Life is Short... Try to Enjoy It While We're Here



Condolences to the family and friends of Scott Luley who died last night in a motorcycle accident at Clay and Berry (see WANE-TV story here, video here). The last thing I said to him last night was during these 2 pictures I took while he was serving (above). His "Biker Trash" team was playing a team called "The Lord's Team" (named after the last name of the team captain) and I told them something to the effect that I didn't realize I had scheduled an epic battle between good and evil so early in the season. I guess since we're in the City of Churches I should clarify that this idea was a running joke we've had for awhile... nothing serious.

I just happened to bring a real camera to the leagues for the first time in a long time. Posted here are images from the leagues last night. As I look at the pictures it's just the story of a typical night... just a lot of adults having innocent fun. I'm sure wherever he is now that Scott is still doing the same and wishes us to do the same. Thanks to all the great people who play in the league, like Scott and the great spirit of adventure and fun he carried with him...

I've known Scott from working at the same company with him for many years, he was truly an awesome guy. His death was to early, he will be missed.

Scott was like my other dad. I've known him since i was born. I feel so bad for his son he left behind. R.I.P. Scott. I love you and miss you so much.

Just for the record he was wearing a helmet. I saw a post on another Fort Wayne blog today about bikes and helmets and wanted to clarify that...

Thanks for posting those Harvey. Scotty worked for my husband's company for 14 years and was a wonderful person. I had many great times with him having beers and hanging out. I will miss bumping into him at 412 for some laughs. My friends, aka, biker trash, my heart breaks for you and for Scott's family. Sof

Scott was my uncle and Godfather. He was always there for me. After my dad died when i was 10, I looked up to him for alot. He would always tell me to never give up no matter what you go through in your life. He would remind me that someone out there always has it worse. He would want everyone to not regret anything. To live without fear and to have fun. Life is crazy, and if you let it, it will be misrable. He would want us all to be happy.
