On Wednesday, May 29th Aaron (AJ) Kingma was fishing with some friends in Hudson's Hope, BC along the Peace River. He was unexpectedly swept away by the strong current of the Peace River. He tired to swim to safety but was taken under by the undertow and did not resurface. Aaron is still considered missing and despite the amazing efforts and countless hours of Search & Rescue along with local volunteers they have not been able to locate him.
Aaron was an amazing husband to Andrea and adored father to Maddison (9) and Elizabeth (1). Aaron was very close with his parents Bill and Katherine who still hold onto hope that he will be found. We continue to ask you for your positive thoughts and prayers that Aaron is found.
Please help Andrea and the girls during this difficult time by contributing to their go fund me page. Every little bit helps, please keep Aaron in your thoughts and prayers. Anyone along the Peace River, please keep an eye out and if you see anything please call your local RCMP office.
Leo Patterson - Andrea’s mother and the rest of the family are helping the girls in any way they can.
