Joey Soriano vintage BMW enthusiast passed away

Post by amahoser » Fri Apr 03, 2015 4:04 am

My father, Joey Soriano passed away last Saturday after succumbing to cancer at the age of 68.

He was a long time /2 enthusiast that had restored possibly 40 or more BMWs. He stopped his restoration hobby about 12 years ago when he decided to stop riding. I remember going to my dad's house and watching work on the old /2s. Usually, there would be at least 5 bikes in various stages of restoration. His restoration work was second to none. He was known throughout the community for his excellent work and extremely beautiful bikes.

My father lived in San Dimas, Ca. His funeral will take place Saturday, April 18. I would absolutely love to have a few /2s escort the funeral procession as a tribute to my father. I think he would have loved that.

If you are interested or if you know anyone in the /2 community that knew Joey Soriano I would love to hear from you.

Thank you and feel free to repost this on any other forum or list. I would love for this happen.

Jose Soriano
