Capt. Arthur Kimberly, “Skipper” as he was known throughout the world by his shipmates and friends, died peacefully at home in Florida on Sept. 17, 2011. Capt. Kimberly and his wife Gloria owned and sailed the brigantine ROMANCE for over 20 years, twice around the world and on countless trips to the South Pacific, throughout the West Indies, and other waters.
