Quote:
It is with sadness that the Company announces the death of Capt. Boubacar Fall on Friday July 24, 2007. He was assigned to the STL base and had been with us for 2 Ĺ years. His wife, Peggy and step-child Taylor survive him. A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday August 4, 2007 at the Ritz Carlton from 4 to 6 pm, located at 100 Carondelet Plaza, St. Louis, MO 63105. Our sincere condolences go out to Mrs. Fall and all of Capt. Fallís family.
CHQ Captain. I don't know why he has passed.

yeh, captain was talking to me about it on this last trip...If you ever find someone who says motorcycles aren't dangerous...think again. I know a lot of us ride them, just want to say, be careful out there fellas.

I think about it everytime I'm hitting a blind-curve or sketchy intersection on my Bike...seeing myself splattered on the pavement in my mind is sobering enough to fully-respect the danger...

Sadness for sure...condolences to his wife and stepchild.

He was at Parks as an instructor until about 2002 or 2003. I'm not sure if he went to school there. He was there for quite a while because of 9/11. Boubacar was a great guy. Super friendly, usually had a smile on his face.
