Henry William Klimm III of Falmouth, who spent the majority of his life in and around the ocean, died October 27. He was 86.

A lifelong Cape Codder, he was the son of Henry W. Klimm Jr. and Edna (Lannquist) Klimm and was a third-generation fisherman. He started fishing with his father in the summer at the age of 10. He also learned about engines at the Woods Hole Garage co-owned by his father for many years; he would put these skills to use during fishing trips if engine troubles arose and was able to diagnose and repair nearly everything on the boat.
