Rest in Peace, Rachel

Rachel Eileen von Tungeln

May 18, 2000 – April 8th, 2017

Rachel von Tungeln was the daughter of John von Tungeln and Kat Wasabi of The Good Geeks.

Rachel passed away on Saturday night under the kind care of Denver Hospice as a result of complications of Juvenile Batten Disease. Rachel was diagnosed in 2009.

With the help of our customers and the community of Hull, we held 3 Road Races (Team Rachel Race 4 A Cure) and raised over $100,000 for Batten Disease Research. Rachel is forever free of her disease, blindness and her wheelchair.

Rachel is survived by her parents, sister Julie, and brothers, London and Boston.

    Hello. My name is Ben, and I was a great friend of Rachel’s. I went to school with her, and she was a bright, caring and innocent young girl. My heart goes out to all her family, as well as everyone who knew her. She was one of the most inspiring people I ever knew; despite her struggle with blindness, Rachel made the most of her hard life, and was just an extraordinarily wonderful person. She is free now, and I hope she knew, and knows, that everyone in her life cared about her.

    My sincerest condolences,

    -Ben Foley
