It is with great sadness to inform the BCSB membership of the untimley passing of a member of this board.
Ken Hoshowski aka "Auger" was tragicaly and violently taken from us in the early morning hours on Sunday March 21.
Details are sketchy at this time but what I do know so far is that he was a victim of a violent domestic assault in Lynden Washington. Apperently the estranged husband of a woman he had met online and gone down to see on Saturday afternoon burst into the home he was in with this woman and inflicted fatal stab wounds to Ken and seriously injuring his estranged wife. The attacker is still at large and possibly heading to Conneticut where he/they were from before the two moved to lynden.
Ken was my best friend since childhood and he and I owned some real estate together, as well as being ridding buddys for many years. He will be greatly missed by all his freinds and family. Funeral arrangements are still in the process but the funeral will most likely be in Salmon Arm where his family resides.
I will post more information as it comes into me. I will be in contact with a detective from the Skadgit county police dep.
