Jeff MacNelly, an artistic behemoth, who ranged head and shoulders above us, physically at 6'5" and creatively left us in his wake last week.

Jeff's prodigious talent as an artist, cartoonist, sailor and collaborator have graced this uncommon island for the ten years that he and his wife Susie have lived here winters. "He brought amusement and irony to millions - and in the process helped us all get a lighter look at being human." Said one of his enthusiasts.
