To support his family, David Angle spent his life as a crane operator. When he fell out of a 15-foot high crane in 1985, everything changed for his family. Angle reportedly got up from the accident and walked himself to the hospital.

At the hospital, he went into a coma and passed away. The loss affected Kurt deeply. His life would never be the same. When he heard the news of his father’s death he had to decide for himself how to carry on.
