Sledder dies, alcohol a factor
Family mourns the loss of son who died while taking his snowmobile for an early Saturday morning ride. Searchers found the young man's body on Sunday afternoon.
By Michael GENNINGS, Page 1
A 22-Year-Old snowmobiler from Barrie was found dead by Friends on a trail near New Lowell Sunday afternoon.
Travis PELLETIER of 121 Grave Street, was found dead on the trail, near Sunnidale Sideroad 6/7, around 2 p.m.
The man's family said he had been missing since around 2 a.m. Saturday morning when he left to test his snow machine after making some adjustments.
Law enforcement officials said that the deceased missed a turn while going along the trail and struck a tree. The location was just 10 minutes from his parents' home, according to family members.
Mark KINNEY, a constable with the Huronia West Ontario Provincial Police, said that alcohol, excess speed and not wearing a helmet are "all considered to be factors" in the fatal crash.
KINNEY said that police were on the scene Sunday for almost four hours, trying to piece together what transpired. The Clearview Fire Department was also on hand for about the first 45 minutes, but other than that Chief Dave CARRUTHERS wasn't able to say what role his people played because he hadn't received a full report.
Bruce COOK, PELLETIER's step-father, talked by telephone with The Stayner Sun on Monday afternoon.
"Travis lived on the edge a bit," he said. "But deep down he was a goodhearted person who loved his mom."
PELLETIER had been arrested and convicted in the past for mischief under $5,000. He also was convicted for drug offences. On both occasions he was sentenced to jail time.
"He had some issues but he was trying to find his niche in life again," COOK said, adding he didn't want to discuss PELLETIER's troubled past. "Right now we are trying to celebrate his life."
PELLETIER was an aboriginal who belonged to the Serpent River First Nation in Cutler, Ontario, halfway between Sudbury and Sault Ste. Marie.
COOK said his stepson grew up in Orangeville and later New Lowell. He attended one year at Stayner Collegiate Institute but dropped out.
He said that PELLETIER, who he described as a handsome and slightly athletic man, enjoyed hockey as a youngster but that he abandoned the game in his early teens. Growing up he also liked to skateboard, COOK said.
He did not know if his stepson was working but he did note that PELLETIER was close with his girlfriend of seven years, Tamra LORBETSKIE.
He explained that PELLETIER came to visit his two siblings, Justin, 17, and Amanda, 15, on Friday night in New Lowell. He added that his stepson was drinking before venturing out on the three- or four-year-old snowmobile that he'd owned for only a few months. COOK said he wasn't sure if PELLETIER had much experience on snow machines.
COOK said that Justin and Amanda became alarmed around 10 a.m. Saturday morning when they realized that PELLETIER had not come back from the ride. Friends helped them search but it was not until Sunday that they discovered the man's body, approximately 10 feet off the trail, COOK said.
At one point during the search on Sunday morning COOK said his son Justin walked by the scene but did not see anything.
At the time PELLETIER went missing his stepfather and mother, Michelle, were visiting family on the reserve. COOK said they did not learn that PELLETIER was missing until getting home around noon on Sunday.
COOK said he learned the worst when two family Friends, Ryan McSWEEN and Paul FLANNERY, came up the driveway of their 21 Fawn Cres., home to say they found PELLETIER's body.
Throughout the ordeal COOK said his wife and children have been surrounded by family and Friends, something that has helped a great deal.
PELLETIER's body was taken to Barrie's Royal Victoria Hospital on Sunday for a post-mortem, scheduled to take place Monday afternoon, police said. Details of the autopsy were not available.
The Serpent River Band is handling the funeral arrangements, COOK noted, adding that PELLETIER will be buried on the reserve. He said the man's body was to be picked up yesterday. There will be no public service.
Still, COOK said that in memory of his stepson donations can be made to Stayner Collegiate Institute, where Amanda and Justin attend school or the Barrie Native Friendship Centre.
PELLETIER leaves behind his mother, siblings Justin, 17, Amanda Tammy, 34 and Dean 32.
