Sad news from Allatoona Lake this Labor Day weekend.
Mark McKinnon of the state Department of Natural Resources reports that:
“Just after 4 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 6, DNR game wardens, along with Bartow County Fire/Rescue, responded to a possible drowning in Flamingo Cove on Allatoona Lake. An adult male had been swimming in the cove when he went under and did not resurface. His body was recovered at 5:11 p.m. The victim was identified as David Kevin Gurley, 34, of Armuchee.”
We will post funeral/memorial arrangements when they are released. For now, friends are flooding the Facebook pages with tributes, remembrances and condolences.
