Wish I could have met him in person, but loved his posts and the few IMs we shared. He was a funny and amazing old codger!

RIP, Cass.

RIP Cass. It was such an honor to meet you. I will cherish these memories forever.

During our first rendezvous Cass offered me a token of friendship. He was such a kind, attentive, and just larger-than-life person.

Fair winds and following seas Sir. See you in Valhalla.

Chris-Harper 19 July 2016 17:59

Wished he had written a book. It would have been a great read.

RIP Cass...

RIP Cass

Amazing how much he experienced over his lifetime.

bugeater 19 July 2016 18:06

Rest in Peace Cass. Terrible to hear...

Expatmedic 19 July 2016 18:09

Two of the best on SOCNET gone in such a short span. I am saddened to see this.

I only knew Cass's online personality, always polite, professional, and humorous.

A few lifetimes of experience in a multitude of professions. What a life.

I loved reading his posts about his life experiences and history he helped make.

The SOCNET and the world is a lesser place.

Rest in peace.

DevilDawg 19 July 2016 18:12

Stretch 19 July 2016 20:15

RIP Sailor.

You will be missed.

Ken did some "off books" vetting of SEALs, upon my behest, after he retired from vetting on this site. He was always spot on.

I hope you and Andy are having a big time.


Forestboy 19 July 2016 20:16

Well shit.

R.I.P. Frogman.....

Frog 19 July 2016 20:16

[QUOTE=JAFO;1058579546]Damn. Besides being one of the first Frogmen, Cass was a superb human being. Keeper of "The List" for a very long time, he was my go to guy for verification's. The wife and I were just talking last week about linking up with him again on our next trip to SF, CA. You will be missed sir. Fair Winds Warrior......[/QUOTE]

Yeah, I felt a little off kilter when he handed me the torch as a keeper of the BUD/S list when he decided to retire from phony checking. His mentor ship guided my responses with a no emotion factual answer. You either graduated from BUD/S or you didn't. Period. Ken, I keep the torch lit for not only you but for all of us. Hoo Yah Navy Frogman!

Fubar 19 July 2016 20:18

Fair winds and following seas to our brother Cass. What a sad day.

just11b 19 July 2016 20:40

Sad day indeed. Goodbye Cass.

Rest In Peace, Warrior.

Typhoon 19 July 2016 20:40

RIP Cass. Everyone who I spoke to who knew him thought so highly of him and held him in the highest esteem. My condolences to all here who knew Cass. My thoughts and prayers out to his family.

Justaclerk 19 July 2016 20:41

Fair winds, sir, you are legend.

sarc88 19 July 2016 20:51

Vaya con Dios Ken, I'm grateful for your service to our Navy and this nation.
