RIP Bill (Rydther/B12Bill) 04/21/08

I am saddened to be the bearer of bad news. Bill passed away last night. He was not riding when it happened, and those close to him will hear about the specific circumstances.

Our community has sustained a terrible loss, and this thread should be a tribute to him. I'll miss you Bill.



I don't really know what else to say, and a lot of you have said a lot of it already. Here are some of your words shared in this thread and in PMs:

A great guy, hella cool, a very nice and friendly guy, one of the nicest people I met on BARF, patient, kind, a really nice guy, always there to listen, always there to help, one of those guys you felt like you've known for ever even if you just met him, a genuine guy, friendly, listened when you spoke, remembered what you said, one of the nicest most helpful people I've ever met, humble, with a dry, wry sense of humor, one of the good ones, a knowledgeable guy, willing to lend a hand, a genuinely wonderful man, a great guy to ride with, and hang out and chat with, the kind of guy you know will always be around when he's needed, a big man, with an even bigger heart, who touched the lives of many of us, Bill made motorcycles cool, a mainstay of the BARF community, a great roommate, a great, close friend...


There will be a memorial gathering at Bill's place, hosted by his roommates, Mike and Rick, on Saturday, May 3, 2008, at 5 p.m.. Please see this thread for details:

I very much enjoyed talking to Bill at several social gatherings. This is sad news, indeed. Condolences to those closest to Bill, may he rest in peace.
