Philanthropist Howard Aibel of Weston, Conn., has died.

Aibel was a vice chair of the Westport Country Playhouse, which recently renamed its campus after him.

In an interview with WSHU, Aibel said he wanted to make his biggest impact as a philanthropist by giving $3 million to the Country Playhouse, which he did earlier this year.

The Westport Country Playhouse will be renaming its theater complex after Playhouse Trustee Howard J. Aibel, who donated $3 million to the not-for-profit this week.

The Playhouse says $500,000 will be designated for current operations, another half a million for working capital reserve, and $2 million as a bequest to establish an endowment.

The campus will soon be renamed the Howard J. Aibel Theater Center at the Westport Country Playhouse.
