Neil Kolby (Jeepster) - 12/07/13 01:16 AM

On Monday, Dec. 2nd, Neil Kolby (Jeepster) Passed away from a 8 month battle with cancer.

We met at the BMW So. Cal Coffee Klatch meeting which we both found on this BMW SportTouring forum. He and I learned that we had much in common and began riding together and shooting at the gun range.

A quiet, clever, gentle, man, he will be missed by all that knew him.

RIP ... Ride well dear friend.

Sam, I am so very sorry to learn this, but thank you for letting us know. My sympathy to all who knew Neil. It's heartbreaking to know how fast we can lose one another.

His last post, 4/19/13, consisted of this:

Thinking about it today and I remember meeting him down in Little Switzerland at the UN. Anybody got a picture of Neil?

That sucks
Friends are hard to find and none of us can afford to lose even one.
Sorry to hear of the loss of your riding and shooting friend.

He will be missed... frown

I remember coming to one Koffee Klatch and Neil looking up at me and saying, "Hello Mr Affable. How are ya?"

The thing was... he meant it.

Prayers sent for his family and those close to him.

I don't recall if I met Neil prior to my 5-yr hiatus in WA, but I did meet him as I reconnected back through the SoCal Koffee Klatch. I learned he was ill, but his passing came so quickly after the last time I saw him. I'm sorry I didn't have the time to get to know him better. I think I would have been better for it.

Rest in Peace, Neil.
