Statement from the company:

Kelowna Flightcraft staff and management were stunned, shocked, and heartbroken to learn a valued employee, colleague, and friend was lost to an unspeakable act of violence on Thursday Oct. 30, 2014.

Caesar Rosales moved to Kelowna only two years ago to join Kelowna Flightcraft as a Business Systems Analyst part of our Information Services team. He brought tremendous skills and training from his previous work in both Vancouver and the Philippines. Over the last two years he became a part of the Flightcraft family, working with 100’s of our employees across the organization, participating in social club activities, contributing on several large projects, and developing a strong circle of friends and colleagues.

As a person, Caesar was intelligent, gentle, caring, and passionate. He took the opportunity to live life to the fullest skydiving, bungy jumping, zip lining, hiking, and walking the CN Tower all in the last few years. He loved to film and share his adventures, creating his own YouTube channel.

Caesar’s murder wounds us all, leaves a void where he once worked, and played. He leaves behind co-workers, friends and family (son in Greater Vancouver and a brother in the Philippines) and will be sorely missed. Our condolences go out to his family. Funeral arrangements are still pending.

Rest in Peace Caesar.
