This reef was commisioned as memorial and tribute to Tom Maher. Tom was an Environmental Specialist with the Department of Environmental Protection’s (later the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission's) State Artificial Reef Program for nine years (from 1992 to 2001). Tom was a member of the state’s artificial reef dive assessment team, managed state and federal contracts for artificial reef development and monitoring, provided technical assistance to stakeholders and helped develop policies and rules to improve artificial reef management in Florida. Tom was an active participant in the activities of both the Gulf and Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission’s Artificial Reef Sub-Committees. After his retirement from FWC Tom remained active in artificial reef management, construction, monitoring and research. Tom served as a board member of the Reef Ball Foundation, and was an active member of the Florida chapter of the American Fisheries Society. Tom presented papers at two international conferences on artificial reefs and artificial reef habitats (CARAH) that included the 6th CARAH in San Remo, Italy; and 8th CARAH in Biloxi, MS. Tom was a co-editor for the 2005 8th CARAH proceedings. Tom was a tireless advocate of responsible reef development and was always ready to share his experience and expertise with others. During the severe hurricane seasons of 2004 and 2005 Tom used his considerable administrative and organizational skills to support the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in contract management activities during hurricane recovery efforts. A big joy in Tom's life was being a great Dad to his two sons, Daniel and Douglas. He took great pride in both boys and always put them first in his life. They were diving on artificial reefs, fishing and getting exposure to the marine environment at an early age. Tom supported both the athletic and academic achievements of his sons, now both teenagers. Tom was energetic, creative and outspoken. He was a tenacious “force of nature” as one colleague described him. We have lost both a colleague and friend with Tom's passing.

He fell in love with Mexico Beach the summer before he was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. Thoughts of the beautiful Mexico Beach white sand and pier fishing with his family always were spoken of with a smile. He dreamed of one last boat trip with our dear friends the Mulligans and catching one of the beautiful Mexico Beach red snapper or a giant grouper. Thanks MBARA for building habitats that support not only fantastic businesses like the Mexico Beach Marina, but also fulfill the dreams and honor the memories of people like Marlin that loved his family, friends and God's awesome creation. 2 Florida Limestone Artificial Reefs--2 Grouper Reef-- and 1 Ecosystem.

Lewis Allen Brooks Reef BridgeSpan11Site 225 29 44.210 85 41.912 18.9 227 104  When my husband unexpectedly passed away at the young age of 60, my sons and I were devastated and heartbroken! However, we knew exactly what he wanted. Al was an avid fisherman all of his life. From growing up near the Chesapeake Bay to living in Florida and working for a charter company as a young man, fishing was in his blood. He fished in the King Fish Tournament sponsored by the Mexico Beach Artificial Reef Association for many years and always knew he wanted to be a part of the ocean. Mr. Bob Cox put me in contact with Reef Maker at Walter Marine in Orange Beach, Alabama and Al’s dream came true. I corresponded with Stewart Walter and Bob Cox via email and everything was ready and waiting for us when we arrived to build Al’s reef. They made this so easy for me and my family! Shane Thomas met us at Walter Marine and guided us through everything we needed to know in order to carry out my husband’s wishes. It was a very emotional time for us, but with so many of our family and friends there, and the support of this association, we made it through. We are very pleased with the way his reef turned out. Thank you, Mexico Beach Artificial Reef Association and Walter Marine, for making this occasion special for me, my children, and our family. Paige Brooks & family Reynolds, GA.

Chuck Guilford Reef Car Body 124 29 55.438 85 32.542 6 255 59  As a tribute to Chuck Guilford, friends made a generous donation to MBARA and dedicated this reef in Chuck's honor. Chuck is a proud military retiree. He is a fourth generation native of Mexico Beach and former mayor, who owns Charisma Charters which has been running fishing trips since 1972. Chuck was an early pioneer in reef building, putting down artificial reefs off Mexico Beach as early as 1972. Chuck, along with his brother, father and George Holland, used their own boats and rented a barge and crane to build the first Mexico Beach reef known as The Car Bodies. Over the years he has personally been involved in deploying numerous artificial reefs we now enjoy for fishing and diving. After the establishment of MBARA in 1997, Chuck became an avid supporter of the organization. Chuck has a love for the sea and fishing and enjoys sharing his knowledge of both. He will enjoy fishing his reef and hopes all of his friends and other anglers visiting the area will enjoy it also. To assist in placement of future reefs please contribute to MBARA. The reef was deployed 28 Sep 2010. Eight Florida Artificial Limestone Reefs by Reefmaker; pyramid shape--8' High with 10' base.

Kaiser Tug Car Body 116 29 53.877 85 31.018 5.5 236 49  The Kaiser Tug, originally known as the William J. Keyser tug, sank during a hurricane in August of 1848. It was an iron-hulled tug built in 1882 at Philadelphia. It was named after a prominent Pensacola timber exporter. She was 92.4 feet long, 19.5 beam and displaced 97 tons. Keyser had left Pensacola towing the dredge, Herndon, bound for Fort Jefferson in the Dry Tortugas. Hugging the coast, her captain, W.H. Allen, with a crew of 12, was caught unawares by the fast-approaching storm. As the seas mounted and the winds howled, Capt. Allen gave the order to cut loose the dredge. As the dredge drifted away the men began to fear for their lives as the eye of the storm passed over them. All afternoon and evening the coal-fired tug kept her bow into the waves and battled the storm. Inevitably, as water entered her coal chutes, the boiler fires were extinguished. With no power the pumps quit and the tug began to settle into the Gulf. At 1:30 in the morning she slipped beneath the waves, seven miles west of St. Joseph's Point and four miles from Crooked Island, in 45 feet of green Gulf water. The dredge washed ashore near present-day Beacon Hill and was later refloated. The Kaiser Tug is deteriorated from time and the affects of salt water corrosion. A small portion of the bow and stern remains with its boiler. Verfified by Bob & Carol Cox on 14 Jul 2010.

Sharyn Joy Kerns Memorial Reef Crooked Island Site 178 29 55.458 85 32.683 6.2 255 60   “Sharyn Joy Kerns” September 11, 1950 – November 17, 2015. The spelling of “Sharyn”. Her Father named her. He wanted to Share in the Joy. Joy simply loved. Joy loved her family, friends, making music with her flute or piccolo, her bees, gardening, selling her produce and honey at the local Farmers Market, travel, cross word puzzles, dogs, being near the sea, fishing, along with an insatiable curiosity for the world. And she loved me. Raised primarily in Irving, TX, and living near Lake Dallas, TX, Joy moved for work to the Atlanta, GA area in 1991. In 1995, on the Front Porch of the house they had built together, with friends and neighbors present, she married Terry Kerns. A few years later they were able to buy a Canal Front Townhouse together in Mexico Beach that would become a gathering place for those family and friends that she loved so much. Weeks filled with laughs, good food, drinks, storytelling and of course fishing. Most years also included a “Girls Trip” to Apalachicola via the Intracoastal Waterway. In their twenty-five or so years together, Joy and Terry were able to not only do all the things they loved but were ready to move it all to a bigger stage. Joy was planning to retire in early 2016 and together they would start that “retirement” with a trip to Peru, an Amazon River Trip and the Galapagos Islands. In October of 2015, Joy was diagnosed with cancer, and shortly after began her first chemotherapy treatments. Within days of starting the treatments, she became sick from the treatments and subsequently passed away on November 17. Joy is buried at the Georgia National Cemetery near Canton, GA. Joy was a member of the Roswell New Horizons Band in Roswell, GA and a member of the Georgia Farm Bureau. She never met a Posted or No Trespassing Sign that didn’t mean “except for Joy”. She always wanted to see what was on the other side. 3 Florida Limestone Artificial Reefs (1 with a plaque) and 1 Grouper Reef. Verified by MBARA diver Bob Cox on 10 May 2016.
