A local historian who worked locally as a Lake Geneva Cruise Line captain and Black Point tour guide was killed in a hit-and-run accident in Lake Worth Beach, Florida on Friday, March 11.

“Sad news from Black Point today. Longtime tour guide, Jim Beloian was killed by a hit-and-run motorist while biking in Florida on March 11,” Black Point Estate and Garden announced on his Facebook page on Monday, March 14. Beloian was 74 years old.

“Jim was an amazing storyteller and a good friend to Black Point and was part of the original opening team. If you knew Jim you know he loved life, adventure and most importantly cycling.

Beloian has cycled around the Big Five Lakes, the entire length of the Mississippi River and recently retraced the D-Day invasion route from Omaha Beach to the Rhine, the post said. He was planning a bike trip this summer from the lowest point in Wisconsin to the highest.

He was also a boat captain for the Lake Geneva Cruise Line.
