PostSubject: The Passing of Leroy Beal   Sat 08 Mar 2014, 21:02

Someone may have posted this and I missed it but I just learned about it and thought I would let everyone know. Sadly we lost a brother biker. Leroy Beal passed away Sunday, December 2, 2013. He made the decision to end things on his terms. Although he choose something against my beliefs the choice was his to make and I respect that. The following is quoted directly from his web site.
 
"I feel that it is irresponsible to squander limited resources and become a burden on my family, friends, and/or society. It is my life, therefore my choice as to how, and when, it will end. Prolonged agony, in old age, is not the way I want to live my last years. I want to go out while I'm feeling good and have a decent quality of life."
Link to his site

This is a link to his obituary

This is a link to the news article
Leroy may you rest in peace.

Thank you for the link. Very informative.

His instructions are pretty good and he wrote some interesting stuff. I can tell he enjoyed helping others with his innovation.

I've received a PM from an aggrieved member who had posted in this thread and who's post was one of several subsequently removed. I feel I should explain why the thread was trimmed.

The catalyst was a post by another member who used a derogatory term to describe the late Leroy Beal.

The word would have been insulting in any circumstances. In a thread concerning Leroy's death, it was particularly offensive. For that reason (alone) moderators decided to trim the content to the basic facts.
