Wow! That's very sad news! When I saw the thread back, I hoped Wade was doing better, and added some new info. So very sorry for Wade, and his family. Prayers for his family and friends in this sad time.
Yes, me too, I'm heading over to Bend next month and intended to get in touch
with him, and was thinking this thread was him doing some more work on the '55.
I'm really sorry to hear this, as a cancer survivor myself, I have to hope that he did not suffer from this terrible disease!
PS:Printed out ten pix from this thread of Wade's work on this '55 and posted 'em in my shop, using them as an inspiration for me to try to do that level of work. He was a master !!

So sorry to hear of the sad news. I just went over the whole thread and it is just horrible to see such talent gone. My condolences go out to his family and close friends . When I finally get into building my 55 gasser Wades 55 will come to mind so he will not be forgotten. As we all age it is so important to take each day and live to the fullest. I believe for all of us building and enjoying tri five chevies it has such a positive effect on our drive to get the most out of life . What better way to live. God Bless RIP Wade.

So sorry to here this, my prayers to his family. Dam cancer i'm tired of hereing about so many people having cancer.
I absolutely agree with your post Jim if I may , the insidious cancer has been with us now for many many years , stealing lives and drowning families in grief , actually makes me angry no cure has been found !!
And then makes me suspicious as to the reasons no cure has been found ?? To say cancer is a big business that can't afford to have a cure found would be awfully negative and unreasonable wouldn't it ???
Sorry to hear about Wade, My best to his family and friends. Wade And I spoke a few times about parts and fitment issues for my 55 gasser. He was always very nice and willing to share his knowledge and advice. I have lost a couple of close friends and family members to Cancer, I mourn with you. God Bless.
The cancer I had, quite a few years ago now, was considered incurable at the time, and I was given 6 months to live. A buddy told me he was able to get his cancer, the same type as mine, treated by an experimental treatment at the John Wayne Cancer Clinic in Santa Monica, CA. I went there, they put me in this treatment program, a highly experimental treatment involving immunology methods, and it worked! I still get checked every year, but so far, knock on wood!
So they are making progress, but it is a very difficult disease to treat in most cases....
