BFSC Kevin Wong Memorial Fund

On Thursday September 6, 2018, Kevin Wong was fishing in Lake Ontario in the area around the mouth of Duffins Creek in Ajax. Lake conditions were reported as very calm for boating. Kevin was healthy and a strong swimmer. His fishing plan and GPS showed he stayed within half mile of the shore and in water less than 40ft of water. Police were called to Rotary Park, where they found Kevin's boat beached on the shore. The boat was unmanned with the kicker trolling motor running, and fishing lines still in the water. It's believed Kevin fell into the lake.

Search and rescue efforts immediately began following the discovery. The authorities, family, and friends went above and beyond to look for Kevin. Volunteers walked the shorelines, searched the air with drones, and boated around the lake for several days in search of Kevin. On September 11, 2018 shortly before 10 a.m., a local dog walker spotted a body washed ashore near Petticoat Creek Conservation Area in Pickering. It has been confirmed by police that this body belongs to Kevin.

Kevin is described by those who knew him as a caring son, loving uncle, supportive brother, compassionate boyfriend, and a dedicated sport fisherman. His YouTube channel Big Fish Small Camera  (BFSC) showcased the thrill and excitement of the various fishing opportunities around Ontario. His experience on the water and engaging content inspired many new and experienced fishermen. Some of his most popular videos have reached over 200,000 views.

Words cannot express the complete devastation Kevin’s loss has to his family, relatives and friends. Many who had interactions with Kevin agree that he is a genuine friend that everyone loves. He will be deeply missed and we will remember him forever. Please help us to support the family as they struggle to find ways to go through this tragedy. All donations will go directly to the family to help cover the costs of the memorial and other related expenses. Any extra funds will go towards future memorial events we plan to host. Your prayers, messages, and ongoing support are deeply appreciated. Kinman Wong, Kevin's brother, is the family member responsible for withdrawals of donation and manage the funds.
