I cant believe this is true. Bill was a guide on the gauley back in the day. This is truly a sad day in Summit County
I have known this family for a long time. Their son Jeremy was best friends with Derk Slottow too.
I am in shock right now

My friends and I met Bill and ran the Upper Blue with him on Wednesday. Super nice guy and a solid boater. My condolences to his family and friends.

I also met Billy for the first time on Wednesday and got to paddle with him. Really cool, friendly guy and I looked forward to paddling with him in the future. My heart goes out to all who knew him.

Condolences to family and friends...When we ran into him on the river, he seemed very happy to be back in his kayak and was fun to boat with. We were all excited to meet him and get to boat with him the day before on the Blue. I'm sorry for the loss to his family and the boating community...RIP and peace to his loved ones.

Here is the obituary, with a picture of the deceased. Apparently there has been some confusion between the victim and another "Bill":
Obituary: William Robert Keen, Jr |
