Dozens of motorists lined up today to celebrate the life of Connor Brown.

“We’re gonna remember his smile and his quick wittiness,” says Carie Bruss, his aunt.

The coronavirus didn’t stop friends and family from honoring a motorcyclist who died in an accident last Saturday. Police say 20–year–old  Brown was riding west on Highway 6 near Milford around 10 p.m. when he veered right into a ditch and died from his injuries.

Seward deputies say no one saw the crash and they believe speed was a factor.

“He was heading out to a good buddies house and from what we can tell, how he hit the brakes, something must have jumped out, scared him,” says Bruss. “I don’t know, we don’t know. He hit the brakes really hard and lost control.”

A long line of motorcycles and vehicles participated in the ride, starting at Star City Motorsports and finishing near the crash site. Brown’s aunt says the ride was timely as Connor was an only child and his parents are grieving.

They also are waiting for COVID–19 restrictions to lift so they can have a memorial full of loved ones.

“Keep looking over them,  says Bruss. “Jamie and Joel, his mom and dad their gonna need it. That was their only baby and their gonna need him to show them signs every once in a while.”

The family would like to send their thanks to the motorcycle community supporting them during this time.
