Obituary notice for club member Sven Bolke LM840

Passed away at Lahr Germany area today June 19th, 2016
Received from Tim Majovsky:
I just received the most unfortunate news this morning from Mary Bolke that Sven died early today during a bicycle competition in the Lahr Germany area. He was second place behind another bicyclist on a 20km route but when the other person was on the return he spotted Sven lying at the side of the trail. Medical authorities could not revive him. I suspect it was heart failure.  Mary  has asked that I look after notifying his friends and associations. My good friend died doing what he loved all his life... challenging, physical competitive adventures. We had made plans to attend the Vimy centenary next year...still can't believe he is gone :
