Really sad.....my condolonces to his loved ones.

I remember Rickvon as both a productive contributor and also someone who had lighted up our forum. The word 'wawa' is made popular by bro Ricky. Had the pleasure of meeting him once. I will miss him.

Oh no! This is so shocking and saddening. A free spirit he was and what a personality. I shall miss him but anytime one of us mentions the word "wawa", we will remember him.

May God grant him eternal rest.

My condolences to his family and loved ones.... I remember him thru his posting in the old forum with the famous 'wawa' and his love for big bikes.

Truly sorry to hear of rickvon's passing. He was probably on his annual Chiangmai ride when the mishap happened, see this thread:
viewtopic.php?f=47&t=1821

I think this is his very last posting here:

I read about all that "conveyance form" problems in the net which other travellers have encountered too but we've just managed to get in touch with one fellow biker who makes regular trips to Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam and he has given us a contact in Thailand who can take care of all this red-tape for us. However, and sad to say, at this juncture the ride may have to be indefinitely postponed. I will know for sure by tomorrow but this is a huge disappointment for me. Still, I guess everything happens for a reason. In the meantime my annual "pilgrimage" to Chiangmai (and Bangkok) trip goes on as planned so.. at least that's something to cheer about! :D Will post pics of that trip when I get back altho it's obviously not going to be as exciting as Siem Reap and Angkor Wat.


After this posting, I asked same day, when he'd be in Chiangmai, as I was heading that way too. He never replied.

Anyway, one thing I remember well was his reason for buying the Nikon D80 - he enjoyed my Canon 400D pix posted here, esp. the ones with wa-wa's facing the other way. :)

Rest-in-peace, bro, though we never met in person, I know you were/are a swell guy.

:shock: This is really shocking news to the community here. :shock: Even though I did not have the opportunity to meet him personally, I certainly enjoyed his comradeships in the forum in the early days of my joining malsingmaps.

My condolences to his loved ones. :(

May our Bro RickVon rest in peace. May his family find strength to get
thru this difficult time. Let us remind ourselves how precious life is and
to live a meaningful life.

Sad day for MSM. Condolences to the family. We've lost a highly valued member and a friend to all in this forum.

Perhaps a tribute to him is in order...maybe a posthumous Hall of Fame kind of thing in the Wiki? At least he will always be here... Wadya all think?
