Some of you may remember John Messinger he was a prolific poster on the KayakForum.
Sadly he passed away during a kayak race yesterday. Another friend of mine was in the race reported that "He capsized with a mile to go and was face down in the water when we got to him less than a minute later. Despite efforts of competitors, safety boat, EMT personnel, Life Star, etc. he was pronounced dead at Hartford Hospital. "
It's with a heavy heart that the family of John Messinger has asked me to write this post to inform everyone that yesterday while doing what John loved he suffered a fatal heart attack.
As soon as anymore information comes available I will post here for services and such.
Thank you for your understanding while Sue and Adam grieve for the loss of such a wonderful husband and father. — feeling heartbroken.
