Yankee Candle founder dies.

I was pretty shocked to find out he was only 67 years old. I remember seeing those stores for years. He started making candles when he was 16 and couldn't afford to make his mother a Christmas present. He then made another candle for someone and one to sell. Anyway, he started incredibly small. He sold his company in 1998 and I wonder how he made out on that deal.
