Just got a message this morning from Attilio's brother that he'd passed yesterday. Really in shock, although he'd been going through some stuff medically.

Despite a rough medical history ( including getting pulled back from death several times) he was impressively upbeat and optimistic.Gonna miss him.. Crying or Very sad emoticon

I am very sorry to hear this. He was a very cheerful person who enjoyed explaining all things Italian to us uncultured Americans..from engineering to food to the wonders of his beloved Latina region. I didn't interact with him very much but it was very pleasant to see him acting as such an ambassador for a culture we all admire through our two-wheeled hobby.

That is indeed terrible news.

What a kind and gracious contributor here at MV.

We became Facebook friends just a couple of months ago.

When I saw him post this...Admitted with perforated bowel ulcer and already operated on.., I knew that he was in serious trouble.

A good friend died from sepsis caused by this several years ago.

RIP Attilio.

That is a punch right in the heart. I enjoyed his many posts here and, having been through the hip replacement myself, tried to offer encouragement during his recent procedure. He will be missed here.

R.I.P. Attillo... I will raise a glass to the friend I didn't get to meet in person.

Wow, horrible news. What a gracious kind man. I also thought he was
getting better. Like many of you, I exchanged separate emails with this great
Italian Gentleman. He knew I had lived near Latina. We mail exchanged a couple
of items. I sent him a popular Minnesota themed T-Shirt.

He explained his last name evolved from Atilius, a Roman name of Etruscan origin.

I will miss his regular posts. Again, Wow. RIP and God Bless you kind Sir.
I will mail out a condolence card. His address:

Oh my gosh, that is terrible news. I knew he was having issues, but this is quite a shock.

He was always a great contributor here, bringing a very Italian flair to our discussions. He will be sorely missed.

Sad news indeed.

I find that my only proper way to salute Attilio is to use Google translate to quote a Finnish song in Italian language - a language I don't speak. I know he would appreciate.

'Siamo tutti eroi
se guardato correttamente negli occhi
siamo gli eroi della vita
quasi tutti'
