Wireless headsets provider Vxi Corporation announced today the passing of their company’s founder and Chairman of the Board on September 14, 2010 at the age of 78.
According to company officials, Dodge Morgan, who was also an avid sailor, journalist and entrepreneur, died from complications of cancer surgery.
“Dodge was a fearless maverick, who loved his family, sailing and business while living life to the fullest,” said Michael Ferguson, president and CEO at VXi. “We offer our condolences to Dodge’s family as we at VXi mourn the loss of a leader, a visionary, a colleague and a friend.”
Dover, New Hampshire-based VXi Corporation provides wireless headset solutions for clear, reliable voice communications.
Morgan founded VXi in 1989 shortly after starting UNEX, as a division of his company Controlonics, a communications products manufacturer.
After selling Controlonics in 1984 to Dynatech Corporation, company officials said Morgan was able to, “fulfill his life-long dream of sailing around the world,” and was the first American and third person to ever sail non-stop around the globe in 150 days, 1 hour and 6 minutes.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Dodge David Morgan’s name to The Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Boston, Mass. are being accepted.
