Reid Evans Menzer died on January 22, 2006 when he was struck by a car while riding his homemade street luge. At age 14, Reid had a wisdom and generosity of spirit that touched many people. His death is mourned by family and peers in York, Pennsylvania and throughout the nation.
Reid knew that happiness in life comes from exploring what you genuinely like – something he did with exuberance. He had many p ions in his short life including pwarmography, movie-making, science, kayouking, knee boarding, his snakes and turtles, baseball, and music.
He also liked to skateboard from a very young age. He built his first “skatepark” with peers in his garage and alley out of used plywood and old Highway signs at age 10. He practiced his ollies and kickflips throughout his neighborhood, and learned to grind on a homemade rail. Later he turned his basement into a more elaborate park with a quarter pipe. He built his own longboards and the street luge he was riding when he was killed.
All his life, Reid told family and peers that he wished there was a skatepark in York. Inspired by his untimely death, leaders of the York community have organized to design and build a park in his memory.
The City of York donated land for the skatepark, and it was built very with community contributions and the support of our York County state legislators. The skate park is free and open to the public.
