COAL HARBOUR—A Coal Harbour man killed in an ATV crash Oct. 10 was commemorated last Friday in a memorial service held at Quattishe Hall on the Quatsino Reserve.

Richard Cameron “Cam” Davis, 22, who grew up in Coal Harbour, was studying at the Nicola Valley Institute of Technology in Merritt.

Davis was the passenger on a four-wheel ATV which was travelling eastbound on the Surrey Sussex Lake Road south of Highway 97D near Logan Lake in the early afternoon hours of Oct. 10. The driver apparently lost control of the ATV, and it hit a signpost at the four-km mark and then rolled down an embankment. Davis was deceased at the scene, the BC Coroners Service reported.

Davis had been a member of the Port Hardy Twinning Society, and traveled with a local delegation to Numata, Japan in 2009.
