    Sad News to share- Wally Piper

    Hi all! It's been a long time since I've been over here, I see that LEPR is still going strong though. Unfortunately, I'm not here to share good news today, but I received a very generic email this morning that our friend Wally Piper passed away on Sunday. I don't have any other information other than what I could glean from a somewhat cryptic post on his FB page from his sister. It appears that Wally was in Grady's ICU as of 12/10 with what appears to be lung cancer. I'm sad that none of us knew, we would have been around to support he and Tricia during this time for sure. If you are interested, here are the details of the service and Tricia's mailing address if you'd like to send her some love and support during this time.

    Services will be held on Saturday at 11 o’clock.
    Hurt Road Baptist Church
    17 Hurt Rd SW, Smyrna, GA 30082
    In case you’d like to send a note:
    Tricia Deckert
    470 Rebecca Lane
    Smyrna GA 30082


    Maybe we shouldn't let all this time pass without reaching out to each other, huh? Sigh....

    God speed Wally. Such a good guy. Did a lot of track days and rides with him. Always willing to help -- clean the track, lead, sweep, whatever you asked.

    RIP

    Anyone else have any photos by chance? Wally's Stepson is putting together a slide show and I'd love to send them over. Just post here or on FB and I'll grab them and share with his family.

    I may have a couple more, but they are on a different computer. I'll also ask another guy who was on the trip who took a ton of photos.

    I pulled pictures from the 2004 trip. I don't have the 2005 trip on this computer. There are on PhotoBucket. Wally is the one in the solid yellow Aerostich suit for identification when he has his helmet on.

    I have them all in high resolution - if anyone wants them I'll be happy to dropbox, google drive or get them to them in some way. I'm trying to make arrangements to attend the service. I have a couple things in the way but am trying to move them.
