My condolences on the loss of your dad. That's the saddest news I've gotten in years. His absence is a great loss to the forum as well, and to everyone who knew him, no doubt. His knowledge is irreplaceable, and he helped hundreds and hundreds, if not thousands, of people on the forum. He answered the same questions over and over and showed more patience than anyone I know.

I am so sorry to hear this RIP Old polaris tech. My condolences to all his family. He will be deeply missed as he had so much knowledge on polaris machines that he shared willingly. Ride long and hard in the afterlife my friend, and may you have no more repairs to take care of. And thanks for all your wisdom.

I never had the pleasure of meeting him, but if this forum is any indication he lived with a servant's heart and enjoyed helping others. Just about every post on here where someone needed help, he would reply with great advise. I'm sorry for your loss, and I will be praying for your family.

So sorry for your loss, he was a great inspiration to all of us that tried to do our own repairs. He seemed to have that gift of mechanical knowledge! His contribution to this forum and this sport is immeasurable, and he will certainly be missed! RIP OPT !!

Rest easy OPT. The Polaris rider community has lost one of its greatest assets. Your knowledge, insights and quick wit will be sorely missed.
