A GoFundMe campaign has been launched to help the family of a well-known commercial operator who died saving his family from a floatplane crash in an Ontario Lake. Jeff Mavor, owner of Lake Country Airways in Orillia was flying his wife Kathy, five of their six kids and their dog to their cabin. The plane flipped on landing. Mavor saved all of his family members and went back for the dog but they both died in the process.
The other occupants survived with minor injuries and the GoFundMe has been established to help them transition to life without their husband and father. “Jeff leaves behind his beautiful wife Kathy and his six wonderful children who will dearly miss him and never forget their hero they will remember as Dad.
