If there’s small solace to be had in this tragedy, it’s that Matt Klee died doing something he loved.

The 40-year-old Hood River resident and Insitu employee died tragically on Friday, May 30, while mountain biking at Whistler Bike Park in British Columbia. Klee was an active community member and outdoor enthusiast who dedicated much of his free time enriching the local mountain biking culture as the president of the popular biking advocacy group, HRATS (Hood River Area Trail Stewards).

Klee had an enthusiastic and contagious zest for life that he shared generously with his friends, family and the community he loved. Although he will be missed by all who knew him, his passing is especially devastating for his wife, Jen, mother, Pat, father, Joe, and sister, Amy.

A time to honor and celebrate Matt’s life is planned for 5 p.m. Saturday, June 7, at Best Western Hood River Inn’s Gorge Room (1108 E Marina Way).

Friends are also invited to share a note or story with his family at andersonstributecenter.com.

Reports from Whistler Bike Park note that Klee, an experienced rider who frequented the park, was wearing proper safety gear, including a full faced helmet and a neck brace, when he crashed at the bottom of a rock feature on the park’s advanced Lower Whistler Downhill run. Klee was riding with friends, one an emergency room doctor, who immediately began CPR while park patrol was called. Klee passed away before medical staff was able to stabilize him for helicopter transport to hospital.

This was only the second fatality in the park’s 15 years of operation.
