Bill Elliott

Broward County Airboat and Halftrack Club members are deeply saddened by the passing of Bill Elliot. He was a fine young man who was taken from us while training at the Pompano Beach Fire Dept. where he worked. We will always remember him with his dog Dinghy in the front seat of his airboat, ear muffs on, riding in Area 2A. He was a member of Never Rest Camp and good friend of Rick Nystrand.

The thing that set Billy apart from most was his willingness to help anyone in need. I can not stress to you enough how generous and caring he was. Always a smile and a deep desire to spend as much time in the woods as he could. We have lost several of our good friends lately, but that does not soften the blow to our club with his passing. Last Sunday our Club had a work day at the Boars Nest Camp, he would have been there. As I looked towards Never Rest Camp I felt like he was there with us, I will always feel like he is there. Bill has his parents and brother and sister who survive him; though their loss is the greatest, let us remember them also in our prayers.  To our dear friend and brother, Rest in Peace.

Capt. Tim Bravo Herburger

Birth: Aug. 2, 1955 Tacoma, Pierce County, Washington, USA

Death: Mar. 16, 2011 Fort Lauderdale. Broward County Fl, USA

Owner of We Deliver Yacht Service •• Sympathy & Condolences to his family & friends

The Tim ‘Bravo’ Herburger Memorial Clean Up started shortly after 7:00 a.m from the boat ramp at Alabama Jack’s on Card Sound Road in Key Largo FL.  Keith Price, of the Airboat Association of Florida, also brought a crew from his club; Tim was also a member of their club.  After a brief instruction on the event from the Miami-Dade Coastal Resources Supervisor, John Ricisak, to the approximately 40 volunteers, all boats were given a reporting sheet and a permit to remove the traps for the day.

Then the HUNT was on!  Some went to the south of the boat ramp and others went to the north.  It was a completely different scenario then two years ago as we rounded the corner out of the canal to the areas we would be looking for traps.  There was a lack of buoys floating around.  We really had to look for them submerged in the water.  We all met back at the boat ramp around noon.   Hamburgers and Hotdogs with water and chips were provided by the club to the volunteers.  The count was 207 traps that were brought in.   The Broward club presented Tim’s children with plaques so they would take home a memento from the event.  Rest in Peace, Tim.
