Lost an airboater

Postby BluByU2 » Sun Oct 30, 2016 6:53 pm

I just read this on Facebook, and I have no way to confirm this information. I read where "Camo Ken" passed away. Has anyone else heard this tragic news? If it is true, he will be sorely missed by all airboaters, and I pray God bring comfort to his family, and dear friends. May he rest in peace, and I will never view his videos the same way. :(

Unfortunately, it's true . Ken was bigger than life in the Swamp because of the CCA videos. He will be missed no doubt.

I was told from a close friend of Ken's that I work with he took his own life. It's a very sad thing to lose a good friend and fellow airboater. Prayers sent to family and friends .

Very sad if so, he was a very lively fun loving guy. But you never know what a person has going on in their life.

Prayers for all affected.
