Default Chris Wachtel Passed Away

For those in the local diving community, Chris Wachtel, anaccomplished diver and instructor passed away unexpectedly last Friday. He was CFO at a local bank and owned and operated a Dive Charter Business. His boat was named the TechRec and he was on the Oriskany every weekend with divers.

His ashes will be placed inside a scuba tank and will be laid to restdeep inside the Oriskany at a later date. He loved the Oriskany and diving.

He will be missed by family and hundreds of friends. The diving community lost a greatfriend.

Yes, Chris will be missed.He was an awesome diver and great individual. For those fortunate enough to spend time with him, you couldn't help but learn something new. Chriswas my Instructor when I returned home to Pensacola and I will miss our friendly banter over who was "The World's Greatest Dive Instructor". Prayers to his family for strength and peace.
