  1. Damn, he always had a good comment. Thoughts and prayers to jason and all of Courts freinds and family.
     
  2. Damn Tito, we just talked two days ago. Not sure what it will be like to hit the local events and not see your smiling face and have a bit of a BS session.

    I am proud to have worked with you on tech articles, bs when we saw each other and to have called you a friend! I'll never forget the Bear Hugs that lifted me off the ground

    Godspeed my friend - know well that you will be missed by many

    Sad to hear. I never got to meet him but really enjoyed reading what he wrote over the years and I'd like to think that I learned a bit from it.

    Courtney was someone I always wanted to work with, and I finally got the chance when he fought for me to get hired at StreetTrucks. Even though I knew him for years before, we really got to know each other those four years I was at ST. He was the type of guy who you'd get into a disagreement with, but just couldn't stay mad at him. I'll miss him and I hope his family is okay.

    I don't know what to say. I worked with Courtney for several years, and even though we weren't the closest of friends, he was always someone you could fall into easy conversation with. Just a real genuine, friendly, enthusiastic and energetic guy - and it showed in the work he did. The hot rod community and magazine world will definitely feel his loss. RIP.

    Heard this news yesterday and its still not fully sat in yet and I am still a wreck over it. He was an amazing person that brought out the best in everyone around him. Best kind of guy. Going to miss him.
