“The Obi family confirmed that the gear belonged to Mr. Timothy Obi. The location and condition of the gear are consistent with a suspected encounter with a marine predator.”
It’s not clear if Timothy passed away due to that predatory encounter, or if it happened for another reason and then the predator came along.

“Timmy Obi was a loving husband to Lizzy and father to Davis, Kyle, and Brooks,” a GoFundMe page created for his family reads.
“He had a passion for surfing, fishing, and diving. He was loved by so many and will be missed very much.”
“Funds raised will be used to support the family’s immediate needs and for a college fund for his three boys.”
