Industry veteran Timothy Earl Holmes of Palm City, Fla., died Sept. 13 at his home. He was 56.

Holmes owned Executive Yachts for 30 years. The Stuart, Fla.-based company bills itself as “one of the largest pre-owned Sea Ray brokerages in the country.”

On the company’s website, the family thanked everyone for the “overwhelming response of prayers and love” in response to Holmes’ passing.

“My father, Tim Holmes, enjoyed life to the fullest. From navigating his clients on their first voyage and making the crossing from Stuart, Fla., to the Bahamas to many trips to Maui,” the family said on the website. “We have lost a great man and our hearts are breaking.”
