Woke up this morning to the news that a friend died last night when his goldwing trike went off the road and crashed into a tree.
This friend was a retired Navy Vet and was known to us all and the whole town as "Santa"...he was a big guy, white beard, jolly and everyone loved him.
Here he is with his wife, Mrs. Claus on their trike, also known as Santa's Summer Sleigh
And here he is doing his santa gig he loved doing!
He was a diehard bike, a great guy, loved kids, loved everyone..he couldnt go thru town without someone yelling "Hey Santa".
Last year he gave a WW2 vet a ride on his trike down mainstreet for the Memorial day and 4th of July parades!
His mottos were:
Get busy making memories.
Everyone dies, but not everyone truly lives.
