SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - The family of a man who died while fishing at Willard Bay last year is establishing a new fishing dock in his name.

The Standard-Examiner in Ogden reports (https://bit.ly/1Rp5wXq) that 45-year-old Matthew Rasmussen’s daughter says raising money for the project at the bay north of Salt Lake City has helped her deal with her father’s death.

Mykala Rasmussen says she wants to create a peaceful reminder of her father in a place that he loved.

This week marks one year since Matthew Rasmussen was found dead. He’d been reported missing four days before, after he didn’t come back from a fishing trip on the Great Salt Lake.

Authorities found his empty boat and later located his body, though the exact circumstances of his death remain unclear.

The dock is expected to open mid-summer.
