    Some bad news Today

    Missed a few calls today on my phone and then Goobr got a hold of me, gave me the very sad news that RUDEDOG, Craig Person, passed away.

    Sorry I don't have any details on his passing.

    Craig was a big part of this board for a long time, probably the most opinionated person I've ever met. You always knew where you stood with him.

    Anyway he hasn't been on the board much in the last few years, but he was one heck of a great guy and I will miss him.

    Rest in peace Buddy, Red is faster of course.

    Iíll let yíall know if there are funeral arrangements, donation sites or whatever if I find them. Iíll post it in this thread. Tried to call Edie but went VM of course. Miss Vicki and Perko are my eyes and ears on this one.
    I told Pete, Rude and me were best friends even though we fought like cats and dogs. Yeah, he was one selfish sob but he would give you the shirt off his back.
    RudeDog introduced me to the ZRXOA back in 2002 when I first moved to FL. He is responsible for me knowing all you guys. I havenít cried in a long time and I ainít crying now but Iíd be lieing if I said a tear wasnít running down my cheek.
    Rude, you and Daddy will be my co-drivers today.
    And yes, Red is fastest.

    Thanks for letting everyone know, Goob/Pete..........guess I've known Rude Dog since one of the first ZRX gatherings in Daytona.......probably 2000 or 2001........down at the Lighthouse (maybe?). A wake up call to show we are just temporary on this big round ball. I guess chuckc and Dog are arguing somewhere now.......

    Re: Some bad news Today

    Yeah, sad news indeed. I heard the news through Fb last night.

    I met Craig a few times. Him and I met-up at Sears Point for a NASCAR event and I even spent an afternoon at his house in Sebastopol. We BBQ'd some burgers and it was the first time I ever took shots of Vodka... All his idea, of course.

    Anyway...Yeah, I've read his heated opinions, watched him get banned a time or three, but I know for sure that he was a beautiful person on the inside; I've experienced it for myself.

    RIP RudeDog

    Sad news indeed. Craig was a huge ZRX fan and an OA supporter for a long time.
    His FL home was open to rexers on many occasions. Rest in peace brother..

    Rode with Craig a number of times. Sorry to hear of his passing.

    He seemed to enjoy is time in Nor Cal, and when he moved, he seemed to be enjoying a golden time with his lady. They were gardening and creating a life in the new place.

    Re: Some bad news Today

    I just heard and could finally get to a computer.
    The Dog is/was friend. He was doing poorly for quite a while. He wanted help, but wouldn't accept it. I have a deep love for that man, and I always will. He had one of the biggest hearts I have ever met, all while being an ornery hump.
    I have a Rudedog oil pan on my ZRX because I snapped the drain plug off while loading the bike into the Toyhauler. He walked to his truck and handed me the pan and said, "You need this more than I do." Would not take a anything for it, saying "You have done plenty for all of us here, just take it."

    As I said, A great big heart.

    I'll miss him.

    Re: Some bad news Today

    Wow, really sad news for me, I rode and shared a lot of good memories with Rudedog, visited his home in Kissimmee 4-5 times for barbecues, etc. Bunch of rallies in Georgia, International, etc. Even did the SUDO TRACK day several times and Florida Lakes ride, nothing but good memories of him and those early ZRXOA get togethers, yes he did not sugarcoat anything, but he had a great heart.

    Had limited contact with him on FB (not my thing) after he left Florida
