Dylan Rieder passed away at the very young age of 28 on Oct. 12 due to complications from leukemia, which he had been battling for the past year, The Ride Channel reported. And though the young professional skateboarder has been taken from the world far too soon, he remains in the hearts of those who loved him, and in the pictures that captured his wonderful life. See some of the amazing pics of Dylan above.
Seeing pictures of Dylan with his beloved pet dog, dressed up with spooky makeup, sitting with fellow star Cara Delevingne, modeling, and lounging casually outdoors on a nice day, just break our hearts. It is so hard to look at the pictures of him during these times in his life, when he seemed to not have a care in the world, but we hope it can help bring closure to those who loved him.
Dylan began to skate professionally at only 9 years old in his hometown of Westminster, California. he went pro at the age of 18 and ended up working with skate companies like Birdhouse, Osiris, Rasa Libre, Quicksilver, Huf, F*cking Awesome and Alien Workshop. His breakout skating role was in Transworld Skateboarding’s 2006 A Time To Shine. Dylan also spent time modeling, and was part of DKNY’s Spring 2014 Ad Campaign, which also featured Cara and Jourdan Dunn. We hope his memory is honored through these pictures that tell his life’s story.
