A 30-year-old White Rock man has been identified as the victim of a plane crash near Kelowna on Monday.
Jayson Dallas Wesley Smith - who went by the name Dallas Smith - was aboard a PA 30 Piper Twin Comanche en route to Boundary Bay Airport in Delta when the plane from Penticton went off course and ended up in a wooded area near Brenda Mines.
He was pronounced dead on scene.
Smith - not to be confused with the country musician from Langley of the same name - attended Semiahmoo Secondary school and recently moved to Vancouver.
During a memorial Tuesday night in White Rock, he was remembered by friends and family as an adventurous type with a tremendous will to live.
