I'd been aware of Hoho from interacting online for years before I finally met him. He came to the first BARF Jam back when we held them and didn't miss one thereafter. He brought a guitar, set it against the wall and listened all night, each time.

Hoho was eager to participate in all kinds of BARF social events and rides. He didn't seem to want to be the center of attention, but somehow everyone knew him.

I got to know him better as time went on and found him to be the same in real life as he was online: Friendly, kind, graceful. Sometimes, when people are going though tough times in life, you can see it reflected in their interactions with others on BARF. If you look back over his posts, you don't really find negativity. He was the same sweet man, who wanted the best for others.

His way of being was and is inspiring. I'm hanging onto that idea tightly as I mourn his passing.

We weren’t social in person but I knew him through friends and the forum...

You’ve touched me more than most. Your sickness and passing has had me in tears. I took time off to evaluate my life and the love I have for others. You meant a lot.

Just goes to show how much you impact others without knowing

Much love brother

He made the world a better place just by being himself. Grace, humility, and massive courage. He set a high bar.

The last time I think we really hung out and talked was Weaverville last year. Awesome gesture with the re-naming.

Some of my favorite memories with him were from Kernville last time we were down there. Next weekend will be bittersweet for sure.

Horace deserved better, sadly he got us.

He was a good guy and genuinely seemed to have fun here and there.

Adios buddy.

I will miss you Hoho. You were such an ambassador for Barf and a role mode for all of humanity. Rest in peace my friend.

The world is definitely a little more dim today. Seldom is there such a warm, genuine and gentle person as Hoho. I will carry with me until I die the many memories we had riding, shooting, eating ice cream and absinthe discussions. It's not fair that the truly good ones are taken so young.

He was such a sweet dude, funny too. I'm glad that motorcycles and barf made our paths cross.

I went to see him last week. His family was so warm and welcoming despite their grief. I want to extend my deepest condolences to them. We share your sadness and your love for him.

Ride in peace, friend.

HoHo was definitely one of the good ones. It was inspiring how upbeat he was during his treatment. He will be sorely missed by the world, as it as dimmed without his presence.

Ice cream, chocolate, alcohol, and Cheetos in his honor.

lying on the stones on the shore. in the dark. muscles torn. bones broken. heart aching. waiting for the tide to rise and take you into sweet oblivion. and then dawn breaks. and the glow flows over you. and you open a swollen eye, and cry at the beauty of the sun on the horizon. and think maybe...maybe you can pull yourself up - and make it one more day. maybe. one more day. and you rise.
