Remembering Tim Mills – Newport Harbormaster

 With the passing of our HarborMaster, Tim Mills. the city has lost a dear friend and protector of the waterfront.  Tim’s attention to maritime safety and cooperation were legendary.    His overriding sense of integrity and fairness was consistent and pervasive for all. 

Tim loved being on the water – especially at Christmas with lights reflecting upon our jewel of Newport Harbor.   The Holiday Parade of Lights was a favorite of Tim’s and just one of the special events that he oversaw to the enjoyment of locals and visitors alike.   Let us remember Tim this season and always for all his contributions and his lifetime love of the harbor.    Our sincere condolences to his family and friends.
