Rest in Peace Mr. Garrett.

Kip 19 July 2016 19:11

Damn. His posts were always full of wisdom and interesting tidbits.

RIP, Cass.

Jimbo 19 July 2016 19:13

Cass may have passed from this earthly bullshit, but his wisdom, shared here, Will provide positive guidance for generations of Americans. His humility, humor and positive mental attitude should be emulated by us all.

Rest easy, sir. You are missed.

Chimo 19 July 2016 19:13

Sad to read this. A true legend who set and lived a very high standard in all things.

The Fat Guy 19 July 2016 19:43


You always kept me straight and I deeply appreciated your Wisdom. You were the Frogman I always wanted to be.

Rest Peacefully, You are my hero.

Chesie 19 July 2016 19:53

RIP Cass. I always thought of you as an enormously thoughtful person.

Sad news..RIP Sir.

UncleTx 19 July 2016 20:02

RIP Sir. Loved the wisdom in your posts. You will be missed by many.

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.

Dogwelder 19 July 2016 20:52

RIP Sir........:(

Lurked for a long time on this site.......and there are some posters that I am always on the lookout for, as their input drives me into further critical thinking. Cass and SOTB were two of those that I would immediately stop and reread to process what they said. Two amazing giants who have left a big hole here and in our country. I've only met one person on here, yet everytime we lose one it feels like a kick in the gut. Fair winds and calm seas Cass. Your life was the epitome of honorable service. Thank you.

Atrax 19 July 2016 21:05

What a life he led. Thank you for your incredible service to this country Sir.

SF_BHT 19 July 2016 21:14

Rest in Peace Cass.....

You have served and now you are on your way to the ORP. You will be missed..

GracieLou 19 July 2016 21:15

Fair winds Cass! May you rest peacefully...

BionicDamien 19 July 2016 21:21

I know that his wife was dealing with dementia and I'm certain you guys that are in the know already know, but for the rest of us --- can we help?

Rough Raven 19 July 2016 21:34

I'm speechless and heartbroken all over again. Fair winds, Cass. If anyone deserves to rest in peace after such a storied life...

jdogonroad 19 July 2016 21:47

I am speechless.

Rest in Peace, good Sir.

Hope to see you in the Great Hall

BionicDamien 19 July 2016 21:54

[QUOTE=jdogonroad;1058579707]I am speechless.

Rest in Peace, good Sir.

Hope to see you in the Great Hall[/QUOTE]

I'm also speechless, just that the first thought that came to mind was his wife who I gathered he cared very much for.

So just to clarify, that's why I asked. I had the idea that that's exactly how he'd want it.

fy0834 19 July 2016 21:59

Cass was a salt of the earth type of guy... Always very supportive.
He sent me several PM's when our son completed BUD's.
I know during that time he would visit his wife daily at the nursing home, as she had been admitted with alheimers.
Did he survive her?
Lost touch over the years... May this good man rest in peace.

ex 19 July 2016 22:02

I'm heartbroken. Ken was such a sweetheart.

Rest in peace, my friend.
