I fully understand you for being upset about the situation.A man died, but you should be more sensitive when you comment about the driver of the SUV. You have no idea what happened because you werent there. I've seen her since the accident and she is absolutely devastated and she will never be the same. She can barely function. Show some sensitivity! Your comments might just be the thing that sends a young girl over the edge in an already vulnerable time. If you want to be responsible for her suicide go ahead! And just keep in mind everyone makes mistakes no matter their age and accidents happen every day. This is a horrible situation that nobody should have to go through. Our deepest sympathies to both parties!

bash bash bash, I just was reading the article where a women from Lehighton crashed her car and dies (1 vehicle crash) and the posts were nothing but condolences, not one said anything negative, may she rest in peace. But when it is a motorcycle it is a "Harley and Helmut" issue. COME ON PEOPLE WAKE UP AND PAY ATTENTION, WE MOTORCYCLE RIDERS HAVE FAMILIES TOO!!!!! Slow down, stay in your lane and for God's sake PUT DOWN YOUR CELL PHONE!!!! We can not stop on a dime. we are on 2 wheels, we have no choice but to pay attention, quit taking chances with OUR lifes!!!!!!!! Wait for us to pass and then make your move.
Amen! You really hit the nail on the head.

I've had a few close calls this season while riding my cycle, and you know what? Almost all of them were because someone in a vehicle was on their cell phone. Others were just people who thought that since they were in an SUV or larger vehicle, they could tailgate me to scare me into going faster.

People MUST realize during nicer weather that there are motorcycles out there. Also, just because some are idiots and like to do wheelies (like on Rt. 145 or somehwere), MOST don't do that stuff.

I go to the same school as her. She can't even come to school because she was so traumatized by it. She said to her best friend "i'm never going to forget it and what it must have done to his family". This will be with her for the rest of her life asshole. So change your perception on teenagers being thoughtless. She inadvertantly killed a man, and that's something even a "snot-nose" cant forget.

to comment again...after i sent my comments my page refreshed. i think its more than a little distasteful of the morning call to have a banner ad for "videos of hot girls on holiday" on their website at all, let alone on the same page as this discussion board. journalsitic intgerity goes out the window there.

I was very sad to read about the loss of an obvious good man, father and mentor. And, To the family and close friends, I wish to offer my condolences.
2nd, MARC, I think maybe you should have your computer checked because I have been reading from this website for quite some time and never have encountered and ad banners in distaste.
3rd. Helmet law, I think they should re-enforce the helmet law(granted this guy had one on) but I don't buckle up while in my car and if i'm spotted with it off i'll get a ticket, but however we've got these people riding their crotch rockets with no protection(legally) Why can't i decide if i wish to protect myself with my seat belt just as cyclists can also decide for themselves to wear a helmet. I for one wear a helmat when i ride. But in my car I am in my own space and it should not be any one's business whether i am strapped down or not.

And again i and very sorry to the persons affected by this horrible tragedy.

Are you kidding me?
I personally know the girl because she goes to my school and in my grade. you think that she wanted this to happen and that she doesn't care? wow, way to sterotype.
do not assume about people you do not know. She is one of the most caring people you would ever meet and is wrecked up by the fact that this happend. what bullshit. STOP ASSUMING

Actually this was caused by two speeding teenage girls. This was not his fault
It was only caused by one teenage girl. I go to her school, and lately everyone has been concerned about her and how this must be affecting her. It wasn't his fault at all, it was ruled an accident. No one was at fault.

For everybody's clarification the road that Guy and the young lady who was driving on was a one-way street, and they were both coming around blind corners. It is unfortunate for both halves of this tragedy, we will all miss Guy and he will not soon be forgotten. However, this young woman will have to live with this forever...keep them in your prayers...they both need them.

For your information you have absolutly no idea how that girl feels and how hard it will be for her to walk around for the rest of her life knowing that she ended someone elses life . And how hard its going to be for her to walk the halls of her school knowing that she killed the dad of a teacher and walk by her and know that, you think shes not going to care? its going to effect her for the rest of her life. You dont even know her so stop making assumptions about her and her life. everyone makes mistakes some are just harder to fix.

as a matter of fact this girl goes to my school and no matter what your opinion of her she doesnt deserve the things that you are saying it was declared an accident people if it was a murder than she would be in court so keep your opinions to yourselves the professionals took care of this. this girl learned her lesson i also know the daughter of the man killed personally and i know she would not want you making this girl feel anymore guilty, its a tragedy both ways around she has to live out the rest of her days in our school knowing what she did. have a heart people i mean if your a caring person you wouldnt be saying the things you are. would you like to be the cause of another tragedy seriously her life is ruined as well she has to go through this is where your juvenial comments are heading you are adults right? becuase as of now im acting more mature than you. That girl is a sweetheart everyone makes mistakes adults and kids alike dont sterotype all teenagers because of a mistake. accidents happen and i was shocked when i heard about this mans death even before i knew who did it. im sorry to all those effected but please this girl is going through hell let her be. shes the one that has to live with it not you, you have no idea what shes going through.

The Death of my father was a horrible tragedy in comparrison to the life he lived with joy and compassion for others. I want to thank those of you who have shared some beautifull stories about his life. It gives my family comfort to know how many lives he has touched.

I have also noticed some other comments in which people have speculated on how my father died. Unfortunately that brings up alot of issues and controversies some poeple feel the need to write about at the expense of people that loved him. Yes, among many thigs my dad was a biker. He was the quinessential bad **** biker that did'nt have a mean bone in his body. He loved the ride, not for the image or due to a mid life crises stunt, but simply because it made him feel free.

To those of you with hate in your heart, that feel the need to express yourself I ask you to please find another means to do so.

I was at the accident Dennis, Guy was wearing a helmet, it flew off of him from the impact
Not true, helmet was there, but not on, he always had it strapped to the back of the bike..I too was at the scene, don't spread false rumors. Speed had nothing to do with this.

Let me add though that the helmet isn't the issue. That was his choice, he had that right whether to wear one or not. It does not mean I am insensitive to the man and he did not deserve to lose his life that day. Both parties in this devestating tragedy will live with this forever. My heart goes out to the families at this time.
