LOUISVILLE, KY (Lex 18) - A man killed in a motorcycle wreck in Montgomery County during the Ride for the Wall Memorial Day motorcycle ride was laid to rest.

John Locke died when he wrecked his motorcycle on I-64 on May 24th. His wife, who was on the bike as well, was injured. 

Locke's funeral took place in Louisville Friday afternoon. Afterward, a memorial ride was held in honor of Locke who dedicated his life to serving others, especially veterans.

"He just enjoyed life, loved his family, and this was a tragedy that accompanies, sometimes, the world we live in," said JB Reynolds with the local Rolling Thunder chapter.

Friends said Locke had a lot of work he still wanted to do for local veterans. His Rolling Thunder brothers and sisters will keep it going.
