Popcorn's last ride
      #362774 - 12/10/08 06:35 PM

Folks,
This is Popcorn's son. Some of you may have known my father, may have even gone for a ride with him. For that reason, I feel I should let you know he has taken his last ride. My father was injured at work. He fell off his truck and hit his head. At this point we believe he is no longer with us, we will know for sure in the morning. If you are the praying type, please say one for a fellow rider. One thing is for sure, he loved riding his bike and enjoyed talking parts and rides with anyone.

God bless,
Randall

I lost my Dad almost exactly 9 years ago due to a head injury, so in a small way I know what you might be going through at this time.

My dad passed away today at 1:00 pm. The head injury was too much and the swelling was too severe for him to survive. Following his wishes, we have donated his organs. He will ride on in others. My family and I appreciate all the kind words, and I am glad he was able to meet a few of you guys.
Thanks again,
Randall

I met Phil face to face at the NorEaster this year. We had PM'd and e-mailed a number of times over the past couple years so it was really cool to meet him and get to know him face to face. A very cool guy.

Randall your family and you are most certainly in our prayers and in our thoughts, those who post and those who read and are saddened but not sure what to say, we all feel your loss and are with you.
