NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- New Canaan High School grad Jeffrey DiRubio died on April 18, according to the New Canaan Advertiser. He was 32.

DiRubio worked in the information technology field before joining with the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) where he and a team scaled Nanda Devi to 20,000 feet.

DiRubio is survived byhis parents, Jeffrey, and Joanna; Grandparents, Janet and Wallace Splawn, his siblings Jessica, Matthew, Christopher and Nicholas, many aunts, uncles, and cousins, as well as his dogs Bogie, Franco and Bear.

Because of his experiences, NOLS is looking to fund a scholarship in DiRubio's name to send at least one person on a similar life-changing trip.
