Boating Accident Claims the Life of a Palatka Boy

A boating accident has claimed the life of a 9-year-old Palatka boy. Tate Ricks was doing what he loved best fishing with a family friend on a boat when the wake from a larger boat knocked him overboard. The 36 hour search ended on Monday when divers found his body close to where he first disappeared. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission are conducting an investigation into the incident. Thursday evening young friends and family supported by a grieving community mourned Tate's loss. May we remember Tate's family and friends as they say farewell to a young man that loved boating, fishing and swimming.
