I'm sorry I didnt get this thread stuckied sooner. Brian emailed me before posting and I meant to promote it after he did post.

Its very sad to loose another friend of ours in such a small community. Considering our size, it has been a rough year.

I'll look into some for Tis, Steve, Doug, and Brad. Not sure what but maybe do something with their profiles and signatures that reflect something that they are missed, it would be seen anytime their posts/contributions are seen in the threads.

Even just a simple page or separate board folder with photo of them with their truck and dates.

It would of been Brads 40th birthday today. The thought that his pregnant wife and 4 young kids will be spending today attending his funeral is unimaginable. Happy Birthday my friend. Im glad I got to know you. Wish it had been for longer. Rest in Peace...

I just happened upon this thread this morning.
How incredibly sad.
It could be any one of us. My heart goes out to his family.
I especially identify, same age, young kids - I gave up my Duc years ago and even now hesitate to throw a leg over so much as my brother's KTM in the woods. Just too much to lose.

Godspeed Brad! I never met you, but you sound like a quality person and I will definately be thinking of your family.

Barry, you mentioned you were going to present his wife with a check after the services (which I beleive are going on right now as I write this), is it too late to donate? If so, are you going to start another fund. It's absolutely amazing that so much has been raised in so little time. (that's really the only happy thought I can grab onto right now).
still use your Paypal account lsted earlier?

We are going to be selling some used parts and all of the proceeds will go to this (you will pay to Barry's pay-pal and we will forward the parts from here).

I will post the parts in the for sale section with a link to this thread. Bidding wars are encouraged to help raise funds.

A fellow Rover and motorcycle enthusiast has been lost. RIP.

Barry, please let me know if it is too late to do this. I just caught up on this thread.

Thanks Mike,

Anything I receive after the funeral today I will forward over to the family via the account info that Brian gave. It won't be too late to donate and I have no problem handling it.

Everyone has been extremely generous. There have been some huge donations of 500 and 1000 and it leaves me in awe that we have come together as a community based on the board since I know most of us have never met in person.

------ Follow up post added November 3rd, 2011 07:50 AM ------

Oh and if ECR is selling awesome stuff I call dibs!!!

Barry, i know you're probably getting ready, but any way to find out if it hit 5 grand? if it's not there yet, i imagine we can work to get it over the hill.

Just spoke to Barry and it looks like we're over $5K! This is great guys!

We've got a couple of hours before the funeral so there is still time.

Don't stop donating. We can still get additional funds to the family after the funeral as we plan to be in touch with the family to help out with Brad's truck.
