In Memory

A couple of months ago, we said goodbye to a great man. On June 7, 2018, Louis “Kayo” Erwin Sr. passed away from this world into the next. He was a friend to all who knew him, a loving father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. He was also one of the last remaining U.S.S. Indianapolis Survivors.
Mr. Erwin lived most of his life in East Ridge, Tennessee. This month, the city of East Ridge named a portion of Ringgold Road after him to honor his memory.
Mr. Erwin’s Daughter, Sandy points at the road sign that reads ‘Louis “Kayo” Erwin Highway’

Now, every time we drive down this stretch of road, we will think of Mr. Erwin and his friendly, gentle nature, his smile, and his brave service for our country. We will never forget him.

Sail on, Sailor

Today, we lost a true hero and one of the kindest, most loving people.
This morning, Louis “Kayo” Erwin Sr. passed away peacefully at home with his son, Kayo Erwin Jr. and daughter Sandy Erwin. He was 93-years-old.

 

He was known to many around Erwin Marine Sales and Chickamauga Marina and was always quick with a smile and a kind word.
Mr. Erwin survived one of the most tragic events in American Naval history with bravery and courage. He loved telling his story and sharing first-hand with those who wanted to learn more about his survival of the historic event. But if there was one thing he could pass along to others, it was the importance of grasping the moment with happiness and a smile. He will truly be missed by all who knew him.
The family will be accepting friends for visitation at the Chattanooga Funeral Home North Chapel, 5401 Highway 153, Hixson, TN on Monday, June 11, from 2-8 p.m. and on Tuesday, June 12,  from 2-4 p.m.
Funeral services will be held at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, June 12that Chattanooga Funeral Home North Chapel.
Interment will follow at Hamilton Memorial Gardens.

“Sail on Sailor into your unaccompanied tour,
we salute you.
What greater honor, when a man moves forward,
he leaves behind in each of us
the best of what he was.
Those of us who remain behind
will continue to remember,
because he now resides forever in our hearts.”*

*Passages from “The Old Salt” poem by Mac McGovern

 

Louis Kayo Erwin Obituary

Chattanooga’s FIRST-EVER Surf Competition

On Saturday, June 2, 2018, Erwin Marine was excited to host the FIRST Surf Competition in Chattanooga!

Sponsored by HeyDay and Phase 5, the competition was a huge success with competitors from all over Chattanooga and surrounding areas.

The event was held on a beautiful, busy Saturday on Chickamauga Lake. We started with a kids’ competition. They had a blast and wow, these kids can shred it! We have amazing talent here in Chattanooga!
First place of the Youth Division went to this awesome surfer girl, Kate Rogers. Here she is with her brand new Phase 5 surfboard! Congratulations, Kate!
The HeyDay WT-Surf was busy all day with beginner and intermediate surfers. Some of them made it look so easy and effortless. Even the wipe-outs looked like fun!
Did we mention this is the FIRST surf competition in Chattanooga?
Our driver, Ben Dorton of HeyDay, did a killer job through the heat of the day and the sometimes crazy traffic in the lake. And we couldn’t have asked for a better team of judges than Keisha Bentley of HeyDay and Drew Danielo of Phase 5. They had a really tough job. In fact, they really had to put their heads together to chose the winners.
In the “Beginners” Division, First Place went to Robert Kirby.
The First Place Winner of the “Intermediate” Division was Kevin Cook.
At the end of the day, win or lose, new friends were made, everyone had big smiles on their faces, and had a little fun on the water. All-in-all, the day was a big success!
If you missed the competition this year, don’t worry. We are already working on next year’s event! If you want to be sure not to miss out on it, keep up to date by filling out the form here.
We would like to offer a huge “Thank You” to all who made this event happen, especially Keisha Bentley and Benjamin Dorton of HeyDay, Drew Danielo of Phase 5, Michael Porter and Bryan Summers of Erwin Marine. And thank you to all of the competitors and spectators for showing up and being patient with us for our first run of this surf competition. We had fun and we hope you did too. Next year will be even better and we welcome your suggestions to make it so. Thank you!
