Armuchee man drowns near Flamingo Cove in Allatoona Lake on Sunday.

 

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.
