His wife wrote:
“Herbert Kouts was an avid reader and he loved to travel to places all over this country and the world. He loved to sail and kept various sailboats in the Bay near our house. He also was a music lover and he enjoyed attending symphonies, chamber music concerts, ballet, and the opera. He liked to work on our house in Bellport, painting and fixing things. He enjoyed being with his children and grandchildren. And he also loved to fix delicious meals for all of us!”
A resident of Bellport, Herbert Kouts is survived by his wife Barbara; daughters Catherine Sigmon and Anne Golden; stepsons Francis Spitzer, Michael Spitzer, and Daniel Spitzer; and nine grandchildren.
