Lost another great one....

I know when I get text messages or calls after midnight that it usually is not good news and today I did receive some bad news.

A friend of mine I found out was killed on his scooter last night driving home.

He was hit by a driver making a left hand turn and he was from what I heard instantly taken.

I known Vic back in my early Mod clubbing days. He was always this very nice fun loving guy who just had the passion and soul for dancing. I remember the first time I saw him he was on stage cutting a rug to some 60's music and I was just like WOW that guy is a fantastic dancer. He was very popular and well liked by many. I used to have the biggest crush on him. I am so sad to hear this unfortunate news about him. He was married...no kids I believe...a newlywed really.
I remember him taking about his still they had once and the homemade Vodka he would make. I used to run into him all the time almost every time I was in Hollywood at a restaurant,exhibit,concerts,clubs, scooter rallies. I will miss seeing him around.

Cafe Blue reunion. This is where you would usually find Vic...dancing on stage
Great guy...I am so saddened and in shock. His family is in my prayers.
REST IN PEACE VIC.

I'm so sorry Iris, I remember seeing these pics a while back ago. So young he was... it's so unfortuante. We have to remember to watch out for bikes on the road.

Yeah..It makes me so nervous that Gabe rides his scooter everyday! I always remind him watch for other drivers and ALWAYS slow down at intersections. The real sad thing too from the report is that his family was following behind him in the car when the collision happened.

I really sorry to hear about this...how awful for the family to see this happen. I can't imagine the pain they must be in.

Yeah Amy! I remember you and I would dance with Him and Mike (we used to call Mike the smelly guy cause he always smelled like colonge (i guess smelly in a good way) at Cafe bleu. I had theee hugest crush on Vic. It is such a huge bummer......I saw him last at the Specials concert a few months ago.
