Thread: RIP John Parham

  1. #1

    RIP John Parham

    I am so sad to announce the passing of my good friend John Parham.

    He has been dealing with massive medical issues for many years, and finally passed this afternoon with his wife Jill at his side.

    Among the many things John has accomplished, motorcycles have always been top priority. He founded J&P Cycles, he created the National Motorcycle Museum and Hall of Fame, and he has supported many motorcycle events and enthusiasts over the decades.

    John was a close personal friend, and I will miss him dearly. Please feel free to share stories or photos involving John.

    Condolences to you Buzz, and John's wife. He made a big mark in the motorcycling world. I know he has been sick for some time. RIP John.

    It's always hard to lose a good friend.Even harder when that friend is interested in the same thing as you. You lose someone that understands your pain and happiness in the things you enjoy. Sorry for his family's lose and yours Buzz.

    My condolences to the family. I had met John decades ago and always bragged he was one of the biggest movers and shakers in the hobby. A swell guy to boot. I am very saddened by the news.

    Very sad to hear. My neighbor and I were just talking tonight about wanting to go to the museum in Iowa. I met John once at Davenport and he was a genuinely nice guy. He took the time to talk to me about the display they had set up there and he didn't know me from Adam. Always sad to hear when someone from the motorcycle community passes.
