Still reeling from four young deaths in a period of eight months, the tiny village of Nemaska lost a respected talleyman to a boating accident on May 25. Andrew Moar, 61, suffered a heart attack while paddling to shore after experiencing motor trouble. Moar was traveling with his wife Winnie who tried to save him.
After a 13 day search, divers recovered the remains June 7.
He will be missed and remembered by young and old alike. The Moar family was featured in a short documentary broadcast on APTN. It showed him netting sturgeon, studying and enjoying it and talking about the river he called home.
