Yogi has passed on, I got the text from his wife Friday, that he had suffered heart failure.
Memorial service was Saturday, November 10th, at their house in the woods. I was able to go to their house today to pay my respects.
This is a great loss, and the Sentra community has lost one if its true heroes.
Yogi could always be counted on with any tire or rim fitment question anyone may ask.
He was passionate about his racing, and his car.
He bought his car new in 2004 and IIRC one of the first things he did with it was hit the track.
To hear him talk, he did not win much, but he still loved the track.
I have had the pleasure of meeting and having lunch several times, and he went on two tail of the dragon cruises that we set up. The second of which he stayed in the house we rented for 3 days.
He was a very positive man, I have never heard him utter a cross word, never met a stranger he would not talk to, and always had a smile that was hard to see behind his beard.
Please consider helping his family out.
I have set up a GoFundMe to help raise money for his family. All money raised will go to his wife, Aimee.
