Kenneth (Kenny) J. Miller, 57, passed away last Thursday (June 30) in a local hospital near his Connecticut home. Kenny was one of the last true, on your hand and knees sailmaker. He grew up in the Chicago area where he learned to sail. During his career he worked at Murphy/Nye in Chicago (IL), UK Sails in Seabrook (TX), Melges Sails in Zenda (WI) and North Sails in Milford (CT). He was hard worker, a sweet soul and good father to his three children: Chandler (28), Travis (26) and Emily (15).

While he was in Texas, we were all that age where his children, along with mine and associate Terry Flynnís, were all born at the same time and we all spent a lot of good times with each other, our spouses and our kids. That was a very special time for all of us. For all of us who worked with Kenny, we will miss him dearly and only hope he is in better place today, as we have lost a really good sailmaker and close friend. - Farley Fontenot, Executive Vice President, Quantum Sail Design Group
