Remembering Ryan...

Remembering Ryan...When news broke that a man died from a fall off the Olomana trail yesterday, folks in the know on Twitter starting voicing their concern as there was an unofficial #twike (Hiking Tweetup) taking place there at that very time. It was soon discovered that the hiker in question was what everyone feared... One of our own. Out of respect for his family, most were hush hush about naming him in the stream. Cryptic even. I got a few DMs to confirm the tragedy, but nothing in the public timeline.

I won't even pretend like I knew him personally because I didn't (we just tweeted each other online from time to time), but from what is now coming from the Twitterverse after his passing, I really wish I did. I regret not being able to make any of the #Tweeball events that he coordinated due to scheduling conflicts, but I'm sure they will continue in his honor, and I will be there.

Here's a list of remembrance blogs from those who knew him well. R.I.P. Ryan Suenaga...

And finally, here's a Ryan Suenaga Tribute Page and the Twtvite to a Tribute to @rsuenaga.

    Condolences to his family and friends. Hope they can find comfort from this tragedy.

    From what I read on twitter and blogs, I sensed that Ryan was a cool dude. Geek through and through and one that is willing to give the short off his back to help another.

    All I can hope is that his memory lives on.


  2. Chicken Grease:

    sincere condolences to his family and friends.

    i'd heard his name many times but never met him in person. it's evident that he was a good soul who affected many, many lives. it's too bad he had to go so soon.
