Melbourne chapter - Erik W. Turner Sr. 151228
It saddens me to report the passing of another devoted
member of the Florida Retreads :
Erik W. Turner Sr., the director of the Melbourne
chapter, passed away on December 28th, 2015, at the age
of 73. I first met Erik over 20 years ago as a member
of the Treasure Coast Retreads. Erik rode with our group quite
frequently and knew some of the best , out of the way, roads to
ride in Florida. He and his wife, Bea, who passed away several
years ago, shared their lives with us regularly, attending our
meetings and rides and on occasion, opening their home to
several of us in preparation of an overnight ride.
Erik rode his Goldwing almost daily as riding was one of his
passions in life. May we all experience the joy he did on that
motorcycle and share in the knowledge that he now rides the
perfect road with his beloved wife.
Rest in Peace brother.
