Earl Ma 1971-2007: RIP The Flyin' Hawaiian
June 12, 2007 11:43 AM   Subscribe

Automotive journalist, cartoonist and architect Earl Ma passed away this week after a three year battle with cancer. But you would never have known it from how he lived his life. Last month, he refused to let his partial paralysis keep him away from the Indianapolis 500 (though fellow Hawaiian Jim Nabors was too ill to attend), and with the help of friends covered the race from his wheelchair. His boundless energy, generosity and wide range of talents earned him many friends and admirers, and he is already greatly missed.

I only knew Earl in passing from viewing his photos from the race track and from his various message board postings on racing-related message boards, but he will be missed.
