My friend-the guy who told me about this place hasn't been around for months. About a year ago he lost his wife and his last posts here were in October. Yesterday, I learned from another guy in the sport where I first met OldReliable that he had taken up biking after he lost his wife. Sadly, a couple days ago he was struck and killed by a teenage driver. Its unclear if there was any fault-but he is gone. He was a good guy and well liked by those who knew him. I will miss him.
 

What if...?

That's a shame, and a sad way to go. Sorry TD.

Thanks, we only saw each other at tournaments-we'd often judge together or I'd be competing and he'd be a judge but we used to PM each other pretty regularly.

Sorry to hear it, TD. I'm not familiar with his posts, but still a sad story. I have plenty of friends that bike on-road and that's, of course, their major concern. I'm sure he was a great person and will be missed.

Sorry to hear about that. Super smart guy and reasonable to a fault.

I'm sorry to hear this. He offered some great insight in the econ forum and just came off as a really nice guy.

I only talked to OldReliable once, but it was obvious from our short talk he was a highly intelligent individual. I regret not talking to more when I had the chance, but i enjoyed reading his posts and found them to be informative and well thought out. RIP OldReliable67.

OldReliable67 was a class act here at DP. While we agreed on much and disagreed on even more, the dude was always respectful as well as he was engaging. He will be missed.

I (like the others who have posted) am very sorry to hear this. He added a great deal of knowledge, intelligence, and reasonableness to the threads in which he participated. I tangled with him a few times, and always came out better for it. He was a rare poster, and I'm sure he was a good man.
