    I live down that way. I actually saw him on Sunday afternoon flying, and I mean hauling a**, down Hopton Lane with no helmet or anything. I actually commented to my husband about how dangerous it was. RIP dude. Prayers for the family and friends.

      And the way you witnessed his driving is what caused his untimely death. Sad to know he not only has family but children he’s left behind. A helmet could have very well saved his life.

        He broke his neck the helmet wouldn’t have helped

    He was the love of my life, my rock, my best friend. I would rather him be in jail right now cause someone called the cops then him being gone forever. I’m numb, please in the future call 911 if someone is driving irrationally, u could save a life!

      You can’t fix stupid!

        And you clearly just proved that with your own comment. You’re really a heartless POS for saying something insulting like that to someone that just lost their loved one. Grow up.
