While not as prestigious as Richard Sachs a prolific builder none the less. http://www.press-citizen.com/story/news/local/2014/07/22/west-branch-framebuilder-tom-teesdale-dies-ragbrai/13002205/

Very sad. I couldn't tell from the article whether he had an accident or not. I know it said he died of a heart attack later at the hospital, but I think that can happen as a result of trauma. Not that it particularly matters...I guess it's just human nature to make sense of things, even when there is no sense to be made.

Google told me:

"The man died due to a medical condition and not from a traumatic injury, though Libby said he did not know the exact cause of death."

I grew up in Iowa City and used to ride by his original frame shop location with my dad. As a kid I loved seeing Tom working on frames. He was always very nice to us. Very sad news indeed.
