Rochester, N.Y. – Tonight, motorcyclists gathered to remember one of their fellow riders who died last week.

Lee Thomas, 55, died Friday in a crash on Otis Street near Delmar Street.

Tuesday, loved ones gathered on Otis Street to remember him.

“He was a really loving guy,” said Thomas’ daughter, Letasha Parson. “Very funny, very funny, charismatic, very loved, as you can see by all the support that was out here today. There were a lot of people that cared about him and loved him.”

She said her father will also be remembered for his love of the Dallas Cowboys – as well as his involvement with his motorcycle club, for which he was the vice president.

Parson says support from the community has helped their family as they deal with the tragedy.

“The way the bikers showed up today at the house today was just, it was amazing,” she said. “It was like, love. That’s all I could keep saying: This is love.”
