CKC mourns the loss of Liam Fisher

Posted By: CKC

Canoe Kayak Canada (CKC) mourns the tragic loss of Liam Fisher. Liam was an exceptional athlete and son of Olympic gold medalist Hugh Fisher. Hailing from Pemberton, BC, Liam was an accomplished kayaker, philanthropist, and academic who pursued all his adventures with passion and determination. Liam had been studying medicine at St. George’s University in Grenada.


“A great athlete, adventurer, scholar and coach has fallen,” said Liam’s father, Hugh Fisher. “A friend to many in our world of canoes and kayaks and paddlers.”


Liam passed away in Grenada on September 13 at the young age of 34 years old.


On behalf of the CKC staff and board of directors, we express our deepest sympathies to Liam’s family and friends.
