Default Friend from work passed from a diving accident

I work at Nas whiting and found out this morning a buddy that I work with has passed due to a diving accident this past weekend. I think it was decompression related and was taken to mobile. I'm trying to find out more details. Has anybody heard of this accident?

How about a name I don't think it would be dis respectable. Someone might know him and let us know. If there is a reason not to I would understand.

He has worked out at nas whiting for many years in the Paraloft. I've talked to him many times about fishing and diving. I've been thinking about getting scuba certified but when I hear of scuba related accidents, I become reluctant. I know everything we do has some inherent risk. I still havent heard exactly what went wrong.

Don't know Wells as I associated with NAS Pensacola. Go get certified just learn the rules and physics of diving and abide by them. You take more chances walking across the street than diving. Try Dive Pros for instructions.

Although this is a tragic loss, don't let it discourage you from diving. Most accidents happen due to poor service of dive equipment or panic. If you service your gear right and don't panic you will have an absolute blast.

Do you know what charter he was on, and whether he was diving traditional scuba or a rebreather?
