Cass took the time to send an email and words of encouragement when our son graduated BUDS.
He was a class act IMO.

I often think about him ... not really knowing him.

RIP, sir.

Thanks for posting this. So cool. Cass was a part of our history, our DNA. We were blessed to have him here on SOCNET. Miss him posting here every day.

Great video. Such a fine gentleman. A very modest man.

God bless him.

I only exchanged a few PM's with him and his posts were always an example of the above. His humble sageness is missed by me and I am sure most everyone here. The video was a great tribute.

I miss sitting down for our occasional lunch and storytelling. He was a real treasure.

leopardprey 12 August 2017 15:02

Sure do miss Cass, his posts and several PMs we shared as well. He was a man of adventure and wisdom. He is much missed and was the "Grandfather" figure of SOCNET.

We stopped by last month(around the one year mark) and got to see his permanent marker and pay our respects. My kids asked why it was so important. I told them about what an honorable man he was and how he served his country in the most awesome ways. They asked a lot of questions and I did my best to answer what I could. They were genuinely interested. I think they get it.

Thank you Cass. You leave a wake of admiration and honor that will continue into the future. My children will teach their children this same level of respect. You have made such an impression on so many that will last so long.

I am very grateful for Socnet, as without it I would not have the privilege to interact with such outstanding men and learn so much and gain such perspective on so many aspects of life. Thank you Socnet, for making it possible for my family to get a glimpse into a world they would otherwise be blind to. I appreciate being allowed to be a guest in this house of yours. God bless.

Thanks T86. I've often wanted to put A voice to this amazing man.

Wow. I saw this video years ago. I never connected the dots that this was Cass until now. Thanks for re-sharing this Trident86.
And continue to RIP, Cass. Your legacy will endure.

Paid my respects to Ken/Cass today. Was in the area for work, so I had to make the trip. Continue to RIP, Frogman.

Cass...Iím sitting in China, far from our home country, but...what an amazing man. Thereís nothing I can say. I vanished for several years and people that I learned from, left us. I respect all of you immensely. Cass...fair winds, and following seas.
