60 y/o white male found dead with no indication of foul play vs. prior descriptors of just “deceased male” = some details.

Thanks to the kayakers, Cal Fire, and the HCSO that poor sole was finally found and recovered. I hope this will bring closure to his family and friends. May he RIP.

I am the kayaker that found your friend and with the help of our group took him about a third of mile back to shore at college cove. We took good care of him while he was with us and wondered if he had a community that he was close to and now we know. It appears he was a wonderful person, well liked, and loved. I am so glad we could return him to his community and at times feel that he found us instead of we him.

He was truly one of a kind and incredibly kind at the same time. The world lost a special man. Thank you for taking care of Reuven the way you did. Thank you

He was a very kind Jewish man, very loving to everyone. Always telling jokes, and stories and being involved in community events. Thank you for finding him and returning him to the community. All of his loved ones are gathering to celebrate his life today in Trinidad. 🙏 Blessings to you and your friends.
