Damn, 63 is way to young, what killed him??

Quote:
Until his death, Coddington had a 50,000 square feet (5,000 m²) garage located in La Habra, California and had 70 employees. He died on February 27, 2008. The cause of death has not yet been officially released, though. Coddington had been hospitalized shortly after the 2007/2008 holiday season. He was discharged but complained of continuing complications and was readmitted to a hospital near his home (Presbyterian Intercommunity Hospital in suburban Whittier.) There doctors made a diagnosis and he was rushed to surgery. Dates, treatment and diagnoses have not been reported at this time. There are numerous theories about the cause of his death, the continuing symptoms and the surgery, but no hard facts have come to light as of February 27, 2008, 8 pm Mountain DST.

Very sad, indeed. He was a bit of a strange man, with an even stranger team, but he desinged some very cool rides.
And yes, if Duane is taking over, the shop will be finnished in no time.
