I grew up with and graduated high school with a kid who lived directly next door to me. We've known each other our whole lives. Parents are still friends with my parents. I still have somewhere a photo of the two of us all dressed up and ready to step on the school bus for the very first time! Grew up playing backyard football, baseball, etc. He went on to be a very very successful high school athlete and excelled at wrestling in particular. We were not extremely close in high school but we were always friends. I saw him about 4-5 years ago at another classmates wedding. I found out today that he took his own life on Sunday. No further details have been made available. He is leaving behind some kids (I think teens by now), ex-wife, a girlfriend, family and of course friends. Very tragic and sad!
