Libertarian Party, movement mourns passing of International Society for Individual Liberty President Vince Miller

I last saw Vince Miller at the LP National Convention in Denver. According to Tom Knapp, Vince got Valley Fever soon after Denver, although the doctors at first thought it was pneumonia. I am saddened that Vince is no longer with us.

Eric Garris writes at antiwar.com blog,

In lieu of cards or flowers those wishing to honor him are asked to contribute to Vince’s life cause, the International Society for Individual Liberty. The most appropriate way to show appreciation for Vince is to do something for liberty. It was his passion and his great love.

The LP release follows:

Party mourns passing of International Society for Individual Liberty President

Offers gratitude for Miller’s service in his work for more liberty

The Libertarian National Committee expresses our sorrow on the passing of Vince Miller, president of the International Society for Individual Liberty (ISIL). His many accomplishments include the founding in 1980 of Libertarian International, which subsequently merged with the Society for Individual Liberty to become ISIL. He was a champion of liberty and a good friend of the Libertarian Party; he labored tirelessly and well to build the freedom movement.

We offer our gratitude to Mr. Miller for his great work for liberty, our condolences to his family and many friends, and our best wishes to ISIL for its continued success.

The Libertarian Party is America’s third largest political party, founded in 1971 as an alternative to the two main political parties. You can find more information on the Libertarian Party by visiting www.LP.org. The Libertarian Party proudly stands for smaller government, lower taxes and more freedom.

    Very sad news. Kent Snyder (Ron Paul campaign chairman) also died recently of pneumonia. Apparently it can be quite the terrible afflication.

    We must continue the struggle for freedom so as their efforts were not made in vain.
