Neighbor Kosta Passes

Yesterday our neighbor and friend Kosta Becker died as a result of a motorcycle/cow collision on the Galisteo Dam Road. It's believed he perished upon contact with the ground or very soon afterward. About an hour and forty five minutes later I was first to arrive at the scene and alerted law enforcement.

Chef, world traveler, polyglot, retired surgeon, lifelong student and bon vivant he was preceded in death by his son Mario. He is survived by his wife Katharina, son Tullio, daughters Nicole and Sophia and his grandchildren. He was loved by our entire community and is already missed.

Lk, so sorry to hear of your friend’s passing. I wish I could have known him. Very few people left like that in this world. My deepest condolences.

Thanks Larry. The memorial is Saturday and I have asked to read the coroner's report hoping to get a few questions answered. You got a little winter in Great Falls?

Yup. And more coming tomorrow.

Just passed the roadside memorial while riding today, stopped for a quiet moment.
