Celebration of Doug Usher’s Life Riders Requested Thursday, June 4, starting at 10:30 a.m. for an 11:00 a.m. service atLyons Funeral Home, 28 Elm Street, DanversObituary for Doug UsherFacebook Event Page Please join us, with the family and friends of Doug Usher, on your bikes this Thursday morning, June 4th. We will ‘cone-off’ an area for motorcycle parking. Doug passed earlier this month. In 2002, a driver turned left in front of his oncoming motorcycle in Plymouth, resulting in horrific injuries. Doctors said 10% chance of survival, likely never to walk again . . .but he fought and pretty much beat those odds, with about a 60% recovery, resulting with daily, on-going struggles. He lived life and fought the fight. His family, who includes local rider and long-time “Riders Helping Riders” supporter Sue Boaman Diecidue, have asked, in lieu of flowers, to donate to the Massachusetts Motorcyclists Survivor’s Fund, in Dougie’s memory. Donations may be made in Doug’s memory using PayPal (below) or by mail with checks payable to MMSF, Inc., (MMSF, P.O. Box 446, Topsfield, MA 01983).
