Ratmonkey memorial thread



I am sure many of you know of the loss of one of our mods here on the forum.

I would like to try and dedicate a thread to him. hopefully we can all relate real life stories or memorable situations from here on the forum.

Tyler (Ratmonkey) was my best friend for the last 27 years, that's right I'm only 32, We have been friends since kindergarten. we have all lost something from his passing. Hopefully we can keep his memory alive here on the forum for a long time to come.

Here is a donations thread that i made to help his mother settle some of his financial affairs. if you can spare anything i beg you to help.


rat doing some work on my yj headers.

Hey Mike, I just finished reading through the memorial thread and the announcement thread on jeepforum. I was wondering if you would be so kind as to let everyone know that we read it and we truly appreciate all the kind words and we are just so glad that he was so well liked? Really made me feel good to know it. : ) [Even though I knew it.] And I know Mom feels the same. Hope you guys are all doing OK.

Done, I like that what ever is left over will be used to finish his rig, it's a fitting way to honor a man who gave so much if his time to help others with theirs.

there has not been any idea of pricing as of yet for them.
