i don’t know how many of you know my good friend jeff baker ( unibiker) but he is no longer with us. he died 12-30-2004 i just found out myself last nite.
the only reason i’m posting here is because he seemed to think alot of this website.
i dont know much but your welcome email me if your were his friend too.
I will post this slightly editted corespondence with Jeff Meyers, who was kind enough to answer my email, in order to address our inquiries concerning the untimely death of Jeff Baker, known to us as Unibiker. Sorry to bring you this sad news but it will clarify things for those who are curious. Then we can let this thread and Jeff go to rest.
Sorry to bother you. What was the cause of death for Jeff? As UniBiker, he was an innovative guy on our unicycling forum and just seemed to disappear after awhile. His no-hands riding creations and skills were interesting to the forum population and to me in particular. The forum members are curious as to the details if you are comfortable and at liberty revealing them.
Thanks for any further info. So sorry to hear of the loss of your friend.
It’s no bother, Jeff was my good friend I’ve known him since I was 9 years old. Although I am not into unicycles we’ve ridden motorcycles for some 30 years.
Jeff has been having some trouble for awhile, much deeper than any of us knew. The V.A. hospital had been treating him for post traumatic stress and depression then all at once about 2 months ago took him off all his meds. He lived with my parents for about a month and every thing seemed fine.
Well, I guess we were all wrong and Thursday night (December 30, 2004) he killed himself. I have always thought that people who committed suicide were weak and stupid. Anybody that knew Jeff knows that he was a very smart man and he was far from weak. In fact I don’t think in 30 years I ever heard him complain about anything other than the aches and pains caused from having so much fun. This is probably a lot more info than you wanted but I feel the world has lost a great person and he will be missed.
