Chris "Popper Bear" Sculley
It is with great sadness that I share the news of the recent passing of Chris "Popper Bear" Sculley, after a brief battle with cancer.
Chris was a former BRA member who had the reputation of not only being a fierce competitor and a very respected and accomplished tuner with numerous race wins attributed to his expertise, but more importantly one of the nicest persons you could meet and one who was always keen to help fellow competitors.
Post BRA, with his competitive spirit somewhat subdued, Chris turned his love of Bucket racing and tuning to that of going on road rides in the countryside of the Southern Highlands and Blue Mountains. He was accompanied on these rides with both old and new friends as his personality quickly formed new relationships.
Chris decided in his last few weeks that he didn't want to have a funeral, he always was a "stubborn bastard", (or should I say a strong willed person with dogged determination). However, a memorial road ride is organised for those who want to celebrate his life, catch up with old friends and reminisce.
I'm sure there are many of us that would love to share a special story or two about Chris.
