“The Kyle” was all about the Glamis life, and you could find him there every free weekend he had. He loved bringing new people out and teaching them to enjoy the dunes as well. He was always about helping others, and making sure they had the best time possible. His friends and family would tell you he was most at home when he was ripping around the big bowls, or launching down Olds. He was a long standing member of ASA, and preserving the world’s greatest play ground is something he was so passionate about. His family kindly requests that donations be made in his memory to ASA so that everyone can continue to “Rip It Up, and Rock On!”
There is a light within a person of light and it lights up the whole universe. If it does not shine, there is darkness.”
Roger loved any kind of off-roading: Glamis in the autumn and winter, Baja Mexico in the spring, Yucca Valley in the summer. He began riding as a teenager and continued throughout his life. Surrounded by friends who love Glamis he spent every New Year’s there and sometimes Thanksgiving. He raced in the NORRA twice in recent years and many times going back to the 1980s. Roger was the friendliest, happiest person everyone knew. He worked at PCI Race Radios for the past five years as their top sales person and go-to man for technical advice for customers. Before that he was with AvComm, where he also sold communications systems for off-roaders. Roger is missed by so many friends and by his family. He loved life and lived it to the fullest. If you see #RideForRoger on bikes or trucks or buggies, this is the Roger they are commemorating.
Here is a video he made with his GoPro:

Stefanie was from Peoria, AZ but loved Glamis and practically grew up there. She was one heck of a rider who could “out-ride” her older brother and his friends. She taught many family members how to ride and was a good steward of the land by picking up trash whenever she saw it. To Stefanie, Glamis was the “happiest place on earth.” Her family requests that donations be made to the ASA in her memory in order to keep the riding areas open for everyone to enjoy as much as Stefanie did.
