Owner Of Docks Cannabis In Bobcaygeon Killed In Crash On Highway 36

KAWARTHA LAKES-Everyone who knew Abe Navarro describes him as “kind and loving”.

“Abe was loyal to a fault, a kind and incredibly loving friend. Gentle but courageous, he recently ventured in entrepreneurship along with family and friends and was building a highly successful local business. Besides that, family was always first for Abe, especially when caring and raising his dear children, Logan, Ava, Eden and Landon.” said Patrick Ruiz, Abe’s best friend who set up the Go Fund Me campaign to help his four children.

Friends say he was killed in a crash on Highway 36 on December 2nd, 2021 just after 3pm. Police were called to the area of Cty Rd 36 and Snug Harbour Rd for a motor vehicle collision between a northbound car and a southbound dump truck.

Officers and other emergency responders arrived and determined that the driver of the car had succumbed to their injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Friends say Abe lived for his kids and recently told them ” I want to leave a legacy for them”.

“I kindly ask you to consider contributing and sharing this Go Fund Me page to help get some of this started for his children,” stated Ruiz.
