TRIBUTES have flowed for 19-year-old Alex Roszak, who died after falling from the back of a ute in Frankston on 19 April.
Mr Roszak was a keen skater, with the team at the Frankston Skate Park last week paying tribute him on social media.
“The Frankston Skate Park community lost someone incredibly dear to us,” they said.
“Alex Roszak embodied everything it meant to be a skater in Frankston. He was always down at the park, always skating, and was polite and caring to everyone he met. It’s losses like these that remind us to make sure we cherish everyone in our community and we stay together.
“Us staff at the Shack are by no means medical professionals, but please, anyone who needs to speak about things, come talk to us. Rest in peace Alex, as long as we remember you, you’ll never be truly gone.”
There have now been over 100 deaths on Victorian roads since the start of the year.
Mr Roszak’s funeral will be held this week. A gofundme page has been set up to help the family with funeral costs. The page has raised over $2000 as of 26 April.
