Chief Eng. Maurice White was killed in a hit-and-run accident while riding his bicycle in Ft. Lauderdale in early March. He was 46.

Mr. White was riding his bike about 2:45 a.m. on Sunday, March 1, eastbound on State Road 84 approaching I-95 when he was hit from behind, according to the Broward Sheriff’s Office. Emergency personnel pronounced him dead at the scene.

Police have arrested the man they believe struck Mr. White, Carlos Miguel Lee, 26, of Davie. He was being held without bond for violating probation.

A frequent guest of Triton events, Mr. White was sociable and friendly, quick with a smile and willing to chat. He also participated in the Triton Today surveys during boat shows, sharing with our readers that his favorite thing to do when he had time off was to travel to placed he’s never been.

“It’s why I do this job,” he said during the Palm Beach show in 2013 when he was chief engineer on the 151-foot M/Y Golden Compass.

Mr. White was from Ireland and is survived by siblings in Gainesville and Ireland, according to a news report.
