Tango (Donald Tucker) passed away earlier this month after a long fight against lung cancer. He maintained an upbeat attitude right to the end. That along with his skills as a fabricator, artist and helpful nature made him a special person.

He had quite a project. Been off site for about a year. Been wondering where he was. RIP Tango

So sorry to hear this! He had an interesting project going. Hope someone takes it over and completes it.
RIP Tango!

How did I miss getting to know Donald? Just visited his flickr account. He was an artist and a diesel guy. One shot showed a Fleetguard filter on the little BT4, mark of one who knows more than most. Whoever is granted the privilege of following up and finishing his Bus project will be one lucky person,

RIP Tango
