Gabriel Rodriguez - RIP IN PEACE

“On August 9th, 2019 we lost a true legend. He not only inspired me when I first met him, he inspired the world with his amazing talent. Words can’t describe the loss—he was a true brother. The fact that we came from the same neighborhood, living only blocks away as kids and got to experience the skate life together was a true miracle and always a great source of conversation between us. In his last days we assured him of his impact and influence. He was at peace with that and his soon-to-be passing. He now rests in peace. See you on the other side, my man. I love you, Gabe. I will miss you dearly and never forget you, brother.” –Rudy Johnson
