This message is from an LD rider in California. Not sure he had a forum account, but he did have an FJR.

Some may remember Ziggy at WFO-5 in Reno and having helped with getting a bunch of Works Shocks certificates.

He will be missed.


I received word from Carroll Walker that our friend, Frank "Ziggy"
Zigler passed away today after his long fight with cancer.

I was fortunate enough to have visited him last Friday with Lisa
Landry. I can tell you that he thoroughly enjoyed each and every
email that was send to him. As Lisa read them it was clear they
brought back many great memories for him. Thanks to everybody that
sent emails to ZIggy.

I don't have any details for services at this time.

Godspeed Ziggy
