Dr. Robert Hellman, our Chefredakteur

Hi , I got this from a friend
---------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Region Rep,

I am truly saddened to have to tell you of the passing of Dr. Robert Hellman, our Chefredakteur and Editor of the OTL magazine for more than 20 years. After a prolonged illness, Dr. Hellman, age 63, passed away Sunday, March 9, 2008 at his home in Maryland in the company of those he loved. The BMW Riders Association has lost the man that was the foundation and spokesman of our organization for many, many years. No one can dispute he was an advocate for the BMW brand, a man of eloquence and diplomacy both in person and with his pen. The RA will truly miss him, but his wit and charm will live forever in our memories and on the pages of our magazine.


As Region Reps, I am asking you to please pass this information along to your local clubs, dealers and other BMW enthusiasts who may have known Robert. He touched so many in the BMW community that word of his passing will surely ring around the globe. Keep an eye on the RA web site for more information on arrangements.

With sorrowful regards,

Bob Wood
Regions Coordinator

Truly a great loss to the riding community. While I never met him, I read his writings for many years.
