RIP my friend, only knew him from the forum but he has helped me a few times and I always enjoyed his post on here. He would tell it like it was and I had a lot if respect for him just from the way he come off in his post. Wish I could have met him a time or two.

R.I.P. John, I'm sorry I never got to meet you. Your info shared was always welcome and educational.

Matt, I hope I get to meet you and shake your hand sooner than later! What you did those last days will always be legendary.

...on that SA run on Lake George (almost 9 years ago) when he found out we were missing a boat after dealing with the 3' waves coming back. Immediately he was backing his boat back down the ramp to look for a missing boat. I remember him saying "moodfood ain't back yet?" and taking off.

A quote from cntry141...

Rick, that *specific* selfless act of kindness was on my mind as I helped him in his final months. I felt I owed it to him - not just for that day and what he did for me & Laura, but because he did that ALL THE TIME for EVERYONE. :)

Cntrys last ride was on the big Lake George the night of the full moon which he had requested and recieved. We did take a break to fire up the fry for some Lake George frog legs and such.

Never got to meet him in person, but he gave me a lot of advice on my VW build. So sorry to hear of his passing. My prayers are with the family and friends. "A WEALTH OF KNOWLEDGE AND A KIND SOUL". R.I.P
