    I love THIS man with my whole being. Ive never seen a man with such a large heart. He was so manys “Knight in shining armor” or saving grace. This man welcomed everyone with a giant smile and comforted all in their struggles. This man was one of a dying breed, chivalry and respect ran deep in his blood. Love poured out of this mans heart. He was always searching for his next big adreline rush with his extreme sports, mastering everyone one. You could find him in the garage tinkering on his toys, hitting the slopes, or up in the woods hunting the next big Buck.
    JAMES VINCENT BEAUDRY is a legend and shall never be forgotten.
    Please watch out for bikes on the roads.


    Live fast. Ride faster.

      JAMES VINCENT BEAUDRY – REST IN PARADISE .. poignant words that I pray are in every sense real as I write this. I am grieving for your family .. your friends .. your community of which loved you without end (there is no doubt). As such; and because I don’t know you, choose to believe the descriptions as described above.

      I understand human nature and that death trumps life in the emotion of the human heart. I understand grief, despair, the questions of ‘why’ .. I understand that those touched by this tragedy will endure months, years, a lifetime of healing ..

      What I don’t understand is a quote such as “Live fast. Ride faster.” My wife and daughter were literal inches from being taken due to the reality of those four words. Our lives have been changed forever; and she was simply going to dance class ..
