Memorial stone near Hateg Romania

I saw this memorial stone on the mount near Hateg Romania last summer: (coordinates: 45.59242,23.203983).
Does anyone know story behind it?

In the picture there is guy riding KLR and on the other side of stone many names.

A tough quest

Troita in memoria lui Sorin Popa = "crucifix in memory of Sorin Popa"
Nu te vom uita nicodata = "we will not forget".

Hateg, Romania = town in Hunedoara province of Romania. The area is famous for ancient sites of interest from dinosaurs and Dacian forts to medieval churches. Hateg Country Dinosaur Geopark.

Sorin (first name) and Popa (last name) are popular names in Romania, not unlike John Smith.

Science tells us none of us is further than 6 mediators from this traveller, but I gave up after using up all my 6 and not finding the first of them.
Best bet might be RTWDoug who is said to have a Romanian connection.

Thank you for information. I saw that stone last summer, when I was offroading on those mountains. I got curious, what happened to that guy. Did he die on the mount?
I'm going there again in the end of april (in four weeks) this year to ride some single tracks.
