A tax-deductible college fund has been set up for Cannon Zuiches, the son of the late Joe Zuiches, a 42 year-old local resident who died last week while performing avalanche control at Squaw Valley ski resort, where he worked as a ski patroller.
Joseph Kurilo Zuiches is immediately survived by his wife, Mikki Zuiches, and their 10-month-old son, Cannon.
