Bodies of two missing canoeists are found near Curtain Falls

The bodies of two missing canoeists were found near Curtain Falls in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area recently.

Rescue crews first recovered the body of Jesse Haugen, 41, last Friday. Then on Tuesday, 40-year-old Reese Grams of Lino Lakes was pulled from the same area he was last seen on May 19. The location of both missing men was just west of Curtain Falls off of a 30-foot drop into Iron Lake.

Haugen, 41, is the son-in-law of Doug and Lorraine Lohse of Windom. He is survived by his wife, Bethany Haugen, and their son, Isaac.

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. today at Eagle Brook Church in Ham Lake. A visitation will follow the service and continue until 5 PM at the church.
