On October 12th, 2016, surrounded by family and friends, Dylan Joseph Rieder passed away due to complications with Leukemia.
Born to ride a skateboard? It's a seemingly silly concept when you think about it, but Dylan Rieder made us believe it. This man was absolutely, positively a gift: power, style, grace - he had it all. That said, he was much more a skateboarder and that's what makes this infinitely more tragic. Think about what he had already accomplished and imagine how much more he could have done.
