Unhappy ***FUCK CANCER*** We lost a fellow Wheeler today

RIP canadian_jeeper aka Victor Jin

He was an avid wheeler and has made friends with many people on both sides of the border in his short 46 years with us. He fought a short and intense battle with Cancer and has left a wonderful wife and amazing young daughter.

Those that have met him will remember him as the short oriental guy with thick glasses that always had a smile on his face and was always willing to lend a hand to anyone. He has been an active participant in the annual Loonie Runs held in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario for many, many years as well as some Drummond Island Invasions and other tours in Michigan.

He was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of cancer in June of this year and was able to spend the majority of his time since the diagnosis with his family and friends beside him right up until the day after Christmas at which time he unselfishly asked to be taken to a local Hospice to ease the workload on his wife and family.

He was an amazing man, and incredible father, loving husband and selfless friend...

All I ask is that you all take a moment to hug your wife and kids, take a minute and call those friends that you have been too busy to talk to. Life is way too short not to enjoy the time and the people in our lives while we are here!


RIP Vic, may the rocks be endless, the gas tank always full!! Wheel on my friend... you will be missed!

Thanks for posting this Jamie. I met Victor a half dozen times and he was always a friendly, fun loving, energetic guy. He was just happy to be on the trails. I had seen it posted that he was sick but didn't know till today why. Wow, 46 is just too young.
You guys up there lost a good guy.

May he rest in peace.
