Galveston had a ceremony recently naming their skatepark after Johnny Romano, a 10-year-old skater who died last year after fighting leukemia.

"He would be embarrassed we were making such a fuss over him," Rhonda Gregg, a family friend who spearheaded construction of the skate park, told the Galveston County Daily News. "Johnny was a rock star little skater pro, but he did it just because he loved it."
