sad to report that one of our members and fellow turboforder, 50RACER (Bryan Short), passed away today.

Posted by his daughter on facebook:

Quote:My Dad, Bryan Short died today at 1:07 p.m. due to injuries from a motorcycle accident. Thank you for your prayers. We'll continue to need them as we navigate the next few weeks and months. This is the most recent picture of him with my Mom, the love of his life of 43 years. He loved us, he loved Jesus and he loved his grandbabies. And he never let any of us forget it. I will always, always miss him.

I never met the man, but he did help me out with some parts, seemed like a really nice guy.
My condolences to all who knew him.

I would love if we could send flowers or something to the family. I would be happy to donate to the cause if that can be arranged.

I met Bryan for the first time several years ago at Carlisle, and always looked forward to seeing him there after first meeting him there. He was a great guy. I will miss him. Our thoughts and prayers to Brian's family during this difficult time.

I just found out about Bryan’s passing. I never met him but he sold me many parts while I owned my TC. Always willing to help a fellow enthusiast and he had a passion & love for these cars. I saw on YouTube they did a cruise in his honor. My condolences to his family. He will be missed for sure.

Yes, let me echo that. I just read of his passing as well.

I too bought parts from him over the years, although we never spoke on the phone and I also had never met him. But his vast knowledge was a great resource for the rest of us.

May God bless and watch over his family during this difficult time.
