Memorial Boat Run Held On Lake Cumberland For Two Couples Killed In Boating Accident

Posted: Updated:

RUSSELL COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) - People were out on Lake Cumberland to take part in the first annual memorial boat run to honor two Kentucky couples that were killed in a boating accident in Georgia last year.

Arthur and Melissa McMahan were on a trip with Anthony and Tammy Reece at a lake in Georgia last July when their boat flipped , killing all four of them. 

Both couples were well known in the Lake Cumberland boating community.

Saturday dozens of people and about 50 boats took part in the fun run that not only honors the two couples' memory, but also celebrates the passion and love they had for boating.

“I've talked to multiple people this weekend and everybody agrees with me that we just wanted to be half of what Anthony, Tammy, Art, and Melissa all were. Just, how nice they were to people, how open they were to everybody, and how people they didn't even know were their best friend,” said event organizer Tanner Howard.

The fun included a raft up at the dam on Lake Cumberland, which is how the two couples met.
