    Tragic loss at Nisene, help requested

    This was posted on Facebook by Sasha Turrentine. Sharing here for more visibility. Tragic news. I hope someone here can help her.


    My dad, Tom Turrentine, collapsed and died of heart complications while on a bike ride last Tuesday, June 2, 2020, past Sand Point in Nisene Marks, in Aptos, California, near our family home. It is an understatement to say what a shock this is: we were not aware of any underlying heart condition, he was active as ever and very good about going to the doctor. But he seemed to perhaps have had a coronary issue, although that is all we know at this point.

    I am writing to ask, to beg, the Santa Cruz County Community to SHARE this post, as my mother and I search for any information about his exact location when he fell off his bike. He was found by a group of cyclists as far as we understand, and we are looking to contact anyone who may have engaged with him, and would know where exactly he was when found. Please share, and please DM me or call me 831-566-7920 with any information specifically regarding this.

    I understand this will be hard news for many, and I welcome love, support and stories via this thread, email or text, but please be respectful, and keep the DMs and voice calls to information about that day which might help us find the people who could help us grieve this unfathomable loss.

    My deepest thanks.

    Sasha

    So sorry for his friends and family. I was riding in SC that day. It was a beautiful, late-spring kind of day. You might want to pass this request along to Epicenter.

    RIP Tom

    @caveman ??
    Maybe MTBR hasn't caught up to contemporary tagging methods. I'll ping him directly.
    $500 million for more irresponsible EBRPD land management? No thanks.

    oh my goodness I'm so sorry. I was heading up the hill that day when the State park rangers and fire crews were coming down the road. I talked to a guy at Sand point but all he knew was some one had been evacuated.
