Larry Dupree Found Dead – Death: Father of 4, Larry Dupree who was at the beach celebrating his anniversary with his wife got killed while trying to rescue his children off the coast of Huguenot Park Sunday afternoon.
The scene was a beautiful day at Huguenot Park around 1:45 p.m. when Larry Dupree’s two children ages 4 and 9 were caught in rough waves. Mr. Dupree found himself in trouble as he attempted to rescue his two little ones.
The fast action of beachgoers forming a human chain was able to reach the children and rescue both children. Beachgoers were unable to reach the children’s father in time. A massive search was launched to search for the missing man including JFRD, Sheriff’s Office Marine units, Ocean Rescue, Florida Fish, and Wildlife and the Coast Guard.
The victim was found Monday morning and identified by a family member. Huguenot Park experienced strong rip tides over the weekend with red flags marking the beach as a warning. Jacksonville Beach lifeguards helped 10 swimmers get back to the shore on Sunday due to the strong currents.
Larry Dupree was a valued employee at UPS. Our thoughts are with Mr. Dupree’s family, friends, and co-workers. We applaud the beachgoers who reacted quickly and saved the children. It is heartwarming in this day of so much turmoil around us to see caring heroes that put their own safety at risk to rescue these children.
