Family: Student from Michigan dies while hiking in Norway

Posted: Updated:

Family members say a 21-year-old Western Michigan University student has died in a fall while hiking in a mountainous region of Norway.

The university says Dallas Rauker was attending Hogeschool Utrecht in the Netherlands. The Kalamazoo Gazette reports he traveled to Norway in mid-October while on break from classes and was found dead over the weekend of injuries from a fall.

The senior from the southwestern Michigan community of Lawton was majoring in integrated supply management and minoring in international business.

Garrett Rauker says he and his brother often talked about adventures that awaited them in life, such as road trips and scuba diving. He told the newspaper that he's going to miss "all of the things that we said we would do together that, now, we can't."
