Paul Tsang, 49, was snorkeling in the waters off of the Mauna Lani Beach Club on the Kohala Coast at about 12:35 p.m. local time when someone on shore noticed he was floating motionless, according to Hawaii police.

A man used a paddleboard to check on Tsang and found him unresponsive. He was brought to shore and taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead about an hour later, police said.

Tsang worked as the head of Wells Fargo’s strategic auto investment group in San Francisco, company spokesman Ruben Pulido said.

“We want to send his family our deepest condolences,” Pulido said.

“He will be greatly missed.”
