    It is with distinct sadness that I note the passing a friend. Tom had a special eagerness and was a pleasure to be around. He was a great neighbor, always willing to lend a hand. He thoroughly enjoyed his motorcycles and all things mechanical.

    I do not think I will ever be able to ride past his house without feeling the loss of a friend.

    Very sad, i didn't know him but sad none the less.


    I found out that my new BIL's stepfather passed away this past week. He and his wife spent Christmas Day at our house and it was the first time I met him and the last. He was a pleasurable guy and it kinda screwed me up all week thinking about it.

    Sorry for the loss of your friend guys, sucks!

    I first "met" the mad viking in 2009, when I went, in the dark of night to "get" the North America TOR tag at the N.J. Vietnam Veteran's Memorial:

    Was one of his 1st posts on ADV.

    Since then, the Viking's egg (I'm not sure if he was the originator, but was the first "signer") has traveled all over North America, keeping hundreds of riders interested and riding around to obscure places. The viking lives on in a lot of our minds in addition to his family and friends.

    NOTE: the tag is, at the moment, in a very cool place in Alabama...

    Sorry for your loss, Haystack. May the mad viking RIP.:cry:cry

    things like this just shows us that our life here is short. Tom was young (relatively speaking) to pass away from natural causes. this should be a reminder to all of us that we never know the time when we will take our last breath. i don't know where Tom was spiritually but i pray that he is with the Lord now.
    here's to the loss of a good friend, neighbor, riding partner and tagger.

    Reminds me of words my father said the night my mother passed at 58,the only words he ever said on the matter.

    "Only the good die young boy".
