Default Passing of a great R/C painter and driver....

Some of you may remember a racer from Beaumont. James Shandley. Many knew him as JS Bodies on this forum as well as his paint work that he did under the alias JS Bodies. Suddenly driving home from the store last night he started feeling bad. His wife took him straigt to the hospital where he had a stroke and never recovered. He has been having issues with his blood presure but no one knew it was this bad.

You may know him for his Fantastic Paint jobs on RC cars. He did have a Hobby shop in Beaumont for awhile too. Came to Houston several times in the late 90's early 2000's.

Sad sad day.

His family will definitely be in my prayers for peace and comforting during this time.

That is very sad to hear. He was an inspiration to many of us. Based on his website he was a Christian, so, he is in a better place. My heart and prayers go out to his family as they deal with their loss.

Wow...shocker. As said above it was clear where he stood with God, so he is in a better place & will be missed. Got alot of inspiration from his creative work, but we must all come to the facts that life here is temporary.
