    Jim Jantzen "Alastica" passing

    Many of you have had the privilege to have known this gentleman. He has accompanied me in my CK group the past several years. His son just reported his passing on FB.

    Re: Jim Jantzen "Alastica" passing

    This breaks my heart. He was a good friend of us here over at LetzRoll. We were even talking about bringing him with us to KOH this year since he loved watching and talking about it.

    He was just here Monday AM.

    For those that dont know... He had awesome stories of some cool adventures. He was very into making walking sticks. He made me one just for KOH this next year. He also made me a fun beating stick that I could keep in my truck for my south of the border adventures (he spent some time down there as well)

    He always had a cow bell on the back of his jeep that would drive us nuts when we worked on it

    This is sad to hear. I just met Jim and son at the M&G, we were among the first few to show up, and talked for quite a while, showing me the in's n out's of his rig(including the cowbell). Gave me a lot of insight in short period of time. My condolences to the family.

    Condolences to family and friends. Life is so short and can be gone in an instant.

    Now I can see the picture - saw him Saturday and wheeled with him before. So sad. Super nice gentleman.

    Jim was one of the first members I met and wheeled with!

    Always a handshake and a hug from him!
    Great conversationalist! I'll miss seeing him!
    My prayers are with his son and family!
