Don Stanley AKA Beemerdons

From the AZ Beemers Forum:

It is with ultimate sadness that I must pass this news on to you.

The Heart and Soul of AZ Beemers, Don Stanley, has passed away.

On Monday, he and his son Seth were on an ocean cruise in Mexico and Don was snorkeling when he suffered a heart attack. Obviously, with the circumstances, there are a lot of issues that Don's immediate family will be dealing with. Please keep Seth, Donna, Jean and Marsha in your prayers through this difficult time.

A memorial service is not yet scheduled, I will pass that information along as soon as it is confirmed. Melanie and I plan to host a wake in Don's honor immediately after the service.

As a club, we can discuss a memorial ride.

Don's family will need some help in the coming days and I assume we can count on fellow AZ Beemers to help if needed.

One of the first things I would ask of you, please forward this sad news to Don's many other friends, particularly if someone can post on the FJR, BMW Owners, BMW RA and other forums.

Please contact me if you wish to help or want to discuss. Feel free to post my information on other forums.

Missing my friend.

Re: Don Stanley AKA Beemerdons

Never meet Don in person but we had many good chats & exchanged tips & tech info on the k1600 over the last 4 plus years. He will be missed by many.

RIP Don till we meet again to ride with our savor in heaven.
