An ocean tribute for surfer and musician Eric Reno was held on Sunday in Sunset Beach, drawing about 200 friends and loved ones to the quaint Orange County beach community for a final farewell.
After a night of rain, the skies cleared Sunday morning for the tribute in front of Reno’s home. Forty-seven people entered the water for the memorial in honor of Reno, a 46-year-old who was pulled from the water while out surfing on April 21.
The Orange County Coroner’s Office has not released a cause of death.
Reno’s uncle, Alex Kiilehua of Corona, delivered a prayer to the crowd
