Default Riiidaa

It is with great sadness that I have to share the news that Jodie Zampa, aka RIIIDAA, sadly passed away on Sunday 11 November.

Anyone who met Jodie will know that he was the most passionate and enthusiastic Subaru owner you could ever wish to meet.

His funeral will be held on 11 December at the East Chapel, Croydon cemetery.

His sister has asked for a procession of Subarus to form to follow the hearse, which I think is a tremendous idea. If you'd like to be part of that, please comment and I'll ensure arrangement details are shared.

You'll be missed Jodie, that's for sure!

Terribly sad news Gareth.

Jodie came to quite a few SES events over the years, most notably the ones we organised at Brands. Probably haven't spoken to him since the Prodrive meet last year but always seemed a decent guy with a positive attitude on life.

Thoughts with his family, and his friends in Surrey Scoobies as well. RIP Riiidaa.

So sorry to hear this, chatted to Jodie a couple of times at Brands and probably the last time was at Prodrive, as you said a real enthusiast and a genuinely nice guy.
Probably on my way to, in or just leaving a branch of Costa.

Such sad news, remember him saying at a Brands meet how he found it amusing when people looked at his scoob and their interest as to why there was no front passenger seat?

RIP Jodie.
