Wade Camlin, 55, of Rock Island IL, passed away on Wednesday, February 16, 2022. In lieu of flowers, his family has requested that donations be sent to our charity. You can send a check payable to Rookies of '79 to our administrative offices located at 3989 Springer Lane, Springfield IL 62711, or click on the photo or link below.

Wade loved the family sport of motorcycle racing and in his career achieved AMA national number 36. Wade holds the unofficial record for the longest, continuous wheelie on both motorcycles and bicycles, even with a cigarette in his mouth. He made it look easy and fun.

Positive thoughts and prayers to the Camlin family from the members of the Rookies of '79 Board.
