Jim LaPorte passed on February 12th, 2020 after an 18 month battle with pancreatic cancer. To Jim, his family and friends came first but he was also so very passionate about KATVA. He was a tireless and dedicated volunteer who did everything that was ever asked of him and more. There was no part of the KATVA operations that Jim was not involved in somehow. He was an avid ATV Safety trainer and the kids who worked with him adored him almost as much as he enjoyed them. He could be seen on the trails putting up signs or using a shovel and in the KATVA booth at every show greeting members and promoting the trails to the general public. He was a wealth of knowledge and experience and such a valuable part of the KATVA family. Due to the good nature of always wanting to help others we thought what better way to honour Jim then to hope that those who love the sport the way he did could help raise awareness and funds to help others going through the same battle with pancreatic cancer that he did. With ongoing research funded by donations, the goal is to find a way to be able to diagnose pancreatic cancer sooner or find a treatment to help with better odds then is available today.
