Kevin Paul did not return from an ATV trip near Grace Lake

The BC Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of an Aldergrove man who died in an ATV accident near Harrison Mills on Aug. 30.

Kevin Robert Paul, aged 45, died when his ATV flipped into a creek.

Loved by many, the outdoorsman who worked at Jacob Bros. Construction in Surrey leaves behind his wife Patti Limusse and their two children, ages 11 and 17.

Paul was reported missing to the Agassiz RCMP on Sept. 1 by his wife, when he had failed to return home as planned, following a short solo camping trip to the area of Harrison and Chehalis Lakes, north of Harrison Mills.

The area Paul was in, near Grace Lake, is a popular spot for people to use their ATVs.

A search was initiated, and on the morning of Sept. 3, his body and his overturned ATV quad were located in the water at the north end of Chehalis Lake, near the mouth of a creek.

“This is a really tragic accident,” said Agassiz RCMP spokesperson Const. Ashley St. Germaine.
