Sailor Passing

2 days ago a fellow Sailor fell overboard off a barge here in Florida, Sean Cheney was a good Tug Sailor and young kid at 25 just beginning his career, How bout ringing the bell on your vessels as he enters Sailor Heaven and a prayer for his family, The barge was within swimming distance from shore and 20 ft of water, ALWAYS WEAR YOUR LIFE VEST.

I am sorry to hear that!! His family will be in my prayers!
Everyone be safe out there!

Thank you for sharing that. Will pray for his family today.

This is another example of why we take the safety precautions we do, even when they seem needless. Such a tragic loss. RIP

Sorry to hear the loss of your shipmate.

I experienced the loss of a friend & classmate last month who died while working on a dive boat. He was only 19. I think of him often.
There is a special bond between sailors I’ve not seen elsewhere.

Thoughts and prayers to family, friends and the memory of Sean Cheney.
