In my job I come across a lot of people, but few have touched me like Timothy Lupton-Stegall.
He was a fighter, a bright light in a dim situation and a great competitor.
Lupton-Stegall was also an autistic cancer patient.
According to Margot Kelly, a cross country/track reporter, Lupton-Stegall died Thursday morning.
He kept such a positive, strong attitude through it all that he made everyone around him, including his Special Olympic teammates, in a good mood.
