Default R.I.P. Vic Edelbrock Jr.

Maybe some of you are waking up tp the the news on the passing of
Vic Edelbrock Jr....I found this message on the Edelbrock Facebook page..

"It's with deep sadness that we announce the untimely death of our visionary and leader Vic Edelbrock Jr. Vic passed away this evening from complications following a recent cold. His passing was peaceful and in the company of his closest friends and family. The Edelbrock Fun Team sends their deepest condolences to his family and will always hold him in our hearts."

I was able to talk to him and have him sign an Edelbrock cap at Route 66 about 5 years ago and he was a very hospitable to the crowd.

I respect him and his company and the way in which he ran it.

He loved his fishing trips to British Columbia, I know a number of guides who worked with him and his family on his trips. A real gentleman in all aspects of life.
The photos of his yacht were taken near Vancouver Island.
