Tony Rokov: I didn't know you, but I like you.

Fly free and go with God, buddy.

"About 20m from landing a tandem skydive, a freak wind twisted Tony’s parachute causing him and the teenage boy strapped to him to drop to the ground. In his last moments Tony positioned himself to protect the teenager from the worst of the impact. Devastatingly for everyone who knew and loved him, Tony didn’t survive his last act of bravery. Tony had been in the military for over 20 years so this certainly was not his first act of bravery.  While serving his country in some of the world’s most hostile places Tony put himself in danger countless times to protect others."

Update: My heart breaks, but go with God, buddy.
