Facing the loss of husband and father, family members Melanie, Madeline and Kenyon willingly stepped forward to tell their story of “Being Left Behind.” The family permitted unprecedented access to the Little Rock District Water Safety Team to “share” a personal message. Posing for a family portrait, the photo was used on water safety billboards across central Arkansas. The accompanying slogan “It’s not just your life to LOSE” emphasized families also lose when a life jacket is not worn. Ken Brindley’s sacrifice, losing his life to save another, serves as an inspiration to change public attitudes toward life jacket wear when on or near the water. The family’s contributions to water safety education serve as a testament to Ken, Melanie, Madeline and Kenyon Brindley, and reflect great credit and praise for the Brindley Family. 
Ken Brindley sacrificed his life attempting to rescue a drowning man in Destin, Florida.

At the foot of Round Mountain in the beautiful Ozark Mountains of north-central Arkansas stands Greers Ferry Dam. Behind that structure dedicated in 1963 by the late President John F. Kennedy, glistens one of the foremost recreational areas in the middle United States, Greers Ferry Lake. With over 30,000 acres of water surface, the lake serves as a playground for all kinds of water sports. Eighteen parks around the shoreline provide modern campgrounds, boat launches, swim areas and marinas.
