Playing fetch with their dog on a beach in Calif. turned tragic for a 16-year-old boy and his parents when sneaker waves pulled them away to their deaths on Saturday.

"Sneaker wave" warning signs dotted Big Lagoon Beach, but after a wave seemed to consume their dog as he was trying to fetch a stick thrown near the water, all mayhem broke loose.

First, 16-year-old Gregory Kuljian "Geddie" bolted out toward their "lost" pet, Fran. After Geddie was also pulled out by another wave, Howard Kuljian, 54, jumped in to save his son, followed by his wife Mary Scott,57, who both were also pulled under.

Left ashore to watch in horror was Geddie's girlfriend and his sister Olivia.

Later, the bodies of Geddie's parents were found, but the boy's body was never recovered. The dog, though, ended up getting to shore safely, according to the Associated Press.

Not only did many remember Geddie at school by wearing green due to a Facebook page reading, "Wear green for Geddie," but Twitter users took a moment to also post for him:

Jade Cervantes tweeted, You know something is meaningful when you just start crying because you remembered the one time you held his pencil for him

marymack95 If I have a son, I'm going to name him Geddie.
