Summer House star Carl Radke took time to honor his good friend Below Deck star Captain Lee Rosbach as the latter celebrated his birthday.

Captain Lee and Carl became friends after the captain reached out to Carl when the latter lost his brother to a drug overdose.

As Below Deck fans are aware, Captain Lee knows that loss all too well following the death of his son Joshua who also died of an overdose in 2019.

Their bond remains stronger than ever, especially after they spent time together at BravoCon last month.

Captain Lee turned 73 years old on Tuesday, November 15, and the Summer House star was one of many who honored him.

Carl used social media to gush over the man who helped him in so many ways.
