[SA] Jock Rogan's Farewell.

Discussion in 'Other States' started by VTRAffair, Dec 19, 2011.

  1. Jock had played a large part in the lives of quite a few SA riders, through various clubs, and his work with the MRASA and his work in organising the Toy Run. He sadly passed away, and funeral arrangements have now been made. This is taken from the MRASA, just in case any of the SA guys and gals are not aware of the news.

    Our mate Jock Rogan passed away early on the morning of Friday, December 9. He had been in the Intensive Care Unit of the RAH for the last three months and, just yesterday, was moved to the regular ward as he was so much better. Hence it was a great shock to all of us to learn that he was no longer with us, having ridden on this morning at 4am.

    Jock had been a great supporter of the MRASA through his work on the MRA Committee, the SAMRATS and the Toy Run Committee. He was most enthusiastic in his charity work for the MRA through the Ridden-On Ride, the Ride for the Child and the Five Ferries Ride.

    He is pictured above in one of his favourite roles which he was unable to take on this year because of his illness. This is how we would like to remember him.

    Our heartfelt condolences and best wishes are sent to his wife Sue, his family and his many, many friends. All will provide strong support for each other through this sad period of our lives.
