    Hey guys,

    I just learned that @firstvictory has passed away from a heart attack. His son posted on his Facebook. I never met him but I always enjoyed our conversations and his humor. He will be missed.

    Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.

    I'm trying to think of what to say but I'm at a lose. I'm shocked. He was a big part of making this place fun and seemed like a fun person. Just wow. You just never know when it's your time.

    I didn't even know how to let you guys know. I just sat here trying to think what to say. I just knew I'd get to ride with him one day down in Miami. And finally get to see his BBC (everyone who knew him should get that joke). I regret not getting to meet him. Sure seemed like a hell of a guy.

    He just laughed at my joke only a few days ago. That's crazy, he will be missed.

    @CPT PYRO I know. When my mother in law died I was trying to figure out how to tell her the entire time waiting for her to drive home. It was horrible. In the end you just have to come out with it. I hate giving/getting news like this but truly appreciate you doing it.


    @broggyr can you please place this in the In Memoriam forum.

    R.I.P. Brother.

    Wife and I met him on the 1st Quest For Key West ride. He was kind enough to buy us lunch.

    He was the same fun clown face to face as he was around here. He will be missed...
