Luca Chiarabini was a member of the San Bernardino County Sheriff Cave & Technical Rescue Team.  He was 47 years old.  He was born in Italy.  He died on August 3rd, 2017 while trying to cross the Kings River after coming back from a canyoneering trip.  He was a software developer by career, but he will be most remembered for his amazing adventures, international travel, active lifestyle, and larger than life personality.  Luca was a great friend, and he always made any day more interesting. He had an amazing passion for exploration. His mind was a wealth of knowledge for both caves and canyons. He was always willing to help others. He was an active member of local caving grottos, theSierra Club, and Canyoneering Meetup Groups.  He was the largest contributor to http://ropewiki.com.   We will miss him dearly.
