As a front range rafter, I never had the pleasure of meeting Count, but from reading his many posts on the Buzz, you knew he had a true passion for the sport. Always there with an encouraging word or sharing his knowledge and experiences. It's really sad to lose a young man who, from all the stories, was a really great guy with an infectious enthusiasm for kayaking and loved to be on the water.
My condolences to his family and friends. Count was one of the buzzards I would have liked to have spent some river time with. I know that he will be keeping watch over all of us.
Karma is like this: If we set causes in motion the effects come back to us.
