  • Gary Conboy

    Gary Conboy passed away on June 6th. He took sick upon meet-up with Marty A in Kane, PA. They were planning to attend XS East in West Virginia. I'm sorry I don't remember his handle on this forum. He was always one of the people who showed up.

            Gary was the one who showed up at the Brattleboro rally in 2009 with not one, but two bikes in the back of his minivan. His XS and his son, Aaron’s, 550.

            He was good fun at the rally and just one of those nice guys that was fun to be around.

            He was going to drive Marty and Sally to this year's rally, but at Marty A's was feeling sick. He turned around to drive back to Toronto, checked himself in to the hospital, and went downhill form there.

              Simply by seeing what others have said, and my forum experience I know this fellow was a valued member of our little group. I offer my condolences to his family and friends and all who knew him. RIP
