Single vehicle crash happened June 4 or 5 (found in ditch). Memorial ride planned for June 13. Condolences to his family and friends.

From a facebook comment "His best friend Brad Ferguson and Johns girlfriend were killed in a motorcycle accident in 1988 on Harwood rd. John was on another bike and wasn't hurt
". Ride safe folks.

"A 55-year-old Cobourg man was pronounced deceased at the scene of a motorcycle collision in Hamilton Township on Saturday, June 5, 2021.

Emergency services were called to the area of Harwood Road, just north of Pollack Road at approximately 8:22 a.m. after a passerby noticed the wreckage.

The lone occupant of the motorcycle was travelling north on Harwood Road when the motorcycle left the roadway on a bend, went into the ditch before striking a driveway culvert.

The driver was ejected from the motorcycle as it continued in the ditch and over a second driveway culvert."
