One of the biggest name among Elvis fan World, Ger Rijff, has sadly passed away on Saturday 13th July.
Ger Rijff made his mark on the Elvis World by producing more than 20 books on Elvis, featuring many unearthed photo's that are totally cool to this day.
His Son posted the following message on Ger's Facebook page:
Dear friends, My father has passed away last saturday. An absolute unexpected tragedy. He is known for his knowledge, creativity and kindness (and justly grumpyness on his Rijffster page). He was and will be my best buddy, I can’t describe how much he will be missed. Dad has taught me some of the most important things in life: a great taste in music and the importance of freedom. Please show some respect to Ger and me, do NOT send any Gifs with sparkles or Elvis angels (or any of these crappy things Dad hated). He might come and haunt you if you do so! Ha, love you Dad, go and get ‘em. “When the broken-hearted people, living in the world agree, there will be an answer, Let it Be” - The Fab Four (whom where as good as the King).
