Hello all, I am writing to you all in search of more information on a gentleman nmaed Larry Windley. My husband is a Windley. Our children brough home a book about coral. In reading them the book we found a picture and information about a man named Larry Windley who co-founded the Maui Divers of Hawaii. This company apparently was very instrumental in developing techniques for finding and obtaining Black coral along with many other types of coral. I cant find anything else on him though.
He is only breifly mentioned in the book. We are trying to see if we can somehow link him to our line of the Windley family.
I found via a church website a Larry Windley Born in Brooklyn, Kings, New York on August 20, 1946 and who died at a relatively young age on May 15, 1990.
Here is an article I found online with the same picture in the book after clicking on the link go to page 2. Larry Windley is the gentleman on the right. http://spo.nmfs.noaa.gov/mfr552/mfr5527.pdfhttp://spo.nmfs.noaa.gov/mfr552/mfr5527.pdf
