Sad news in the paddlesports world this week. Boyce Greer, a leading investor and part owner of Liquidlogic/Legacy Paddlesports was killed this past weekend while whitewater kayaking on the Payette River in Banks, Idaho.
Greer, 55, was head of vice-chairman of Pyramis Global Advisors, the institutional investment arm of Fidelity Investments and lived in
Legacy Paddlesports released the following statement, "While we knew Boyce principally as a committed and accomplished whitewater paddler, a great business partner and mentor, and a constant friend, we always knew that he was a husband and father first and foremost."
Reports are that he died from head injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. You can read all the details here.
My thoughts go out to his wife and three kids as well as the staff at Liquidlogic/Legacy Paddlesports.
