Jake Legge to be honoured at memorial ride

A collision between a car and a motorcycle in our city last week resulted in tragedy. Jake Legge was riding his motorcycle on October 4th and was heading southbound on Mayor Magrath Drive as he was struck in an intersection by a vehicle turning west onto Scenic Drive. Legge was taken to hospital where he later died. A memorial service will be held and it will be called the Ride For Jake. Legge’s friend Chris Jochem says Legge was a one of a kind person who will be dearly missed.

“You know, Jake was a son, a brother, a fiance, and Jake was also an uncle to four nephews and four nieces, who they like to call Uncy Jake. He liked to take them out on the acreage riding, and that was a fun bonding experience for them, of course .Jake actually was a tenant of my wife and I, and he was a great tenant with us and turned out to be a friend as well, until he moved on to his own house with him and his fiance. So that’s how we met with Jake.”

At 12:30pm this Saturday motorcyclists are encouraged to come down to the parking lot of the old Montana’s building on Mayor Magrath Drive for a final sendoff ride for Legge.
