Dennis and Teri's young lives were taken while they were doing what they loved...which was riding their Harley. They left behind 3 children, one of which was a minor.

Everyone who knew them loved them. They were the happiest go lucky people you would ever meet. Their death came to a surprise to everyone, it was so unexpected, so unfair.

They both did so much good to everyone around them. Dennis coached youth football and Teri, youth cheerleading and was set to coach the b-team cheerleading team at Goose Creek High School that next year. That was always her dream, and it was ripped away from her.

It is so important that you are aware of everyone around you when you are driving, especially motorcycles. They are much smaller than a car, and if in a serious accident, it’s almost inevitable that they will not survive. So, please watch out for those who ride motorcycles. I would never want you to live without your loved ones as we have to do.
