I have some bad news to report. A good friend and co-worker of mine was tragically killed on Sunday Jan 19, in a single car collision close to my home here in Mississauga.
He was driving home from dinner being followed by another friend of ours, in his brand new red 99 Pontiac Sunfire GT, when he lost control of his vehicle, jumped the curb and hit a concrete light standard on the drivers side. Initial reports indicated that cold weather and slick road conditions were to blame.

James Patrick Bolk, 25, better known as Jim to all of us, was a fan of Bonnevilleclub and whenever he passed my desk at work, he was the always intrigued by the fellowship of this online community and hoped to become a member of a Sunfire forum, once he found one. Jokingly, he used to accuse me of never getting any work done because of BC....
I would very much appreciate the members of this forum to post there condolences to the Bolk family and his friends. The loss of their youngest son and our good friend is to tragic for anyone to bear.
I beg you, please remember to drive carefully, safely and smartly during these bitter winter months: sand, salt, ice, snow, freezing rain, wind..... once false move, one lapse in attention and the consequneces can be devastating.
Jim can now freely drive that beloved Sunfire GT in God'* good graces and make rice look silly up in heaven....
You're friends miss you Jimmy...rest in peace.
In memory of James P. Bolk November 18, 1977 to January 19, 2003.
