A Michigan man is dead after falling out of a boat on Lake Superior. Robert Louis and six other passengers fell from a wooden boat en route to scatter the ashes of Robert's deceased father.

According to reports the other passengers were rescued and treated for hypothermia. Robert's brother, John Louis was on the boat and told WLUC-TV that quote, 'his brother devoted his whole life to make sure dad was taken care of.' I like to think that father and son are on the water together now. My thoughts are with the family and friends of all involved.
