Remembering Dan Giguere: Call for Listener Support

On tonight's episode we discisussed the unexpected and sudden passing of Dan Giguere.  We also wanted to post the information provided to our website so that our listeners could easily access information about Dan's Celebration of life, as well as how to support this family in their time of need. Known as Coach Dan at the Sarasota School for Arts and Sciences and president of Sk8skool, the nonprofit corporation that operates the Payne skate park, Dan leaves behind his wife Alexandra, a stay-at-home-mom, and their three young boys. The Celebration of Life is planned for this Saturday, February 16th at First Baptist Church of Sarasota - 1661 Main Street. Doors will open at 5:00 and the Celebration will begin at 5:30pm. After the Celebration of Life, Alexandra would like everyone to walk, skateboard, bike or drive to the Payne Skate Park, 2110 Adams Lane, for a candlelight vigil. We also ask that our listeners consider supporting this family through donations of cash, gift cards for groceries or take-out food, size 4 diapers and other household items for Alex and her family. You can email us at to coordinate your donation. An online memorial has been set up at Alex is asking that friends, students and skaters post memories, stories and photos that she can share with her sons as they grow.
