Just found this on Kevin Modera's website : "Miles Patrick, Rum Point's chef, died unexpectedly on Friday night. Cause of death is unknown, but a coronary failure is suspected." This was dated Monday 22nd October.
Miles was feeling bad and decided to take a nap. He walked up the stairs at Manatee Inn and collapsed. He was dead within seconds. I was told that the autopsy reported he had a lot of lung damage from smoking cigarettes. It is believed that his heart failed due to his lung problem. His friends on the peninsula gathered at Rum Point a week ago Sunday to celebrate his life and mourn his loss.
