    Craig Walsh (CW member 'Craigos')

    Hey guys,

    Was just over at Craig's Facebook page tonight to see what the big fella was up too as I hadn't heard from him for a while and found out some devastating news. It appears he was hit by a car out riding on the 11th of February and has passed away.

    Just shattering, met up with Craig on the Gold Coast a couple of years back and he was truly a lovely bloke.

    R.I.P mate, wish I'd have caught up with you again recently.
    R.I.P Craigos, you were a champion bloke. One of the best

    Nooooooooooooooooo

    Oh **** no. No no no no.

    I met him last year in Sydney when he was on his way back from a trip. This is awful news. Oh ****.

    ****. Can't believe this. Vale Craigos. A good man. We laughed with him and at him too.

    RIP...

    To his friends and family

    ****ing hell that's terrible.

    Was thinking the other day that I hadn't seen him in ages.

    Met with him and Richard a few years back when he visited the UK, was a very friendly, softly spoken and engaging guy.

    Really saddened by this. Absolutely horrid news.

    Ha, funnily enough, his exchanges with you F00lins are probably some of my fondest memories of him actually.

    That is completely awful news. He seemed like such a nice, caring bloke who didn't take himself too seriously.

    RIP Craigos you will be missed.

    Saw this on his FB too, incredibly sad news. Sickening feeling how it happened as a fellow road warrior too.

    I'm very sad to hear this; he was one of my favs on here. Seemed like such a genuine, caring and friendly person.

    RIP mate.

    I couldn't believe it when I saw it. Had to read it three times to make sure I wasn't getting confused and it was actually someone else.

    This is shocking news. Unbelievable. I only knew him online, and he was such a friendly and champion guy. As Burgey says, laughed with us, and provided us the laughs. Always hoped he'd be back on CW from his self-imposed exile. Devastating news.

    RIP Craig. I'm glad to have known you.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!
