Marty and family, we loved â€œRevâ€ so much and he will be greatly missed. If you had the opportunity to call Rev a friend then you will understand that is somewhat of an understatement. Rev never met a stranger and always had a fun story to share based on a real life experience. What a great guy to call a friend, he will be greatly missed! Becky & Rodney

Rev was a special person, I've never met anyone like him before, I took the craziest motorcycle road trip of my life with him, He met me in Houston, TX and in 2 days we were in MazatlÃ¡n Mx, on Mexico's west coast, traveling over the Devil's Backbone, one of the most dangerous roads there is,, I can here him say 'if we left now, we'd be late" at 6 am.. A truly unique person and fun to be around , so sorry to hear of his passing
Didn't we have fun times?! So many fond memories! Revon was such a special person; always greeted me with a big smile and a hug; always was kind and gentle, even with his frequent teasing; I loved the way he so obviously adored Marty. He was a sweetheart, and I will miss him.
Rest In Peace, Revon. I bought many motorcycles from you and enjoyed them all, but I enjoyed visiting with you the most. Your trips to Mexico were legendary.
Itâ€™s hard to believe Revon is no longer with us. He was an exceptional man who I am happy to say was always a great friend to me. He will live in the memory of many of us and his legend will last for years. My deepest condolences to Marty, Jean Ann, Jo Lyn and Carmen. Vaya con Dios, Revon.
