Gone too soon

.
It be is with extreme sadness and a heavy heart that I let you know that one of our members “SubaRyu” Ryu Asada, avid SVX enthusiast and Hot Wheels Designer, has lost a 4 year battle with Stage IV colorectal cancer.

Died yesterday at 42.

Re: Gone too soon

I did now know Ryu, but I read through his entire Instagram when I first learned about him and he was a true enthusiast. And, from what I read and heard from other, a kind and generous person. RIP.
