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.
