In Memoriam: Derrik Flahive '13
The College community is still mourning the death of Derrik Flahive ’13, who passed away on Tuesday, Nov. 15, 2011, in Chile, where he was studying abroad for the fall semester. He died in a tragic drowning accident after jumping about 30 feet into the Petrohué waterfall in the beautiful Vicente Pérez Rosales National Park. He was with his fellow exchange student, Samuel Edward, who was injured but survived.
A global studies major, Colby Cares About Kids mentor, varsity lacrosse player and avid drummer, Flahive is remembered fondly for his exuberant smile and love of life by people from all walks in the Colby community.
