MASON CITY , Iowa – A local man, who drowned last weekend near Ventura, is being remembered by friends through art. A mural of a blue heron was painted by a friend of David Caspers, Henry Ruiz, to honor his memory at the Mason City Skate Park. He died over the Memorial Day weekend. Caspers’ body was found in Clear Lake. His closest friends want him to be remembered for who he was and they’re hoping the artwork can help.
“David, David is always excited about stuff like that. Whoa, that’s really cool. He was always so positive,” said Henry Ruiz.
Meanwhile, authorities are still waiting on the medical examiner’s report on exactly what led to Caspers’ death. He was 26 years old.
