I didn't know him but I was talking to Lance Canfield who knew him well along with Bender former Banshee rider. Anyone whose golden in their books is the same in mine. I have ridden the Canyon and appreciate all the work he put in.

We wish him happy trails in the next life.

What i do want to do is bring attention to the huge medical bills that will dog his family and would encourage anyone who can, to give a little if they have the means.
