RIP ! that Sacermento syndrome gets them all the time. Kenny Rogers say got to know when to hold them and when to fold them meaning when to dive and when not to dive.

For some reason the links don't work:

Body of diver pulled from Salt Point State Park

By GUY KOVNER
THE PRESS DEMOCRAT

Published: Sunday, November 22, 2009 at 3:00 a.m.
Last Modified: Sunday, November 22, 2009 at 9:41 p.m.

An unidentified diver's body was pulled from the ocean at Salt Point State Park on Sunday by the Sonoma County Sheriff's helicopter crew.
The helicopter, deputies and state parks lifeguards responded to a report of a person floating face down in the water near Horseshoe Cove about 1 p.m., Sgt. Dave Thompson said in a press release.
The diver, wearing a wetsuit, was partially out of the water when Paramedic Scott Westrope was lowered to him on a 100-foot line attached to the helicopter.
Pilot Paul Bradley lifted Westrope and the man to the top of the bluffs surrounding the cove, where the man was determined to be dead, Thompson said.
In a separate incident, just as the mission was completed, hikers reported someone stranded on a rocky outcropping south of Horseshoe Cove.
Two men were spotted on a rock surrounded by rough water, and they were hoisted to shore separately by Westrope and Flight Deputy Chris Lomanto, again using the 100-foot rescue line.
The Santa Rosa men, ages 19 and 20, had been fishing on the rock when the tide came in, cutting them off from the shore, Thompson said.

Maybe it was a favorite spot that he wanted to hunt one last time before it closed forever.  Given the conditions I saw online it had to be pretty darn rough in there in Sunday.  Beautiful spot to die though.  Condolences to the family.  RIP brother.

Maybe he got his wish...it was blowing 20 knots, with swell at 9' and it doesn't mention a dive buddy.

"There was never yet an uninteresting life. Such a thing is an impossibility. Inside of the dullest exterior there is a drama, a comedy and a tragedy."

He's at rest now...Peace be with him.

My prayers are with his family. I sure hope that when I'm 62 that I will still be diving! Not alone though! What a shame.
