In your section on 2016 celebrity passings, you neglected to mention Stanley Dural, also known as Buckwheat Zydeco [Dec. 30].

Zydeco appeared on Long Island many times — at the Inter-Media Arts Center in Huntington, Theatre Three in Port Jefferson and the Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett. He always put on a good show for Long Islanders, and he deserved a mention in your paper.

Michael Doskotz, South Setauket

Correction: The spelling of Michael Doskotz has been corrected. His name was misspelled in the original version.
