ROCK HALL, Md. (AP)- A well-known Delaware entrepreneur has been found dead after the boat he and two others were in capsized along Maryland's Eastern Shore.
    
Maryland Department of Natural Resources Police spokeswoman Candy Thomson tells local media that 57-year-old Willis Duckery Sr.'s body was recovered at 10 a.m. Monday.
    
The others on the boat, a 15-year-old boy and 58-year-old Lewis Blackiston, were taken to a hospital. Their conditions weren't available Monday.
    
Thomson says the boat capsized Sunday night during a storm. Blackiston was able to swim to shore and call 911.
    
Rescue crews responded and found the teen near the boat.
    
Duckery, an Air Force veteran who retired in 2002, owned the Fairways Inn strip club in Smyrna and had recently purchased Bubba's nightclub, which he used to draw live performances to Dover. He also opened a used car dealership and managed comedians.
