Look, I know this is of no solace, but I think the man had it covered while he was here.

Sad indeed.

I heared of it from of all places on the radio broadcast at noon today at work. Took my breath away that we lost him so suddenly.

Godspeed and shine with the stars Dex!

Very sad. Dex enriched this motorcycle community just by being part of it.

I really feel for the son (who hit them), I suspect he will have some struggles.

How ironic that Dex engaged in one of the most dangerous professions there is, then to die doing something rather straight forward. There's no explaining it all.

Doctor I need to learn how to relax faster.

If you want to ride tomorrow, ride quietly today.
Quiet is cool, silent is sexy.

Both Deb and I are absolutely gutted. We spent an enjoyable time with Dex and Lisa several years back, talking about travelling and retirement. RIP to a great guy.

We can only imagine the grief she and the boys are enduring at this time. Our heartfelt condolences go out to them.

A bunch of great pictures (35 or so) of Dex and more details about his life in this expanded article from a Florida newspaper that's followed it most closely. He's smiling in every picture, of course! David Bearden and I were just on the phone, pausing between tears a few times, thinking about it. Many Pix and Story about Dex
