Gov. Crist: Florida will miss 'The Boss' George Steinbrenner
Gov. Charlie Crist on the death of George Steinbrenner.
"While the public face of George Steinbrenner was a demanding owner, he was extremely generous to others. Many acts of kindness were bestowed to those in need, with most of those acts going unnoticed except by those who benefited.
“I join with fellow Floridians in offering condolences to George’s wife, Joan, sons Hal and Hank, and daughters Jennifer and Jessica, all of whom reside in Tampa.”
Said Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp: "As owner of Tampa’s American Ship Building Company, Mr. Steinbrenner played a significant role in Florida’s economy. And he gave back to his community and state."
