Good morning everyone,
It has been a while since I have been on the site, but I wanted to pass along some sad news. Joe Gallagher (A.K.A. Mavwrek) took his life late last night. Joe had been struggling with personal issues that eventually took him. He battled back several times and I hoped for the best. As soon as his family passes along the funeral arrangements, I will make sure to post them here.
I know, at times, that Joe rubbed some of you the wrong way. I knew Joe on a deeper level as we lived 20 minutes apart. Joe was a true friend who would be there if help was needed. Joe has a middle school daughter that his world revolved around. Joe and I had many great days out on the Rexes and would often sit around a talk about our favorite rides. He loved his ZRX and we enjoyed riding together. Joe held many of you in high regards and would often turn to you when he was stumped with bike issues. I know that he would have wanted me to pass this information along to you.
Please pray for his family. I can't imagine what they are feeling.
