Unhappy Godspeed Hoho

Dear Members,

It is with a very heavy heart that I am letting you know we lost one of the best people of barf. Hoho passed after a long battle with cancer.

The man was gold in my book. A good soul for sure and fun to hang with. A gentleman to boot. We went on a lot of Rallies together after he joined barf in 2011 and bought a new bike in 2012. His Triumph which he road until last year.

Several barfers knew he was struggling with the disease, but I was hopeful after he bounced back enough to come to the Midsummer Magic Rally last year.

I had gone to see him a couple weeks ago and brought him bruschetta. He said he wanted to eat some good food. He was in a wheel chair then and I rolled him down the hall to a room where we sat, ate and chatted. He was weak, but still hopeful and so was I. He shared his regret that he turned down an offer to be a barf moderator, so I said what about now?
He said yes and quick confirmation with our Admin's had him in the new shooting gallery forum (his idea to pursue Mototireguy’s idea. ) and also the kitchen sink. He really dug in and participated. It felt good to see him do that and he seemed to enjoy it.

Many other barfers visited him there and then in the hospital during his last days. When I went to the Hospital last weekend I met his Dad, Auntie, Sister and others on Sunday. Wonderful people. It was sad to see his Dad so down. He had just flown in from the Philippines on Friday. Glad he got to see his son and share some precious time together all be it sad. Condolences to them

You son touched many people and I am sure you can tell a lot of folks here loved him.

Hoho generally enjoyed people and showed it. Here he started some fun stuff poking carries an axe. Many laughs together. Man I am going to miss him .....and I know many of you will too. Once again the barf heart has a whole to be repaired. Time will stitch it up, but there will always be a scar.

In his honor we are going to rename the Mid-Summer Magic Rally to the Hoho Magic Rally.

His magic touched many of us (specifically Rally Riders and lots of social events in person) and that magic will continue every time we go to Weaverville and for me probably all of them and more.

Godspeed Hoho
Love ya man.

EDIT. I may edit your post to embed pictures into them.
Hope you understand.

I only knew him from the rallies and here on Teh Barf. His passing has left a hole in the fabric of our life.
So sad.
bike X miles=smiles
smiles χ bike=miles
smiles χ miles=bike.
It's simple math.

Hoho was the sweetest guy. A proper bloke. My wife remembers him fondly. What a loss.
