TRFlyBoy, Jim Kennedy, has passed away
« on: January 15, 2020, 10:30:52 AM »
I just learned from his wife that Jim passed away this week after a very short bout with an aggressive form of pancreatic cancer.  Jim wasn't very active on the boards (a little on STN) but some of you may remember him from group rides or movie day at my place.  Or from his appearance in many of my trip reports :(

RIP Jim, we may have drifted apart in the last few years but you were a part of many of my best riding memories.

Unbelievable.   He was such a great guy.   Always smiling.  My deepest sympathies.
