We lost a long time member of West Coast Fiero's today Henry Doerksen. He was a founding member of West Coast Fiero’s and was not only a member but a dear friend for the past 17 years. He was active in the club since 98 until last month when his health had taken a turn for the worse He was always the most cheerful and happy person at every meeting. Lisa and I considered him a dear friend. He treated out children as his own. Arianna and Erica loved him like an uncle. He had a number of Fiero’s over the years, but his baby was his Gold 86GT that he had for the majority of time that I knew him. It was like new in and out. He only gave up the car after a serious accident where he was hit and it totaled the car out.

He will be dearly missed. Henry may you find the great highway in the sky to cruise.

I spoke to Henry’s wife and there will be a celebration of life for Henry, dates will be made available soon and I’ll post them up here.

I'm very sorry to hear about Henry. He was a soft-spoken, kind and gentle man.

I remembered this post in John Carlo's thread from last July. It's now rather sobering to read John's words under the photo.

Time is running out for both of us so Henry and I are having fun



I'm glad to hear that Henry at least continued to have fun until close to the end.

RIP
