    bikerdoc fought his last battle with the Reaper last night.

    He believed deeply in what THR was about and in helping those he knew out in the world and here in ours.

    He will be sorely missed by many.

    Very sorry to hear this very sad news. I didn't know him past his posts, they were always insightful and said much about him.

    Terrible news. He was sharp, I enjoyed his bluntness.

    Sad news for sure. No doubt about that.

    Though his contributions here were appreciated, his most meaningful were to and for his family and country.


    He recently PM'd me to thank me for something.

    This is my partial reply back to him.


    The 'little things he said' out side of THR that I was referring were about his wife. Subtle little things he said that seemed like the most important part of his life,,, his wife.

    THR lost a great one. But our loss pales in comparison......

    My condolences and best wishes to his wife, family.

    Sorry to hear this, he will be missed, condolences to his family.

    I remember one of his posts from Jan 2020, "this was me got a problem with it." And a picture of him.
