Lee H. Kimmell, former CEO of American Marine Holdings, died Oct. 18 at age 68. Kimmell had been at the helm of American Marine Holdings, the parent company of Donzi and Pro-Line, for nearly 15 years when the company was sold.

During his tenure, Donzi introduced the ZR series of performance boats; the 38 ZRC won world and national championships in the Factory 2 class of offshore powerboat racing. When the company introduced the 38 ZRC at the Miami boat show, Kimmell predicted that the boat would win the world and national championships.

Kimmell stepped down from AMH in 2009 when a private investor purchased the company.
