Richard Taylor had a catch phrase. If something went wrong in life – something that might send even the most resilient into a tail spin – he would break open his trademark smile and reassure those around him “It’s all good”. […]
It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to tell you that our beloved Brett Urbas has passed away. If it was not for this amazing young man and his family, Modern Skate Park would not exist as it is today.
He began as a naturally gifted skater that eventually became World Champion. He was loved and respected by everyone that crossed his path.
He was hit by a car while skating on Thursday, June 30, 2015 doing what he loved to do and did better than most…
Please make any donation that you wish to this site in order for us to create a lasting memorial for one of the finest young men that has graced God’s green earth.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Urbas family and friends as we deal with incredible loss of a great human being.
We need for him to live on through us by living our lives with his positive spirit.
Bryan Bell. November 30, 1977- September 1, 2014 (RIP).
We have just received the very sorrowful news that Bryan Bell who had been missing for almost a week, has died in a sudden and tragic way. This was, of course, unexpected and has left his family and friends devastated.
Bryan’s parents, who are serving as missionaries in Belize, were able to come home to be with their family and join them in the search of their son because of the overwhelming and generous giving of family and friends. On the day of their arrival in San Diego they were informed that Bryan’s body had been located in San Diego Bay and that his identity had been confirmed by the San Diego Medical Examiner.
Now the family has the added concern of a proper burial for Bryan. Bryan was the friend of hundreds of people around the world as a result of his career as a professional inline skater. His early videos of the sport captured the spirit and culture of the skating community. Bryan also made many friends through his music and art. He seemed to excel at everything he attempted. But perhaps his best gift was the friendship and unselfish love that he gave to all.
With your help and support we can pay tribute to our good friend, Bryan Bell, and lay him to rest in a respectful and honoring way.
