Family and friends are remembering a Saskatoon man killed in a motorcycle crash in Lloydminster last week.
Jared Robertson was coming home from the Canada National run in Edmonton on August 7 when his motorcycle hit a pickup truck on Highway 16. He was killed in the crash.
Robertson had joined the Disciple Christian Motorcycle Club one year ago. In a Facebook post before his death, he thanked the club for an exceptional year and for making him and his wife feel like part of the club’s family.
Robertson’s friend Brent Basky was on the road with Robertson on the day of the fatal crash.
“Jared was a kid brother, so he could push all the buttons, try to work you up and everything. (Then) he’d do the big goofy grin and say ‘I love you,’ and you couldn’t stay mad at him,” Basky said about Robertson. “He just made you laugh. He was really good at that.”
James Johnson, founder of the Disciple Christian Motorcycle Club, posted on Facebook that he renamed his bike “Robot” in honour of Roberston.
His funeral is scheduled for Monday in Yorkton. Family members have planned a two-hour procession to Moosomin after the service, where Robertson will be buried beside his grandfather.
