Its sad to hear something like this happening to bros of MSM...
From all the condolenses made from everyone, he must be
someone very treasurable. Lets keep alert on the situation
and hopefully members will be able to pay their proper respect
when more details are available.

With due respect, lets pray and hope that this incident is not GPS related.

My sincere sympathy to his family on his passing.

I have not had the good fortune of personally meeting him and from all the good things I heard about him, I earnestly believe that he must be a great guy to be with. Any death is always something hard to accept and brings pain to all those around him; family members and friends alike. My deepest sympathy and heartfelt condolences to his family and friends who know him.

RIP Rickvon. I am really shocked and sad to hear of the passing of a free spirit like you.

Here is a photo extracted from the KL Sentral GG thread in April 2007.

Bro rickvon is the one on the left standing.

Even though I only met Ricky once, but I'm feeling like I have lost a really really close friend.
Think about the first time I met him, it was only 4 months ago.
He is that kind of cheerful guy that can be anyone's best friend. We chatted on MSN and he always tell me where to go for nice food. He mentioned all the time about his annual trip to Thailand. I knew that he was looking forward for it...

I'm really lost for words. This is too sad to be accepted...

Ricky,

I'll never forget your laughter and your passion for superbikes.
Rest in peace.

Joanne

Once a while, you will meet someone special and Ricky is just one of them. Many of us who knows him, know about his passion for superbikes, photography, travel, etc. I know he looks at things differently but I wish I know more.

I'm glad that I've met him and he will always be remembered.

Cheers, Kelvin.

oh God, this is really sad. I've been away and only tonight just opened MSM.

Bro rickvon was a nice person whom I had the pleasure to meet once but I knew right away he was a warm person.

May the Almighty let him rest in peace.
