    He was 22. He would have been 23 next month. I’m his big sister so yea I would know.

    You also should have waited. Not all family has even been notified yet. I hope nobody found out this way…

    Sorry for your loss.

    OHP released this accident to the media and is when this was posted. The initial OHP report also had his middle name spelled wrong and age. They sent out a new media email today with his proper age and spelling of his name.

    I appreciate you fixing his age and name. I still don’t like that it was allowed to release his name before all close family members could be notified. There is a GoFundMe page set up to help us with the costs for his arrangements. If you would be willing to post that we would be very grateful. We are struggling to come up with the money, he did not have life insurance and this came at a time when our families are struggling financially.
