Evidently it may be true. I don't know the source.

This from the HSTA mailing list.

"It is with heavy heart that I must tell you that Larry Grodsky of
www.stayinsafe.com and his by-line "Stayin' Safe" in Rider magazine
has died. I received a phone call from Ken Murray who is the head of
HSTA's SAM program. Ken says he received word from Pete Tamblin who
works with Larry in his on-road rider education classes. Apparently
Larry was riding at night, last night in Texas and hit a deer. No
word on funeral arrangements at this date but I'm sure Pittsburgh, PA
will be crowded with riders wishing to pay their last respect!"

you can't stop the signal

Sorry to hear this. I get Rider mag and enjoyed his column. Just shows that nobody escapes from bad luck or when their time is up. Damn deer are so unpredictable when they jump out in front of you. I've had several close calls myself but luckily haven't hit one yet.

RIP

Very sad news. My thoughts and prayers to his family during a very difficult time.
