Read about it on VeloNews.com...
It was with a heavy heart that I read this earlier today. L.H. "Ronnie" Thomson was a good man, as far as I knew of him. Though I only had the pleasure of speaking with him directly twice, my impression of him was very good, and I've used his seatposts almost exclusively for more than a decade. And while I didn't know him well, based on my interactions with the man and his products over the years, here's how I'll remember him:
Ronnie Thomson was a man of precision. A man of quality. A man that didn't believe in change for the sake of change. He was a southern gentleman and all around super nice guy.
But most of all, I got the impression that Ronnie Thomson was a family man, and my thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends and colleagues in his company, who clearly lost a father, leader and friend.
Godspeed Ronnie Thomson.
