Zane Timpson has passed away at the age of 26. Jordan Maxham confirmed the devastating news via Instagram. The heroin skateboarder was born and raised in Leucadia, California, and moved to San Francisco in 2013 and stayed there for nearly seven years. Recently, he called Encinitas home.
In Maxham’s Instagram post, he shared some thoughts after the death of his close friend: “I cried all day yesterday. I embraced the professional model board that you signed for me. I took it to skate and kept walking. Go ahead. I read our text and called you. You didn’t answer.

In his recent Bronson Speed Co. life video, Timpson talked about the importance of pushing yourself as much as possible: “You always become humble, that’s what you should be… If you are not humble, you are not trying. “
Strangely, Tipson shared some memories of Henry Gatland in “Life on the Fast Lane”, as well as his aunt Linda, revealing that he took her death certificate and ashes wherever he went. He also revealed the origin of his name: “Zane is the name of the ending sitcom; my mother came up with it,” Tipson recalled in the video above.
“Basically, my mother was in the hospital for some baby-related things. She saw this character she likes very much on a show. At the end of the credits, the actor’s name is’Zane’. So this is where she came up with this name. “Rip Zane.
