Friends of the men who were killed Saturday night while boating on Osoyoos Lake have begun identifying the duo as long-time friends.
Nick Trask, 36, was from Maple Ridge and Ryan Ellison, 35, was living in Kamloops in recent years, but was also originally from Maple Ridge, according to his Facebook profile.
Numerous friends of the two have begun replacing their social media profile pictures with a photo of the two on a lake.

Ellison’s brother, Clayton Ellison, died in 2013 while off-roading in Hope.
RCMP continue to investigate the collision between the boat carrying the two men and an aluminum boat carrying three other men, who were seriously injured.
