I learned a handful days ago and I figured you all should know.  (1967bolens collector) Sam passed away on the first of January in a ATV crash he was only 25.    My condolences go out to his family in these hard times.

Was very sad to read about his tragic passing, He was one of the future collectors to carry on the hobby.

Although we never met face to face I consider him a friend and always enjoyed seeing his great collection he was able to build up.

just goes to show you how unpredictable life is and to enjoy everyday like its your last.

Sad to hear, at that age we do stupid stuff because we feel like we're bullet proof. Not saying he did, just a general observation. Godspeed to him.
