Greg Rosen Death – As a result of reports from the Ontario Provincial Police confirming that a marine collision on the St. Lawrence River on Saturday morning west of Brockville, Ontario, resulted in the death of one person, word quickly spread from Canada to the United States and around the world that one of the most charitable performance boaters in the world, Canadian Gregg Rosen, was reportedly the person who passed away.
According to witnesses on the site, a woman who was apparently on board Rosen’s 39-foot MTI catamaran and received major injuries was not mentioned in a statement that the provincial police had released at the time of printing addressing further casualties or passengers.
Rosen, who was well known in the performance boat community thanks to the Aqua-Mania G3 Racing team he co-owned with Rick Merola of the New York-based full-service marine dealership, was a fun-loving gentleman who attended many poker runs up and down his home waterway as well as around the country. Kimco Steel Sales, Ltd. is located in Kingston, Ontario, and Rosen owns it. He is also well known in the performance boat community.
It was reported by witnesses that there was another person on board the boat at the time of the collision. The OPP reports that the subject was taken to the hospital in a medical transport. At this moment, we do not have any information regarding their condition.
Boaters are being reminded by the OPP to check their safety equipment, including personal floatation devices, before heading out on the water, and to be alert of the circumstances in their immediate area. The inquiry into the incident is still ongoing. Anyone who may have witnessed the incident is encouraged to call the Leeds detachment of the OPP at 1-888-310-1122.
Greg Rosen Obituary and funeral plans will be released by the family at a later date…
