Dave Freeman, co-author of “100 Things to Do Before You Die” sadly passed on August 17th after falling and hitting at his head here at his home in Venice. There are many obituaries around the web that are worth reading in tribute to Dave, who helped popularize the notion of “Bucket Lists” and living life while you can.
It was an honor for Venice that a man as well traveled and adventuresome as David chose to make his home here. Venice is a place of locals and those on journeys, a place for the introverted and extraverted, lovers and fighters, dreamers and realists and all others in-between.
“This life is a short journey,” the book says. “How can you make sure you fill it with the most fun and that you visit all the coolest places on earth before you pack those bags for the very last time?”
Thanks for adventuring the world and choosing to call Venice home Dave. RIP.
