07 Dec Remembering Chris Weigl
OG alumni Chris Weigl was killed in a collision with a tractor-trailer while riding his bike on Thursday morning, Dec. 6 in Boston, Massachusetts.
We had the pleasure of having Chris on our Southeast Asia program in 2011 and as an OGer, he was a valued part of our family and community of backpacktivists. In my eyes, Chris was an extraordinary man. His curiousity, enthusiasm, smile, honesty and energy was admirable; any life lost is a tragedy but when it is a young life with incredible potential…it’s beyond tragic. Fortunately, he will be remembered by many, I am sure, in wonderful ways and that is something that not even death can take away from Chris.
Our deepest condolences goes out to the Weigl family.
