Captain Joe Williams and Game Warden Harry Raymond drowned after being swept overboard while anchoring their department boat.

They were attempting to secure the boat to protect it from an approaching hurricane when a large wave knocked both of them into the water. Their bodies were recovered two days later.

Captain Williams was survived by his wife.
