Phil Ridgdill
« on: November 26, 2022, 08:56:59 AM »
I am sad to report long time HSTA/MSTA member Phil Ridgdill of Switzerland, Florida passed away last Tuesday (11/22/22) after a bout with illness. Phil and his wife Carmel were undoubtably the best two up riders I've ever ridden with, it was all I could do to keep up with them when riding the twistie roads in North Carolina!
He will be missed. -JEP-

Oh bummer! You and I were just discussing those two!
He died the same day as Tom Bartels!
