Remembrance for a great friend


Recommended Posts

We are having a boat procession for Joe Toomey tomorrow at 4:15 PM from in front of the port of Rochester to Rosie's Marsh just west of Braddock's bay. Joe was a great captain and friend to many on the big pond, surely to be missed by many. Seeing how their are no funerals this is the BEST thing he would love. The Sheriff's will be escorting us out. Everyone who like to attend is welcome. We ask those to take their own boat and not jump onto another boat. The more boats the better for Joe. It would be awesome to have 20 plus boats in a line heading out of the river and going west. I apologize for the late notice, this all came about recently. Hope to see you there, thanks.

Today the Rochester Fleet said goodbye to Captain Joe Toomey. It was a sight to see 20 rigs rolling out of the Genny under Sheriff's office escort. I want to thank everyone who came out and thank you to the Monroe County Sheriff's office. The day was perfect and I think we got Joe's Attention...Thanks for the pics Jeremy Goodison! ......

I can't believe i did not mention that AWESOME perfect timing of the that blackhawk. We were a 100 yds off the shore line and this chopper was between us and the shore like 70ft off the water!!! Totally perfect timing, we could not have planned that any better. I still think somebody pulled some strings????? I have never seen any of these fighter choppers this close to the water in all my years. I am glad somebody got a pic.:yes: Yes Vinny you are correct, he is up there looking down what the f..k did they do now.
