Gwilo was instrumental to the development of Revscene in its early stages and an advocate on behalf of the local car and motorcycle community. His posts were always insightful and he had always been a stand up guy, offering sound advice to young and aspiring riders, and advocating safety through education.
Ezekiel 25:17. The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.
Aww man I was just reading the v-Rod thread the other day and noticed him posting and was thinking he was one of the original RS members before RS was even called RS............ and that I saw him in the summer at one of the Timmy's meets with his bike and I nodded and said hello but felt like I should have stopped to talk to him because I was honestly surprised he was still a part of the scene all these years later... I still remember when he got his Miata custom painted that metallic blue colour oh so many years ago and spending time at auto-cross talking to him about stuff... what a fuckin shame.
This is very sad news. I first met him back in 2001 at a REVscene meet. At the time he had a red cavalier. Later he got a Mazda Miata and drove the hell out of it. I've seen his posts on BCSB more recently. He was a good guy and did a lot in building the community.

What a great guy, and a huge loss for the every community that he was a part of. He was a part of revscene from the beginning and touched many of our lives with his wisdom and humor.
So sad, I have no more words. We'll miss you John.

Never met him or talked to him but pretty sure we were at that same meet way back in the day at Langara prior to the full RS site days. Terrible to hear that a pillar in seemingly many communities passes away..
I partake in some risky activities/power sports but stories like this honestly scare the shit out of my in terms of motor cycles. Been riding off road vehicles all my life and sometimes on a nice summer day would like nothing more than to be on the street with one, but stories like this with an experienced rider definately make me think otherwise.
