Thanks for posting the info regarding BENGAL4's passing away. I too remember his posts here. 60 is just way too young.

Once again, Georgia Fieros has lost a treasured member. GrannyLinda, wife of TopNotch had been hospitalized for more than a week and passed away last night. She was a strong supporter of the Georgia Fiero Club and it's activities. Through the years, she has served as Secretary/Treasurer and a member of the Board of Directors.

Quoting TopNotch on the Georgia Fieros Forum:

Last night my beautiful wife Linda passed away.
She was the bravest woman I knew. She was in constant pain from severe rheumatoid arthritis but never complained. She was loving and kind to all and generous to anyone who needed her help.
She always wanted to be a part of whatever I did, so when I joined this club, she came along too, even though she couldn't have driven a Fiero even if she wanted to. She not only attended nearly every meeting but served as secretary/treasurer much of our time in the club.
And when she saw the yellow T-top Fiero I now drive on eBay, it was she who made the winning bid.

So sorry to read this. I also need to share the loss of MAFOA member, Scott Manger. Scott was a longtime Fiero owner and most recently had a beautiful chocolate brown 87GT. His widow, Tiff, is keeping the car and brought it to Carlisle in his memory. She plans to participate in Fiero events moving forward which will help us remember Scott.

This is a sad story and my heart goes out the the Manger family but there is something that also brings hope. Didn't know Scott and Tiffany real well but it was great that she showed up in her husbands memory with a Fiero and won an award. The fact that she will remain active in the club is great news. There are other MAFOA members (including myself) that have experienced similar loss and I am certain that MAFOA and the Fiero family of folks will always make her feel welcome and make her membership worthwhile.

Hi there. This is Tiffany, Scott Manger's wife. Thank you for the kind words. When I met Scott I hardly knew a thing about fieros. (I still kinda don't lol) I had never even heard of or seen a fastback or mera. It brought me such joy going for cruises with him and watching him talk about his car to people that I felt I had to keep it. I still have a ton to learn since I'm pretty car illiterate in general and I sometimes have a hard time answering fiero questions when I have his car out so I felt I needed to join the club so I could meet new people and network for when I may need assistance

I am so sorry for you loss. There are certainly many people in your local club I am sure that will help in any way that they can. We that are farther away will be glad to answer any questions that you may have. If there is one thing I have learned since becoming a part of this community, is that you will never find a nicer group of people. I consider quite a few people I have met on here extended family now. If there is ever anything you are uncertain of, just post a new topic here in General chat.

I just read the news about dratts. I had no idea he was ill. That is sad.
I liked him. He was always civil and kept an open mind.
RIP

Wow! It was only a month ago that he reported to the forum that he had cancer and had to sell his collection. My sincerest condolences to the family for their loss. It sounds like part of his legacy will be the collection of Fieros that he left his family with. The guy was only 72.

Donald Duane Ratts, 77

Donald Duane Ratts, 77, died on Sunday, Sept. 24, 2018, in Post Falls, Idaho. He was born in Pinehurst, Idaho to Herbert and Lillian Ratts on Jan. 22, 1941. He joined his older brother, Dave and was followed by his younger brother, Larry and his sister, Judy (Lagerquist).

Donald joined the U.S. Navy in 1958 and served until 1963; then he joined the Reserves. He married Janice Boley in 1963 and had four children, Becky Moore of Niece, Calif., Casey Ratts of Cobb Mountain, Calif., Robert Valentino of Petaluma, Calif., and Stephanie Johnson of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.

He is survived by his brother, Larry Ratts; his four children; nine nieces and nephews; eight grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

A celebration of his life was held Thursday, Sept. 27, 2018.

“The world lost a true original early this morning. My mom’s brother and my Uncle Don lived life his way. To most on the outside it may have seemed like ‘What is this guy thinking?’ But I don’t think I ever saw him without a smile and the mischievous sparkle in his eyes. He was truly someone, no matter the differences in your beliefs, you knew he still cared about you and considered you a friend. No doubt you could always count on an interesting conversation in his company. I will miss him, as I know many others will as well. Thanks for the memories. Love you Uncle Don Ratts.” — Brian Lagerquist

So many familiar names in this thread, so many leaving us.
It awaits each and all of us but that doesn't make it any easier to bear.
Rest in peace each.

Still visit PFF occasionally, haven't checked this thread for awhile. Terribly bummed to read some of the names listed here.

RIP, Fiero Buddies (and spouses)
