    Stephen so sorry for your families loss. Thank you so much for sharing the stories about your Dad, it makes me feel like I knew him a bit, and he is certainly someone that Ian and I would have enjoyed meeting. The guys you dad sought out to talk to here are the same guys Ian enjoys talking with. He reminds me a bit of my Dad who turned 80 this spring. His heart was always in motors but unfortunately my mom ruled with an iron fist and only let him get a boat much later in life. He was not lucky enough to have a son and I waited till 35 to marry, with Ian he finally had a son to share his love of motors with. I will never forget the excitement he had as he helped Ian navigate through the staights of Mackinaw on Lake MI the year we celebrated their 50th anniversary. He was so into it that I had him sit next to Ian in my seat so he could follow the GPS and his chart. True to form my mother and sister would not ride with us, they took the ferry to the island. Unfortunately his knees are so bad that it is dangerous for him to be around docks, he will have knee replacement surgery in Sept ( he kept failing stress tests and just got the OK) hopefully he will get around better, but 80 is getting up there. Sorry to go on about my Dad but I wanted you to know that hearing about your's makes me think about mine, which makes your father's memory grow. Give your mom a big hug and tell her your Dad was a lucky man, she did not make him give up his passion.

    Stephen, You and your family are in our thoughts and our prayers. Your father and I have become good friends over the last few years and I will miss him deeply. If you need anything just give me a call. John 484-883-1390 God Bless.

    I bought a 509 ci motor from Alan back in January and had the chance to "hang"out with him in his garage surrounded by what he, engines, and engines and boats. We talked for hours and shared a ton of stories. The man was a literal encyclopedia of boating and engine building knowledge. What better way to spend a cold and rainy day in January.

    Alan you will be missed...God Speed my friend.

    even though it was way to soon for Mr. jones, there is def something special about where he is now; and providing Him with a knowledgeable motor mind, and a very fast chariot!!!
