My father Roger passed away last week at 85. He owned his roadster since 1952 and began restoring it in about 1960. He bought his BCA membership from Greg F. At the Long Beach swap meet at the very beginning. We got his car finished up last year. Many of you may have seen it in Oklahoma. It was the trip of a lifetime for him and he couldn’t be more proud of seeing his car at a BCA show. Special thanks go to Cindy Livingston and Pete Phillips for all they did to make this special for him.

Same reflection as Mark. We enjoyed the friendship of you and your father while on that tour. It was an honor to speak with him again at the Oklahoma meet and share the stories of him and the Buick.

 Our deepest Sympathies:

Thank you everyone. Having his car there was awesome for him. This afternoon his grandson drove the car with myself in the co pilot seat and we picked dad up at the funeral home. We got him in a box that fit perfectly in the golf bag door and took him home with a stop at the local pub we frequented while he lived. He would have expected no less. When they realized who was there the veterans stood and honored him as we placed him on the bar and hoisted one in his memory.
