I find it hard to come up with words in situations like feelings tend to go to surviving family and friends. I didn't know Dr. F that well, but in all honesty, I think we mourn him as a human being moreso because we knew him as opposed to anyone else that meets an untimely demise.

If there is a PayPal donation fund, I'll be glad to contribute if it will help his family.

Always sad when someone dies - doubly so when they are such a great person.

My condolences to his family and friends - RIP.

So sad to hear such terrible news. Even though I never knew him personally, I can tell that he was a truly helpful and kind bloke just by the way he was always willing to help out and how he has made such a mark on those who knew him.
My sincere condolances to his family and friends, keep your heads high and remember the good times.

Very very sad. I can't believe he is gone. I always enjoyed and respected his post and opinions.

I am sure he will be missed by everyone that knew him. A very sad day!

Thank you Dr. F for touching so many lives.

Just logged on after a few days away.

Can't believe it. I feel shocked and sick. It's a very sad thing when this happens to someone you 'know' - even if it is just through reading his posts on an internet forum.

Very sad indeed. Sincere condolences to his family and friends.

Take good care everyone.

Even when its someone you don't know, this kind of news is always hard to hear. I didn't know Dr F, but he sounds like a top bloke and the 6 pages of this thread is a testiment to that.

My thoughts go out to this family.

My heart goes out to his partner, family & friends for such a tragic loss.

I didn't know Dr F very well, but there is no doubting he was, & will continue to be, an important part of this forum & I am grateful for his kindness, humour & contribution.

I will think of these good things when I ride & when I banter with fellow SD'ers.

Not even in portuguese would I find the right words.

I just hope to never see news like this from any of you guys.

These moments bring up the need to pass the maximum amount of knowledge and love and positive vibe for that our lives are to short not to do so. May every and each one of us feel the responsability to continue to participate in this forum with as much enthusiasm as Dr F always showed.

I just found out about this, as I was on a week-long ride.
My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and loved ones.
As I will be unable to attend the wake, I will be raising a pint (and a shot of whiskey) to his memory, here in Arizona.
We miss you, Dr. F,

I too feel very sad to hear of this terrible loss, Tony was somebody who always posted such great stuff on this site, they were always informative and funny.

I can't make the ride out (nurburgring) but will raise a beer to him and think of all of those of you who make it on the 12th.

Terrible news :(

Tony modded my CRG levers and I was so impressed with how helpful he was. I wish the world had more guys like Tony.

RIP Brother.
