    Remo was a truly unique and great guy. I met and hung around with he and Guy at CruiseFests, but got to know him well at our Carlisle marathons. He had a great intellect, quick wit, and could take and dish out all the trash talk that happens at Vette get-togethers. We had things in common, including wearing Army green clothes back in the day. My best wishes and prayers to his wife, son and great friend, Guy.

    Has anyone heard from Guy? How is he doing? You're right Catbert, he was a unique individual. I was just thinking about his sense of humor after my last post and how he could lead you on, then laugh his arse off. Here he is with some of CAC's "finest".

    From left: Guy, Blackdog, Bud (Yoda), Lou (Rowdy1), and Remo. That was a great time!

    Remo, I raise my glass to the original founding member of "The West Townsend Corvette Club",
    and say "May you have clear skies ahead, may your journey be blessed and happy, and may
    we all meet at a gathering when we get there." Say HI to Jane Ann too. Gonna miss you Remo!

    OH NO!

    We had heard that he was very ill and we all were pulling for him. I really missed him last year at Carlisle.

    I always had alot of fun with him coming into my seminars and heckling me with Guy. But yet, we could sit down in the bar at Carlisle and BS for hours, just having a blast.

    He will be missed for his insane love of Corvette, his ability to keep everything UNserious and fun and just putting a smile on peoples face. He was so very special and smiles always followed him, ESPECIALLY MINE.


    I wish all the best for his grieving family and if there is anything we can do, do not hesitate to ask.

    I've talked with Guy over the past several days, and he was going to post something about Remo's death after the funeral, etc. Guy and Remo were more than best friends...they were like brothers, and I know Guy is devastated, as we who knew Remo are, also. I know he is no longer in pain, and that's good. He will be so very missed by all who knew him.

    Default Not REMO!!

    This is awful news!

    My friend Remo, gone? No, it can't be! No more kidding around with him about his daily regimen of winter meds, once his Corvette was garaged for the season. No more boasts about Quicksilver is the fastest color for Corvettes, and he was only only helping his Corvette's color out with that Lingenfelter upgrade.

    One of the best Corvette folks I've met, always capable of making anyone smile, chuckle and generally not take themselves too seriously. He will indeed be missed.

    First Jane Ann, now Remo. Everyone, we've lost too many good people this year. I want all of you to stop aging, right now!

    My pal Remo was diagnosed with diabetes when he was ten. I didn't know until about a year ago.
    The fact that he lived to 66 is a testament to how well he took care of himself. Diabetes is a
    killer and Bob's downhill slide started over a year ago. Two weeks ago with his body shutting down, he had enough and chose hospice. His son Brian from San Diego spent the last two weeks by his bedside and was with Bob during his last conscious hrs last Friday before falling asleep forever. However, at Remo's request, Brian made 3 trips daily in Quicksilver to McDonalds. Remo needed his fixes of apple pies, LARGE diet Cokes and cookies up until the day he fell asleep. Remo, Paula, my wife Dawn and I had many great times together.

    You are already missed, my brother.
    Godspeed.

    In a couple of weeks, Bob Williams (Nut) and I will drive and deliver Quicksilver to it's new home
    in San Diego. One of Remo's last requests was to sign his Vette over to Brian.

    Common sense is like deodorant. The folks who need it most never seem to use it and there's no polite way to tell them.

    Only met Remo and Guy once, at the CF in Colorado Springs. I enjoyed their daily update of their trip to Colorado, Guy And Remo's great adventure. Remo was extremely open to making friends with whomever he met, especially if you drove a vette. Not only have we lost Jane Ann and Remo, but my Corvette Club lost a member about 3 weeks ago; all have left us much too young, but blessed us by being our friends.
