Bo Bennett died in the summer of 2014 with a copy of my book, THESE PRECIOUS DAYS at his side in the hospital. He died from alcholism. I will always say that the Gulf Stream killed him. Bo was a very close friend of mine since youth. We spent our summers together diving the Pam Beach and Stuart, Florida areas. Bo became the dive master for the Turniffe Island Dive Lodge located on a small island forty miles off the coast of Belieze. When his uncle sold the island it nearly killed him as by that time the ocean had stolen his soul. These are some of the photographs that I took of Bo three years before he died. As it turned out, this was the very last diving and fishing he ever did. After his death his mother thanked me for having taken him on this month long trip down to Big Pine Key where we were the guests of Charlie Chappel. While there we ventured into Key West on one outting and went to Sloppy Joe's Bar. Bo did all he could to land a new girlfriend while we were there.
