Monday morning, friends and family members paddled out in honor of 25-year-old Daniel Stein. Daniel was hit and killed Saturday morning when crossing 13th Avenue and State Road A1A in Jacksonville Beach. The group paddled out to the Atlantic Ocean at 9 a.m. at 8th Avenue North in Jax Beach, to remember the life of their young friend. Stein worked at Tacolu, and most recently, the Flying Iguana. “He was just such a fun, happy, positive guy who would do anything for anyone at the drop of a dime,” Anne Callaway, Tacolu manager, said.
