The River Man...Never to be Forgotten

William Studebaker...a strong, courageous man whom I, among many others, will never forget. A man who always brought out the best in people and pushed them to new heights. A man who led by example and never stopped doing what he loved, influencing more people than he probably realized.

While he starts his next grand adventure, his spirit will continue to flow through the river and the hearts of those he left behind.

Gracious, what a man. I read the story and would concur that he probably went in the way that he wanted to go the most. I am very sorry for the loss of somebody so talented, and may his next adventure be grand.

It seems like all of Idaho is reeling from his death. It is a huge loss, and he will be missed.
