That's terrible news. I had no idea he was even in ill health, much less fighting for his life. Stopping at his place was always one of the highlights of our R Gruppe drives in the Hood River area. RIP, Stephen.

Just heard about this the other day...very very sad.
Our tour group visited Stephen many many times in Mosier, and even managed to get him out for a drive with us on occasion.
Good times.
RIP Steve.

RIP.

Loss of one of the good ones. My wife and I stopped by his place this Spring. It was closed but a luck would have it, he was following us. Got a tour of the shop and he told me he was closing the shop due to his illness.
