I well remember seeing him race for ASA in the 1987 Minnesota State Fair. He was always said to be very popular because of his great sense of humor. Now I see that his humor was a mask that disguised personal turmoil.

Very sad news, indeed.
Had some pain in his chest they couldn't find. I guess he had enough of it.
