We grieve of the loss of a great person. Rodrigo Alexandre da Silva Serrano will always be remembered as a strong, gentle, joyful, hard working and warm person.

As a Karanba participant, Rodrigo had two hours of travel to attend our activities but that didn't stop him. His efforts and positive energy earned him a spot on the Journey of Life to Scandinavia in 2008, and he got to participate in the tournaments Norway Cup, Plussbank Cup and Cup No 1.

After his time at Karanba, Rodrigo struggled with finding the right path, but he brought his life back on track and established himself with family and honest work. He got married in 2011 and worked two jobs to provide for his family. He leaves behind two small children.

Thank you very much for all the good memories, and thank you for fighting for an honest life as a hardworking and providing father. This makes you a great role model to people around you. You will always be in our thoughts.

Rodrigo was shot and killed by the police, who mistook his umbrella for a machine gun.
