It might not have been a heart attack or stroke, as diabetes can also =
impaired mental function, blurred vision, and other effects that could20%
explain an accident such as this. Either hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia =
cause major problems. Also significant may be the fact that Bob was late =
the memorial event and he was in a highly stressed state. I don't know =
his not wearing a seat belt contributed to his death, or if that was =
for him. However tragic, and whatever the cause, it was a blessing that =
died instantly and did not suffer.

Look closely at google maps above.  It appears that if you're not
expecting the sudden 160deg turn, you'll do exactly what the Mercury
News described: sail across the winery driveway and hit a tree.  (I'm
assuming I have the correct spot here, and he was coming from the
south.)   At that location, I wonder what the warning signs and
guardrails look like.  Or if there are any.

We don't have google earth here at work, so I can't check whether the
highway was downhill at that point.

How would one access the accident records for a location?   Find out
whether it's a "death curve" or not?

Since this occurred in calif. you could start with "TASAS" in a search
engine.  But this is not on a State highway, you would use this to
find/get to the local accident databases.

This IS NOT a high speed road (I've been up there eons ago).  Pease
was an experienced driver.  And has lived that area for how long?  I
just doubt that the situation caught him by surprise... but a heart
blockage can... BTDT (July, 1998).

  How about you fuck off and die, jack-off.  I have been in this group
for nearly twenty years.  You are merely an interloper, at best.  And
your mouth makes you nothing more than a retarded pussy.

 So take your blabber somewhere else, blibber boy.

  Better yet, Fuck Off And Die!

Damn.  I used to bicycle then drive that part of Pierce Road frequently.

   Indeed.  A sad week, with the loss of talented men with a good sense
of humor and who willingly helped others learn electronics design.

It's easy to think outside the box, when you have a cutting torch.

Good Lord!  This could almost get me started thinking like a conspiracy
theorist!  It is just too much!
