On September 11, 2010, the Splash family lost a very special member. Reg Norton was an accomplished Master Scuba Diver Trainer but above all else, a great friend to so many. While everybody deals with loss in their own way, we encourage you to honor Reg’s memory by sharing stories, pictures, and memories of our fallen friend. Reg would want us to celebrate his life and not mourn his death.

One of his favorite things about diving was exploring “inner space”! He was a particularly big fan of the North Carolina wrecks and of Gilboa Quarry. You might say he was an equal opportunity diver! He had a way of always bringing out the best in his friends and students.

To honor his memory Splash Water Sports will be offering an award of a Rescue class to a deserving student in Reg’s honor. He always felt that one’s scuba training was not complete until they were at least a Rescue Diver.

God Speed Reg!
