He was out on his boat for a ride this afternoon and drove up to Harmon Creek. He stopped to talk to the folks that were on the only houseboat there for a few minutes. While they were talking, he fell over in his boat with a heart attack.

The people on the rental houseboat called for help and performed CPR for 45 minutes until help arrived. He was moved to the F&W boat and attended to by Russell County EMS and taken to Ramseys Point where Wayne County EMS was waiting to take over. They tried and tried to revive him with no luck.

He was pronounced dead by Wayne County EMS around 5pm or so. He was 41.
Yeah

I am one of the houseboat rental pesons that John Carl and Lindsay stopped by and spoke with us that Friday afternoon. In the all too brief time we were able to speak with them both, we all felt like John Carl was one of us and that day a stranger became a friend. John Carl and our group had the love for boating in common which was discussed to some extent along with his love of baseball. When John Carl went down, my friends tried so very hard to bring him back, because none of us wanted to see him go, we all prayed fanatically and were wishing he would resusitate at any moment. We could tell John Carl was fighting and trying to hold on and if he wasn't giving up, neither were we. We never gave up, we so wanted John Carl to come back to us. It took us all for a very tramatic emotional spin and to have such a connection with someone in such a short time span speaks a lot about the persona of John Carl as an individual. We were also glad that we could be there for Lindsay in trying to support her and help her cope with everything going on around her. Lindsay is a very strong willed individual also and was able to keep it together to speak with some of her family members and explain to them everything going on around her. We all offer our deepest sympathy and empathy to John Carl's family and friends. How fortunate it is for all of you who knew him well as we all thought very highly of him too from just the short time we were able to speak with him and hear his stories. God bless you all.

If this is really someone who was on the boat with JC and Lyndsey. Please send an email to the following address. The family would like to thank you in a not so public manor. tandg02@yahoo.com
