Ride to honor biker dad killed by left turning camper
UPDATE: Friends have reached out to me about this biker dad who was killed. He leaves behind a wife and four children.
According to his online obituary: Dustin Kirkpatrick, 36, “was a friend to everyone he met. If anyone needed anything, he was always there to lend a hand, give an encouraging word, or just listen. Dustin was the owner of DK Guttering and was a hard worker and played even harder. He loved his motorcycle, fishing, but most of all, Dustin loved spending time with his family. He lived his life to the absolute fullest, loved to the fullest, and will surely be missed by all those lives he has touched.”
He leaves behind a wife and four children. The family is hoping many bikers come for his final ride.
