Sophia Bush Mourns Google Exec Dan Fredinburg, Her Ex Who Was Killed in Avalanche

By    |   Monday, 27 Apr 2015 09:20 AM

Actress Sophia Bush is mourning the death of her ex-boyfriend, Google executive Dan Fredinburg, who died in an avalanche on Mount Everest triggered by the Nepal earthquake.

Fredinburg was one of more than 17 people killed when the earthquake triggered a massive avalanche on the world's tallest mountain, according to E! News. His sister Megan posted a message on Instagram Saturday confirming his death.




Bush, who plays Erin Lindsay in the television series "Chicago P.D.," also posted a message on Instagram before attending the White House Correspondents Dinner on Saturday.


 

There are no adequate words. Today I find myself attempting to pick up the pieces of my heart that have broken into such tiny shards, I'll likely never find them all. Today I, and so many of my loved ones, lost an incredible friend. Dan Fredinburg was one-of-a-kind. Fearless. Funny. A dancing robot who liked to ride dinosaurs and chase the sun and envision a better future for the world. His brain knew how to build it. His heart was constantly evolving to push himself to make it so. He was one of my favorite human beings on Earth. He was one of the great loves of my life. He was one of my truest friends. He was an incredible brother, a brilliant engineer, and a damn good man. I'm devastated and simultaneously so deeply grateful to have known and loved him, and to have counted him as one of my tribe. I was so looking forward to our planned download of "all the things" when he got home. I am crushed that I will never hear that story. I am crushed knowing that there are over 1,000 people in Nepal suffering this exact feeling, knowing that they too will never hear another tale about an adventure lived from someone that they love. Disasters like this are often unquantifiable, the enormity is too much to understand. Please remember that each person who is now gone was someone's Dan. Please remember that our time on this Earth is not guaranteed. Please tell those you love that you do. Right now. This very minute. And please send a kiss to the sky for my friend Dan. His energy is so big and so bright, and it's all around us, so put some love toward him today. And then hug your loved ones again. #goodbyesweetfriend #savetheice #Nepal #AdventureswithDAN

E! News said Bush and Fredinburg became a couple in March 2013 and broke up in February 2014, but agreed to remain friends. Bush spent most of her time on the "Chicago P.D." set in Illinois while Friedinburg found himself at Google in Northern California, keeping them apart for most of the relationship, reported People magazine.

"They both care about one another and it was completely amicable," a source told People last year. "They decided to end their relationship in February. When you see one another for 24 hours every four weeks, it's impossible to maintain a romantic relationship. They weren't able to spend the time together that was necessary to nurture that kind of relationship."
