The death of an 18-year-old Chilliwack man Sunday has prompted expressions of grief and sorrow online.
Adam Burchart died Sunday evening after falling from the back of a pickup truck.
His death has shocked his friends, who described the teen as a "good guy," a "great friend," and a talented baseball and hockey player.
"Rest easy Adam, We love you. Hope you're making angels smile just like you made us smile," read one tweet.
Another said: "Can't believe this is happening."
On Facebook, one person remembered Burchart as someone with a big heart who "would go out of his way to solve people's problems."
Burchart's death even prompted a local garage band, Lucky Draw, to record and dedicate a song called "Fly Away" to the teen in the hours after news of his death spread through Chilliwack.
Burchart's Facebook page said the teen worked at Canada Post and had graduated from Sardis secondary school this year.
