    Default Guide Otto Kulm

    Apparently the other day he took a group of hunters to shore. He was not feeling good and returned to his boat. He was latter found in his sleeping bag, on board, dead. Apparently he succumbed to a heart issue.

    A fund is being set up at the Wells Fargo branch in Valdez for his wife and family. He had two young children.

    That is all I know guys. I am Texas so details are a little sketchy.

    David I heard they are having a wake at 430 Sunday at the civic center. I was told that he died from CO 2 cause by a generator that he had running in the engine compartment. Once I here the official report I will post it.
    His name was Otto Kulm.

    I have some friends down in Valdez who told me about his passing and the details. Tough way to go and he was a young man with a young family.

    A loss for the hunting family here in Alaska.
