It is with much sadness and regret that I type this. At around 11:15 today John Katsanis lost his battle with Cancer and slipped peacfully away, to be with his beloved soul mate Tina. Chopper fought the mongrel disease to his last breath and was looking forward to The Rumble in a couple of weeks. There's so much I want to say about John, but right now I'm a little stuck for words and there's much needs to be done to help the boys close out his time with us. Suffice to say John was a great and loyal friend. A man who lived the hot rodding life with a passion that was sometimes beyond comprehension, a man who just wanted everybody else to appreciate and enjoy the same things he loved and thus a man who worked tirelessly to try and achive that. The hot rodding community will not be the same without him as he has had a profound effect on many of our lives even if we don't know it. Condolences to Dean, Luke, Tom and Damon.
