Default Loss of a Volksrodder.

We have lost a Volksrod brother, Chopper03 (Mike Sands). I had only met him a few times but was always nice. He was a member of a local VW club, The Knox Volks Motor Club.
From their Facebook page. KVMC family, we lost one of our members yesterday. Mike Sands has passed away. Please keep Debra Harris Sands and the family in your prayers. Mike was a wonderful man who loved ihs VDubs and had a heart of gold and envious welding skills. He taught a few of our member how to weld. He will be sorely missed.

RIP Chopper03.

Tim
