It’s a really sad day in the Hobby world: few hours ago Horizon Hobby announced the unexpected passing of Joe Ambrose. Joe died in Champaign on January 4, 2019, at the age of 61. Longtime Horizon board member and Chairman of the First Busey Corporation, Greg Lykins said, “With Joe’s passing, we have lost an amazing human being and visionary leader. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Joe have lost a dear friend and inspiring mentor.”
The entire staff at HOBBY MEDIA and XTREME RC CARS would like to give the deepest condolences to Joe’s family and the Horizon’s staff.
