Bravo Captain Lee Rosbach

Carl Radke posted a touching message on Instagram on November 15, the date of “Below Deck” star Captain Lee Rosbach’s birthday.

BravoCon was the first time the “Summer House” star and Rosbach met in person, the “Below Deck” captain shared on “Watch What Happens Live,” and Radke shared a photo of the pair together at that event on his social media.

As Bravo fans might know, Radke previously shared that Rosbach reached out to him after his brother Curtis Radke died in 2020 following a battle with addiction. Rosbach has a “similar story,” Radke explained at the time, as the captain’s son Joshua had died the year before of an accidental drug overdose. On Rosbach’s birthday, Radke opened up about the moment the “Below Deck” star reached out to him.
