When his father died in a car accident, it hit his family hard, but he and Adam helped their sister, Julie, recover from the pain by taking their father's place in the house, temporarily ignoring their own pain. He met a professional surfer from Hawaii and married her as soon as he turned eighteen years old. He followed her to Hawaii to live with her, and travels with her for her competitions. Part of his reason for leaving La Push was to escape the memories of his deceased father.
