On Friday, April 27th the Triumph world lost a valued member in Russ Seto of the Texas Triumph Register. He was killed in a car accident in his TR3 starting the Annual FOG road trip with 14 other TTR members.
This is the start of a tribute to Russ from all of his friends. I am posting pictures and remembrances as they come in from all of his friends.
From the President of the Texas Triumph Register
TTR Members and Friends:
It is with a sad and heavy heart that I must report that Russ Seto passed away this evening, while driving the first leg of the planned 18 day Triumph “FOG” tour to California. We do not have any details on what caused the accident; however, this news is overwhelming. As many of you know, Russ has been a member of TTR for over 25 years, and was a friend to many. He was the proprietor of the “TR Shop”, and could always be counted on to lend a hand in helping to repair someone’s car. Our club has lost a wonderful man; an irreplaceable member who knew just about everything mechanical when it came to Triumphs. A guiding force behind the Traveling Triumph Breakfast Club, Russ could be counted on to be at every Saturday breakfast (unless he was working on someone’s car). Russ’ presence was felt throughout our club, and he will be greatly missed.
Please keep Marianne and Russ’ family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
