Memorial Service for Torin Tucker at Craftsbury Outdoor Center Thursday

“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.”-Ernest Hemingway

A great lover of Hemingway, Torin Tucker ’15 passed away competing in the Craftsbury Marathon on February 1st, 2014. To honor his incredible journey, we would like to invite you to remember Torin alongside the rest of the Dartmouth Ski Team.

The team will be meeting in the stadium area at Craftsbury Outdoor Center on Thursday February 6th at 4 p.m. We will ski out to the location on the Craftsbury Marathon course where Torin passed away, which will be marked by a Cairn constructed by the Center. There will be a short ceremony where we will read a passage, and observe a moment of silence. At this time, there will be two return options. Erik Fagerstrom ’14 will lead a group along the rest of the marathon course, finishing the 8K that Torin could not. The rest of the group will return to the stadium area via the most direct route. Of course, all are welcome to celebrate and remember Torin in the way they deem most fitting.

We cannot emphasize enough that everyone is welcome. Please be prepared for inclement weather, as well as potential darkness (headlamps recommended). Torin was an incredibly loving, dynamic and inclusive individual. We are confident that he would want anyone and everyone to join in the celebration of his life.

Torin’s life came to an end all too soon. Yet at the end, Torin was doing what he loved alongside people who he loved and in return loved him. Please direct any questions to either Annie Hart ’14 (anne.e.hart@dartmouth.edu) or Erik Fagerstrom (erik.t.fagerstrom@dartmouth.edu).
