Leroy Joppa

The Nasty Boys have lost our leader. From the Modified Healey list:

"Hi guys and gals,

Very sad news. Leroy Joppa just passed away. All that I know right now
is that he died of medical complications. Sue also has cancer and
doesn't yet know Leroy has passed away. Her condition is stable. That
could change once she finds out Leroy has passed away.

The Joppa's are long term members of the AHCA and have been involved in
the growth and viability of the AHCA since 1980. They had been
delegates representing the WI club since they joined in 1980.

The wake for Leroy will take place on Monday at 11:00 AM and funeral
service at noon. It will take place at St. Leonard Catholic Church,
5330 Beech Street, Laona, WI 54541, 715-674-3241.

The Joppa address is P.O. Box 131, Laona, WI 54541-0131.

Please keep the Joppa family in your prayers."

Rick,

Do you have any good closeups of Leroy & his trademark moustache? I thought I had one from one of the V8 Meets, but can't find it. Need one for posterity & remembrance.

I saw that one. Was hoping for a straight on close up, but that will have to do. Thanks!

Thanks for that one, Rick! That is the Leroy & Sue that I will always remember from the British V8 Meets.
