Restored waterfowl lake site in west central Minnesota to remember Adam Hoekstra


RAYMOND -- Friends and family of Adam Hoekstra answered his untimely death in the best way they knew how.

They made a lasting gift in the Spicer native's memory for all time.

After his death at age 24 in 2009, they launched a fund drive that raised $170,000 for Ducks Unlimited restoration work. There were many who gave $20,000 or more in his memory.
