Loss of a great Trooper and friend today

FYI fellow Canuks - John Facette ( Welland, ON) from the Facebook group Vstrom Owners Club of Canada passed away suddenly today... we was still out riding a few days ago and this is a sudden tragic shock to his partner Michele and their families. No other details available at this time. John was an incredible guy, a passionate rider, and my friend... he will be missed by many.

It is my understanding he was a member on here, but I don't know what his username was.

I'm glad to read that he had been riding so recently before his passing.

John's Funeral Service will take place this Saturday (Dec. 6th) at 10:00 a.m. @ Cudney's Funeral Home 242 West Main St., Welland
It would be great if we could have a large member turn out - Michele has asked that we wear our riding jackets to the service.
For obvious reasons the Christmas Party will be pushed back a week - details to follow.

Rest In Peace, John

Although I've only met John once, he seemed like a great guy. Far too young to say goodbye. My heart goes out to his family.
