The ride when hell froze over; Some older members know this trip well. He was on a VMAX, most of us were not prepared for cold weather, snow, sleet and rain lol.  We all suffered though it and made it back. I know there is a picture of a few of us at the beach headed home.

Just a few of the great times with Jun. He was very kind, caring, and giving...not to mention funny as chit. God speed.

I am bringing the first aid kit, I hope I don't have to use it. See you guys tomorrow at HB.

Does it have a snake bite kit?  Hope so............cuz if I get bit on the ass I'm counting on you to suck the venom out.

I went searching for that thread and found this quote which made me smile :)  classic Jun.

LOL...Damn Andy you did some digging...yes...very classic Jun lol Thank you Andy for sharing that.

RIP Jun, I never met Jun, but from the good mentions of him in this thread, it is a huge loss to be saddened by.

RIP Jun:(  It was always a pleasure to have you around.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in one pretty well-preserved piece. One should rather skid in broadside thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming "WOW, what a ride"!!!

it has not been officially confirmed as far as I know of, but from my understanding it was health related issues.

So sad. I am thankful for meeting Jun, the wealth of knowledge that I acquired from him in the little time I hung out with him will be cherished.
