Tom Bestwick, Sr. enjoyed the open road; he enjoyed the feeling of riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle throughout the back roads of New Jersey with his son, Tom Jr.
"It was the combination of the thrill of the ride, the freedom of not being confined in a metal box and I'll be damned if they ain't fun," said Tom.
On July 17, 2012 Tom would ride for a final time when collided his 1997 silver CMC motorcycle with a Buick La Saber in New Jersey. He was rushed to Christiana Hospital in Delaware but doctors could not spare his life.
Just two days later, the unexpected death of his father had left the Bestwick family with something else just as unexpected.
