On the morning of Wednesday, March 12, 2014, Bryan Byrge, an employee at Fishbowl and a beloved husband and father, and his friend, John Coons, died in a tragic bicycling accident.
Everyone who knew these two men was shocked by the news of their deaths. Byrge leaves behind a wife and four children and Coons leaves behind a wife and three children.
In honor of these two men, who were big cycling and outdoors enthusiasts, their friends and family organized a 20-mile bike ride last Friday. I heard that about 200 people participated in it.
A funeral will be held for Byrge tomorrow and for Coons on Wednesday.

Here is a video about Byrge that highlights some of his favorite activities:
