This tragedy reminds me of another man that died of a heart attack on Quandry in either 2010, 11 or 12. I had finished hiking Cameron and heard about it later that week. If I had a choice to die, that would be one option. Praying for family.

It was 2011.

This breaks my heart to hear. Rest in peace.

My condolences to family and friends. So very sad.

Thank you, first responders.
