Friends of the Heathcote Family, I am shocked and saddened to tell you Bob Heathcote passed away Sunday morning in a motorcycle accident. I feel so helpless with Janet and the kids in Los Angeles, and the only thing I can think to do to support them is to raise money to help with immediate expenses.
Bob was a wonderful, warm person and a friend to all. He volunteered his time and talents with his children's theater group, Angles on Stage, editing the music and working sound for their shows. Many knew @thebobheathcote as the official track photographer for WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, and some knew him as the bassist for Suicidal Tendencies back in the day.
Bob and his wife Janet were together for 42 years. He was the love of her life, and she his. He loved his children and grandchildren and will be greatly missed.
While there is no way to ease the pain of losing a wonderful husband and father, my goal with this fundraiser is to give Janet space to grieve without worrying about the expenses. Thank you for your donations, and thank you for sharing.
