Default Brian G Tilton (Caveman1959) - June 10, 1959 - April 17, 2014

It is with much sadness that I'm making this post that Brian G. Tilton (Caveman1959) passed away on April 17, 2014.

Brian's father called me today to let me know that Brian had passed after being unconscious for more than a week after an auto accident that occurred on Saturday, April 5, 2014. Brian feel asleep while driving his 80 and sustained head injuries that proved fatal.

Brian camped next to me last year at Cruise Moab and everytime I spoke with him, he was just so "giddy" about being able to wheel his 80 around Moab. He was like a kid out experiencing something new that just had him so excited that he didn't quite know how to control himself.

At the last meeting, Brian introduced me to his father, who was planning to to attend Cruise Moab 2014 with him this year. He was again so excited to be going to CM 2014 and to have his father going with him.

A Memorial Service will be held Saturday April 26 at 11:00 AM at the Faith Lutheran Church, 17701 W. 16th Avenue, Golden, CO. I am hopeful that some Rising Sun members will be able to attend as Brian was so passionate about driving his 80 and so excited about the possibilities of what his recent affiliation with Rising Sun might help him accomplish with his rig.

Terrible news, Dave. Thoughts, prayers and positive vibes for his family during this, the most difficult time in their lives.

Very sorry to read this today. I didn't know Brian but I know the loss his family is feeling. If it would be appropriate for me to help represent RS and the 80-series set at the memorial service, I'll be glad to do so.
