Maclean's magazine devoted a back-page obituary this month to Nelson's Jim Kienholz, who was killed in a float plane crash at Nakusp on August 24.

The story by Michael Friscolanti describes him as "meticulous, unmaterialistic, and frugal," and says he was waiting until he turned 65 to get a seniors rate on his fishing license.

Sadly, that fateful decision lead to his death. Kienholz and his pilot friend, en route to a day of fishing at a remote lake, were stopping to get his license when the crash happened.

Kienholz was best known as the longtime scorekeeper of the Nelson Leafs.

The story quotes his sister Lorraine, mother Malendar, friends Dan Skopac and Roger Bond, and Leafs trasurer Gord Davis.
