after a fight against multiple myeloma. She was 70 years old.

Ms. Isdale was president of Custom Charter Yachts Ltd. and a licensed travel agent to offer all aspects of travel including charter yachts to her clients.  She was a member and former president (2003-2007) of the American Yacht Charter Association (AYCA).

“Typical of her strong constitution and spirit, Candy insisted on attending our annual June meeting in Newport just a week before her passing,” said current President DJ Parker, owner of Neptune Group Yachting in Ft. Lauderdale.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made in honor of Dr. Umberto Capuano for his care of Ms. Isdale at South County Hospital, 100 Kenyon Ave., Wakefield, RI 02879 (www.schospital.com) or to the Grab The Torch Isdale Scholarship Fund for Youth Leadership, Ethics and Philanthropy, Box 24, Nahant, MA 01908.

She is survived by her husband, George M. “Dooie” Isdale Jr., former Commodore of the New York Yacht Club; her son Greg and daughter Elizabeth, and three grandsons.
