March 26th, 2017 – Last night I learned a prominent member from the Parkour community has taken his own life. At Fight or Flight Academy, a memorial service was held in his honor.
I’ve only had a few conversations with him, but he came off as one of the most friendly people I’ve ever met. He was the kind of guy who would introduce himself to people he didn’t know then go out of his way to remember their names even if he only met them once.
Throughout most of today my fiancee and I went for a walk and talked about the fallen athlete It ended up leading to talking a lot about life, death, and relationships. It really made the both of us realize just how much more appreciative we need to be to those around us. There’s no telling how long those around you will be there.
Rest in Peace, Dan Larson-Fine.
