A beloved former "Amazing Race Canada" contestant was found dead on a mountain in British Columbia on Tuesday.
Kenneth McAlpine suffered a "substantial fall" while hiking alone on his 28th birthday on Mount Gimli in the province's Kootenay region, his family said. Rescue teams launched a search for McAlpine after he failed to return home on time.
McAlpine's father, Malcolm McAlpine, told Canada's Global News his son lived life to the fullest.
"He packed a lot in, that’s for sure," he said. "He embraced life, he was brave, and he was a pretty cool guy. Someone told me, ‘He was the kind of guy you’d want your daughter to marry.' Everyone loved him. He made his mark.”
