DICKSON, Tenn. (BIKER DAD) — When 1,000 bikers showed up to honor a toddler killed in Tennessee floods, the scene was almost overwhelming. You can see video of the procession that went on and on in the player above, or subscribe to the Biker Dad YouTube channel. Mckenzie Hagewood posted it to Facebook.
Kellen Vaughn died in the recent floods in Waverly, Tennessee. His grandfather said Kellen loved motorcycles and asked that as many as possible show up to escort him during his funeral.
And show up they did, about 1,000 of them. Kellen’s grandfather told the Tennessean that he only expected 75, maybe 100. “He’s kind of like me,” said Allen Burrow, Kellen’s grandfather. “Just every time you hear a bike, you look around, see who it is, see if you know him. He just loved seeing bikes.”

“It was a national news story that this little boy likes bikes,” Webb said standing in front of the Taylor Funeral home, where Kellen’s service was held. “His family wanted a turnout. Well, he got at turnout.”
