BROKEN PIPE... We Mourn the Passing of Dear Friend, Master Carver & Innovator Rolando Negoita

It is with great sadness and sorrow to have to report the news of Rolando's passing on 2/9/2021.

Please join me in raising bowls in memory and honor of our dear friend and brother, Master Pipe Carver and innovator in pipe design, Rolando Negoita. 

As many of us know, from spending hours with him at many Kaywoodie Events over the years, I can tell you that he was one of the most intelligent, nicest, kindest and gentlest souls I have ever had the privilege of knowing. 

Rolando was a faithful "regular" of the December Holiday party, the Kaywoodie Event, as well as the NY Pipe Show and others.


We will all miss him dearly.

On behalf of the entire NY Pipe Club, I extend our deepest condolences to Rolando's family at this time of sorrow.

I don’t know what say… Live and Love, my friends, life is too short…
