From the man himself
The Aging Rebel has lived what cynics call an “interesting” life that has included writing for two newspapers.
He was hired by a daily in Massachusetts by mistake when he applied for a job on the loading dock. And, he was fired from another paper in Indiana when, as his Editor put it, that fine journal decided “to project an image of professionalism and respectability.”
He has also been fired from jobs at magazines and has unsuccessfully pursued careers as an autoworker, laborer, ditch digger, warehouseman, window maker, house framer, art forger, novelist and telephone salesman.
Because he loves children, he has always done his best to keep the world from running out of a babies. And, because he loves women he is usually married. Generally unemployed, he likes motorcycles and lifting weights and his ambitions include winning the lottery. Some people say he now lives, more or less, in El Lay.
Marnie, Rebel’s life partner, has created a Gofundme account to support his loved ones with the costs of his memorial and end of life requests in alignment with his personal last will and testament. Link is below.
The staff of the Biker Trash Network sends it's deepest condolences to his loved ones and family.
