In Memory of Rob (turbo)

Postby bobbinsjob on Sat Dec 29, 2007 12:58 pm

As you may well be aware, one of our members, Turbo, was recently killed in an RTA whilst returning from collecting his new Frontera, by a drunk driver. Rob had signed up for the World Record Attempt long before he even had a Fronty and was so excited about owning one as you can read in his posts.

Seeing as the GWRA was sort of my baby to start with, I would like to dedicate it to the memory of Rob and when any future publicity or paperwork is raised about the GWRA, a memorial to Rob will be included.

Many Thanks,

1996 2.8 SWB called VIPER

Wel Im in favour of any member being remebered,

Just want to say, my heart and soul goes out to his family.

Its sad, that more people say happy birthday, than send out a condolence, and the response to this topic, thread what ever you want to call it, has been very poor.

I should have added this on here a week or two ago :
From Robs family :oops: :oops: sorry Ian i forgot to :oops:
They have said a very big thank you for dedicate it to the memory of Rob it is a very very kind thing to do.

And that Rob himself had said what a great forum this was with lot of very helpful & friendly people always willing to help another frontera owner out of a spot of bother however big or small there trouble was and he could not wait to meet other members .

Sorry once again that i had not added this before
