    Like most of Tem's friends in the Fort Worth area, I have known him for 25 years since the Cowtown Mopars first organized in 1986. Some life-long FW residents knew Tem even longer.

    Tem was a very active member of the Cowtown Mopars (originally called North Loop Dodge Performance Team), literally going on dozens of trips to shows, swap meets, and "hoarding" expeditions. The "hoarding" expeditions generally were trips to areas 100-300 miles from Fort Worth, with 5 or more club members crammed into a Dodge Maxi-Van dubbed the "HoardMaster B300".

    Attached are a few pictures of Tem taken about 10-13 years ago, and the 1970 440 Six Pack Challenger R/T Tem restored (previously owned by me).

    I too only knew him through here ( I should misspell here in his honor) but I view him as a friend. I am saddened by his passing and I can feel some comfort to know that he is not suffering anymore. I hope that he is in peace in heaven. We will miss you Tem rest in peace brother.

    My brother and I just came back from the service. 2,581 miles in less than four days, and one of those days we didn't travel, just attended the service and met with friends and family. Funny that the last pic. is Tem waving goodbye. He would appreciate the humor in it.

    Glad y'all made it back before the latest Winter storm hit. It was great visiting with you and Chris during your short stay in Fort Worth.

    The irony of the last picture did not occur to me... I guess because I remember him saying something like "Hi-Ya Allen" when he saw the camera aimed at him.

    Allen, thanks for spending time with us.
    It was a pleasure to meet you again.
    I wish we had more time in DFW.
    You are a real gentleman.

    WOW. I can't believe that. He was a man that helped me out on problems when i first joined and he helped my wife post some pictures for me when she was having trouble. This forum will have a void in it that will not ever be filled. My sincere condolences go out to his family and to the friends that knew him personally.

    69 Runner - You were a wealth of info on this site and helped me out many many times over the last 2 yrs. I knew in the last few months I could tell something was missing whenever I would post on here - just couldn't place it, but I knew I hadn't heard from you in awhile on anything I was researching. You provided well grounded feedback and seemed to be able to convey wisdom through the words without me hearing you speak.

    Just learned of this news today while searching the website info section. 69 Runner was one of a kind and the kind of guy you are better off knowing.

    Thanks very much for posting the photos guys - good to put a face to the name like others have said. I really wish we could have all shown up with our Mopars and do burnouts in his honor like somebody else suggested. That would have been awesome. Better than a 21 gun salute - all of us staging one car after the other...

    I didn't know I could shed a real tear for someone I never met in person... Until now.

    R.I.P.
