|Over the years many Dive Team members have come and gone.
This page is some of who we are, and who we've been.
|This is when it all started for me. April 9th at Gilboa Quarry was freezing. Our instructor didn't seem to mind in his
Viking dry suit. The frozen few are; Jeff Paterson, Cara Rudd, Dan Rudd, Herbert F*&%@ing Lost
(there's a story about his driving abilities), Don't remember this guys name, Lt Larry Brenner,
who was the team leader during this time, Ray the instructor, and Ben Oram.
|Ben Oram. Ben has retired from the team as of 2003, but was one of our first Ice Divers.
We also had a specific hand signal for Ben underwater, it
was a hand motion similar to slicking your hair back......Pun intended.
Brad has since
retired as our
photographer extraordinair. Says
he may come back if his life ever
| Gary Lindsay.
Gary's now retired
from the team, and
his joyous smiles like
this will keep us warm and fuzzy
in our dark, cold, dreary dives.
| Chris Hunt. Commonly
refered to as Eeorr. This
is about as excited as
you'll ever see him.
|Jeff Paterson. Jeff
started in 95 when I did,
and has survived all
these winters by eating chili that
should have been Scott's.
| Scott Wolfe, Scott
comes to us with a Navy
Seal background. You'd
think with experience like
that he could find cooler things
than a rubber snowman.
| Shawn Dalton, retired from
the team to move to Az.
Must be he's getting old and
thin skinned. I bet we'd all go
to warm water if we could.
|Jeff Staup, Jeff is one of our
and was recently
immortalized on the
cover of Dive Rescue's,
Underwater Crime Scene Tech II
text book. He's no Anna
Kournakova, but he's the closest
thing we have to a celebrity.
|Brett White, recently retired from
the team. Brett is staying
on as Sta 89's submarine
Captain. Note to self:
Pay attn to weight limits on Addison's
dive boat when Brett is driving :(
| Ryan Whitney, AKA Whitey.
(remember Leave it to Beaver). Ryan came on board with Matt
a couple years ago. Ryan has since retired from the team. I
think it was too bad, but Geoff was happy to buy his Twin Jets as he left.
Jerry Swope came
to us from
Addison FD. Jerry
made so many
he was on the
team, we just stole
him away from
|Bill Kerns came on the same
time as Jerry. We keep Bill
around for his technical
abilities, like filling tanks, and
towing cars from lakes.
