Family, Friends Hold Memorial Ride For Josh Yeargle

Friends and family held a memorial ride on Saturday to remember Josh Yeargle, the 44-year-old who died following a crash between his motorcycle and another vehicle on July 3. The ride began and ended in Littleton and was followed by an event, the inaugural Super Josh Jam at the Elks Lodge. (Yeargle had been an Elks Club member and his old band, Magnum Force, reunited after more than three decades for the occasion). Memorial ride participants remembered Yeargle as a devoted father of two daughters, Kelly and Taylor, and a lifelong Littleton resident who routinely gave back to the community. Among those taking part Saturday were Yeargle's older brothers Darrel and Mike. "He touched so many people in the short time he was here," said Darrel. Added Mike, talking about community response to Yeargle's death, "It's been amazing, you don't see something like this happen for very many people." The memorial ride and Super Josh Jam doubled as a fundraiser to assist families affected by tragedy.
