We’re sad to hear that Rynn Berry, the 68-year-old man who collapsed while jogging in Prospect Park on New Year’s Eve, passed away not long after being identified by his half-brother following a wide-reaching effort to figure out who he was.
“I’m heartbroken to learn that Rynn Berry died,” wrote Fran Costigan, an expert on vegan desserts. “He was a gentle soul whose life touched so many.”
“Rest in peace, Rynn Berry, vegan scholar, historian, activist, and warm, gentle spirit,” tweeted Tracye McQuirter, author of By Any Greens Necessary. “I’ll miss you.”
