Surfer won’t see the beach again
He was a surfer; in his tribute movie, wide-open seascapes frame photos of him carrying a surfboard, playing soccer, hugging friends.
People loved him before and after. There were 33 family members at his memorial, and “more than 50” came to paint a mural in his honor. “His name is on that parking lot … his name is on that concrete,” his father said. “Anywhere we could put paint, his name is there.”
