Most think of Montauk Lighthouse as the easternmost structure on Long Island, but there is actually a structure farther east at Land’s End: The Lost at Sea Memorial. The bronze statue, created by artist Malcolm Frazier with the assistance of his wife, Adrienne Collins, was completed and dedicated 20 years ago. On Sunday, October 20, friends, family, lighthouse staff, Montauk Historical Society board members, and others gathered to pay respects to the 120 fishermen who lost their lives at sea and never had a proper burial. Speakers included Frazier and Joe Gaviola, the lighthouse’s keeper. Local musician Lori Hubbard sang a passionate rendition of “Eternal Father, Strong to Save,” also known as The Navy Hymn.
