    Remembering Lektro

    On November 9th Michael Allen aka Lektro passed away. He was 63. Michael had a stroke about a year ago. He maintained his career and hobbies while battling health issues. He was an avid RC fan, finding most enjoyment building and fabricating very creative vehicles. He and I would communicate fairly regularly, bouncing ideas from one to another. For those who had dealings with him, through the forum or other means, knew he was a kind knowledgeable person. He was not afraid to ask questions, or give his opinion.
    Michael has two daughters and a son, as well as at least one grandchild.
    With all his health concerns, never once complained to me. He was a genuinely good person. He will be missed by many people.
    I would like on Lektroís behalf, ask each one of you, and myself, to be kind to one another, it will honor his spirit. Donít wait for tomorrow, itís not promised.

    Thank you for the information. To me he was always a genuine, thoughtful, kind, respectful, helpful, considerate soul.

    The world is diminished. Best wishes to those he was forced to leave behind.

    Hey Lektro, your going to be missed by a lot of people. I'm going to miss our chats and watching you build your rigs. I know you had a love for music and this just seemed to fit. Condolences go out to all his friends and family.

    That is very sad news.
    All my dealings with him revealed him to be a lovely bloke with a wicked sense of humour.
    My condolences to his family and friends.
    R.I.P. Lektro.

    Lektro you will be missed. He was always super helpful with advice and his builds were always top-notch quality. It is super sad to hear that he is gone and it was a huge shock for me to read this. Rest In peace

    OMG....I hate to be this late hearing this. He was a GREAT guy, and we talked almost as much in PM as we did on the Slash4x4 forum. We last talked the end of October, and he said he was going in the hospital for a few days and would talk to me when he got out. I know I haven't heard from him in a while, but thought he was just taking some extra time to recover. Had no idea he had passed. That is so sad.

    I just happened to see a post today mentioning the "late" lektro...and couldn't believe this was the same person.

    I know he will be missed by myself, and everyone that crossed his path. Prayers to his family.

    RIP Lektro!!

    That was the "late great Lektro!"

    He will be (and is) missed.
