NorCal MINIs founder Eamon Kerley passes away

(from NorCal MINIs member announcements)

Dear NorCal MINIs Members,
I’m so sorry to tell you that one of our club founder – Eamon Kerley passed away on Saturday (May 12th) from a massive heart attack. He was on the go-kart track when it happened. Eamon was a good friend and was always there to help. He will be missed. The memorial will be on this Friday (May 18th) at 11am at the Fry Memorial Chapel, 550 S Central Ave, Tracy, CA.
If anyone would like to go as a group, we will meet in Pleasanton in the McDonalds parking lot at I-580 and Santa Rita (just east of intersection) 10am.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Eamon’s family.
NorCal MINIs

Eamon will be sorely missed. I remember glimpsing his distinctive smirk that seemed to non-verbally say “we’re motoring” to you — with a gleam in his eye, talking to everyone about their MINIs, he was unpretentious and easy to approach, and left you feeling touched by a striking passion, as if your world view suddenly got bigger and more interesting.

Miniology expresses our sympathy to NorCal MINIs and his family for their loss. The club is survived by organizer Carol W., run master Larry P., and webguy Dennis F.
