Jazz owner Larry Miller dies

Quote:
SALT LAKE CITY (TICKER) —The Utah Jazz lost their patriarch on Friday, as team owner Larry H. Miller died at the age of 64 due to complications from type 2 diabetes.

The team announced that Miller passed away at his home, surrounded by family members.

Miller had endured severe health problems recently and had both of his legs removed below the knee last month.

The owner of the Jazz for the last 23 years, Miller first purchased 50 percent of the franchise in 1985, then took care of the remaining half just one year later and helped make the team an institution in Salt Lake City.

He is one of the most prominent and well-known businessmen in the Salt Lake metro area, owning 39 auto dealerships and several movie theaters, among many other business ventures. He is survived by his wife Gail, four sons, one daughter and 21 grandchildren.

Sad... He just couldn't control his eating habits. Such a shame. He was a great owner.

Re: Jazz owner Larry Miller dies

The Jazz will be putting these patches on their jerseys for the remainder of the year, in honor of LHM:



Being a resident of Utah it's hard to be a fan of the Jazz and not sit back and admire how much he's done for both the team and the state. The Utah Jazz would not be in Utah if it weren't for LHM, as the team was going to be sold to Minnesota and Larry Miller bought the remainder of the team for quite a bit of money (when the franchise was not profitable), and look where it is now.

A hell of a guy, and a big loss for the Jazz and the state. RIP Larry. Thanks.

Very cool of the Jazz to put those patches on their jerseys for the rest of the season.
