Professional yachtsman Owen Edward Minney passed away peacefully at home Dec. 14. In his last words, he summed it up: “If heaven can’t live up to it’s reputation, I will be disappointed because living on earth has been a spectacular adventure. I will be sorry to go because every day was a party.

“God bless all my friends, relatives and loved ones and thank you to the wonderful people in the sailing community. I will see you all in heaven.”
