A 69-year-old Gobles man died today while canoeing the Kalamazoo River. David and Marilyn Barber were canoeing the Kalamazoo River today, when the canoe tipped, sending them both into the water. Marilyn called 911, and the Fennville Fire Department was summoned.

The site was remote enough that GPS location had to be used to find the canoeists. Marilyn Barber had been able to pull her husband to shore, but he was not breathing. Barber is reported to have had an underlying medical condition, but it is not known at this time if that contributed to his death.

This is so sad. I sympathize with this wife's loss.
