Never sure what to say when someone you love passes away. Not sure what to do or how to act. The weight of sadness is immense. Chris Yankee was killed in a car accident last week. The world has lost a true individual. Chris lived on his own terms and saw the world through a unique perspective. He was a ninja on a BMX bike. He was a ninja every day of his life. If you met him, you liked him. Chris was a pretty low-key person, but the impact he made on our lives was huge. I could try to explain how funny he was or how clever, or how he seemed to see the world through eyes that were half 70s cartoon and half Bruce Lee, but I could never do Chris justice in words. There was much more to Chris than BMX, but it was a huge part of his life.
My heart goes out to Chris' family and friends, especially Solan Foster, his friend from beginning to end. Rest In Peace, Chris. You will never be forgotten.
