Skateboarding lost a great one today. Our hearts & respects go out to the friends & family of Dylan Rieder.
Today we lost someone very special to us. Surrounded by family and friends, Dylan Joseph Rieder passed away due to complications with Leukemia. His passion for life, art, music, fashion and skateboarding has always been contagious. Dylan will be remembered by all as a loving son, brother and friend. In lieu of sending flowers, the family requests donations be made in Dylan’s memory to Dr. Stephen Forman. Please address checks to; City of Hope, in memo line: to Dr. Stephen Forman for Dylan Rieder. City of Hope Attention: Philanthropy 1500 E Duarte Rd. Duarte, CA 91010 We love you, Dylan.
Born to ride a skateboard? It’s a seemingly silly concept when you think about it, but Dylan Rieder made us believe it. That man was absolutely, positively a gift: power, style, grace—he had it all. That said, he was much more than a skateboarder and that’s what makes this infinitely tragic. Think about what he had already accomplished and imagine how much more he could have done. We are at a loss for words right now, but what we do know is that Dylan made everything around him better. Our thoughts are with his family and friends in this difficult time. Rest in peace, Dylan Rieder. We will all miss you, each day more than the next.
