Zane Timpson, a skateboarder, has reportedly died at the age of 26.
On Sunday (November 14th), his terrible death was published in an obituary in the skating newspaper Thrasher.
Who Is Zane Timpson?
Zane Timpson was an aspiring skateboarder. He was born and reared in the California town of Leucadia. Timpson relocated to San Francisco in 2013 and lived there for nearly seven years before relocating to Encinitas.
He was a member of the Bones Wheels Team, along with other amateur and professional skaters, including Tony Hawk.
His excellent skateboarding abilities earned him over 40,000 Instagram followers. Sufferlove, Timpson's debut book, was described as “part-zine, part-diary, part-scrapbook, part-portfolio, part-poetry chapbook.”
How Did Zane Timpson Die?
His cause of death has yet to be revealed, and Zane's family members have remained silent about the tragedy.
Jordan Maxham, another skateboarder, paid tribute to his friend on Instagram, writing, “I cried all day yesterday.” I clutched your signed pro model board for me. I took it skating and went front the entire time. I called you after reading our texts. You did not respond.
“I left you a voice mail message that no one will hear.” They won't understand since I couldn't talk through the flow of tears. I woke up crying again today because I still can't believe you're gone.
The big one. You've always been generous and loving. I am proud of the guy you have become. I consider myself fortunate to have had the opportunity to spend so much time with you. I will scream your name for the rest of my life. “I adore you, Zane.”
Zane described his “suffering” in an Instagram post just weeks before his death. He read a selection of poems from his collection Sufferlove.
