Very sad news. Phreak was a real good guy. My prayers go out to his family. Including Maggie & Suzi, a couple of great dogs.

That is too bad. I really enjoyed meeting him. He had a passion for pushing the limits that was contagious.

My condolences to Phreak family and friends.

Minutes after loosing my sister in 2010 to cancer, I heard the following eel's song. Whenever I hear of a loss due to cancer or simply someone in the fight, I am instantly reminded of both my sister and a very fitting song. (The song is about E's sisters suicide.)

Oh man, WAY too young.

I never met Phreak, but we corresponded much over the years. He loved the outdoors, hiking and trail running with a zest of life that showed through.

So young. :(

He'll be missed.

My heartfelt condolences to his family.

I met Phreak on '05 on the section that I used to maintain in SNP. My sympathy to his sister and the rest of his family. He fought this disease courageously.

Been following his battle via facebook and he gave it one hell of a fight right up to the end and never lost sight of what REALLY matters. Had the pleasure of hiking in Georgia with Phreak. Rest well Phriend.

Phreak was a very good guy-he was a person who truly loved life, I'm sorry to hear of his passing at only the age of 42.

Wow, that is so sad to see. While cancer sucks, dying sucks a lot more. My memory of his posts was that he was an ego-less hiking machine with a great perspective on hiking and life. I certainly would have liked to have hiked with him, although he would've likely left me in the dust. RIP.

I'm late finding out about Phreak. Got the word from Marta this morning. I'm saddened by the news. Phreak and I were hiking partners and friends. He was a great guy. We shared many experiences and magical trail moments. I'm going to miss him.
