Friends, rescuers found Steamboat canoeist Stothart on Saturday
By all accounts, Brian "Tigger" Stothart was an elite boater, a funny guy and a thoughtful friend. But his real passion, friends said, was his wife, Valerie, and their children, Samuel and Sophia. Stothart disappeared June 13 while running the Encampment River in southern Wyoming with four others. His body was found Saturday.
