DXP Enterprises, Inc. (DXPE) sadly announced today that Kenneth H. Miller, a member of the Company's Board of Directors since 1996, has passed away.
DXP's Chairman of the Board and CEO, David Little, said, "We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Kenneth Miller on April 14, 2012. On behalf of the Board of Directors and employees of DXP, we extend our deepest condolences to his family, friends and colleagues. Ken was an accomplished businessman and as a board member, brought valuable experience to DXP. He was always prepared on the issues and cared deeply about DXP. His commitment to DXP will be greatly missed.”
Ken was born in 1939 in St. Louis. He attended a Jesuit high school and even explored becoming a Jesuit priest. Ken ultimately earned an accounting degree from the University of Houston, where he was a member of Sigma Chi fraternity. Before retiring as a CPA and expert witness, he explored many careers, including owning a car dealership and serving as an FBI agent. He even named his beloved dog after J. Edgar (Hoover). Ken is remembered for his professionalism, integrity, and loyalty - even showing up for a deposition the day after his house burned down. A lifelong car enthusiast, he never met a Porsche he didn’t like. Friends admired his meticulous restoration of countless cars and motorcycles and knew no one was better at using tie wraps and duct tape. For Ken, the best part of car racing was the preparation.
