A family is grieving just hours after a motorcycle crash takes the life of 21-year-old Blaine Henderson.
On Thursday, a family is grieving just hours after a motorcycle crash takes the life of 21-year-old Blaine Henderson.
His father, Mike Henderson says he rushed to the hospital when he heard the news.
“I’m just gonna miss him,” said Henderson. “I was just out working when I got the phone call and made a flying trip to Lincoln from Norfolk.”
Blaine’s mother, Brenda Uhing, says she was surrounded by the support of those who knew her son.
“He had over 50 friends at the hospital last night and after the accident and so many messages pouring out all night long,” said Uhing.
One comfort to his family has been Blaine’s emotional support dog, Maggie.
Uhing says Blaine started riding motorcycles at 18 and had a love for anything with wheels since he was young.
Mike shared the love of trucks and spent a lot of time with his son at work.
He says he wants people to remember Blaine for his big heart.
“He’d do anything for anybody,” adds Henderson. “If one of his friends needed him in the middle of the night, the phone rang he’d get up and go.”
Friends have scheduled a memorial ride starting at Star City Sports on Sunday at noon for those who wish to pay their respects.
“He loved his family, he loved his friends,” said Uhing. “He had so many friends and he loved life.”
The family urges the public to please be careful on the road, no matter what your driving.
