Since Paul Illick's (DBCooper) passing last November caught many of us off guard this week...his obituary is below. RIP Paul.

Mr. Paul Stephen Illick; August 26, 1950 – November 19, 2017

Paul Stephen Illick, age 67, passed away peacefully in Modesto on November 19, 2017 due to complications arising from a respiratory infection.
Stephen was born in 1950 in Syracuse, New York, to Paul Edward and Jean (Bunch) Illick, and was raised in Modesto, CA. Stephen was a businessman who traveled the world, living in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Vallejo, CA, Morrisville, PA, Houston, TX, and returning to Modesto, CA to be close to family in his retirement years.

Stephen was married to Regina (Dal Prete) Illick in Sao Paulo, Brazil and raised two sons, Thomas of Santa Cruz, CA and Andre of Houston, TX. Stephen is also survived by two grandchildren, Abigail and Oliver Illick, and two sisters, Jeanette Aglipay and Zandra Nicolle.

A celebration of life will be planned for a later date. Any memorial contributions should be made to the ACLU or Sierra Club in Paul's name, or an organization of your choice focused on equality or conservation. Stephen was generous, loving, funny, witty and just an amazing and rare type of person filled with genuine compassion for all. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

Added some thread highlighting so it stands out more. I'll let this run in the garage for a few days and then move it to the nailed section above.

It was clear. I was pointing out that Jeff should be added.

I didn't know everyone on a face to face basis. Although it felt like it as we know them through the world. Amazing how much you get to know people through the web though. Our community is one of the best around. I appreciate it & all that have contributed through the years. Especially those that have left us (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wub.gif)

I'll leave a little story about JP. Met him pre 914world. Went up to a BBQ at his place to check out the Shitbox (IMG:style_emoticons/default/happy11.gif) . He had these wooden Boxes he built he would set his car on. Looked a bit funny but man those were solid & handled the weight no problem. JP was one of those "crotchity" older guys. Wonderful guy who spoke his mind. Might rub some the wrong way but wasn't a prick. He just knew what he knew (IMG:style_emoticons/default/shades.gif) . He was super helpful to me. Even helped me partout a burned up 2.7 I had picked up. Bought a burned up six conversion. Pulled the motor & took it up to JP. The motor was pretty well shot from the fire. I was still amazed when we pulled it apart how many good parts he saved. We just split what we sold 50/50 with JP doing the selling. Since he knew those motor's like the back of his hand. Worked out great & we both got a little coin. Better spent was the time pulling that motor apart with JP. When he wasn't smoking a heater. He was happy to explain everything about the motor. I learned a lot from JP that day. JP was always helpful on the world as well. I always pictured him & CapnCrusty together at some event (IMG:style_emoticons/default/lol-2.gif) . I swear fireworks would have went off as they gave their opinions on how to do things. The back & forth would have been a treat to be a part of. I would have loved every minute of it

Jeff Stroud.

This photo was taken the day that Jeff purchased his project car from me years ago. Jeff grew up in the Bay Area and one of his high school buddies dad had a white 914. Some 30 years later Jeff was chasing down another white 914 to rebuilt as he fondly remembered those days of goofing around in a 914 when he was in school. He had not driven a 914 in over 30 years so I let him take my /6 out for a romp when he bought the project car.

A recommendation/consideration to the admins - when we die, perhaps there is some sort of annotation that can be added to our header, pic, or something. Like a black band across our pic, an RIP or some such? I know it is rather superfluous and adds work, and is not of major importance, but this thread has me kind of sentimental given that many were rather close friends, and others were distant friends.

Please add John Williamson aka Otto
Even though he didn't spend a lot of time on 914world, he was a huge asset to 914's in the area and held numerous track records in 914's.
