Lost touch over the years... May this good man rest in peace.
I spoke to him last month and she was still alive.

Cass' recollections were one of the highlights of this site.

This place isn't the same without Cass and SOTB.

Agreed. Too much Blue Falcon and not enough of, well, you know.

All,
This is a thread to memorialize a man who meant a great deal to this site. It's not for discussion of his private business or any snarky comments about others.

Rip Cass.
Like everyone else, each time I saw a post by him in a thread, I always looked forward to whatever bit of knowledge, or humor he was adding to the discussion.

Ken and I had linked up on a couple occasions for lunch, the last time being 6 June. As always it was good conversation and I was honored to have spent time with him.
I had reached out recently via several avenues and had not gotten a reply which concerned me. I was just about to take another route for contact when I just saw this. I am very saddened by this news.
I don't have any other words right now......

I just heard about this. Sorry, to hear about Cass. I always enjoyed his tongue and cheek posts.

He was truly one of the legendary Americans that made America great.

Another extraordinary member of SOCNET, with a life he served, fought and lived in I sometimes couldn't wrap my head around. A legend, absolutely and he lived history alright.

Rest In Peace, Sir.

Cass forged a path that was followed by generations of Frogmen and SEALS. The word hero can be an overused term at times, but in this case it fits.

RIP Mr. Garrett. Thank you for your service, and the knowledge and wisdom you have given us.

His presence was incredible. I'd always read his posts twice.
Rest in peace, Cass.

My sincere condolences to the rest of you SEALs for the loss to your community and history.

The passing of Cass and SOTB reminded me of a moment, that I imagine every man goes through at some point. I looked at one of the older shooters at a club match, a guy who I always much respected, and suddenly realized, that the number of times I would see him again was limited and finite. That whatever wisdom he had to pass, I had to glean in the shortest of times, because there wasn't much time left. And it made me think of how much time is wasted throughout the day, on things that have little value. Cass has reminded me of this moment again, and I wish him well, and hope to honor him, by trying not to waste time, but spend it with people I respect and care about.
