The motorcyle fraternity are mourning the passing of Mr Milton Thom.
The well known Cookstown Hotelier passed away in the early hours of this morning.
He had been a road racer supporter for over four decades and a long time sponsor of the Cookstown 100.
Back in 2008 he was left fighting for his life after being turned into a human fireball after a horrific motorbike smash at the Skerrie 100 meeting.
Owner of the Royal Hotel in Cookstown, Milton was a highly respected businessman in the Town.
Sympathy is extended to his family.
Funeral on Saturday at 1.00pm in Derryloran Parish Church.
