John was pinned and drowned on July 5th 1998 on the first descent of the Rio Huallabamba in Central Peru.

John was an adventurer, an amazing kayaker and most importantly a great friend. John was founder of Adventuras Andes and his guidebook “Chile Whitewater” was not quite completed before his passing.
