Bruce Rossmeyer Remembered

Bruce RossmeyerIt was last year around the time of the Sturgis rally, I was very sad to write about the death of Click Baldwin, the owner of Harley-Davidson of Gastonia, North Carolina.  Now another one of the most famous Harley-Davidson dealers in the country has passed away as a result of an accident on his motorcycle on his way to Sturgis, and this time it was Bruce Rossmeyer of Harley-Davidson of Daytona.

The accident involved a pick-up truck that was apparently being passed by the group he was riding with on a rural highway in Wyoming.

Mr. Rossmeyer, 66, started out in Daytona in 1994 with his first Harley-Davidson dealership, then quickly built up to 15 dealerships located in Florida, Tennessee, Massachusetts and Colorado.

As did Click Baldwin, it is reported that Bruce Rossmeyer was a supporter of the Kyle Petty charity ride, Victory Junction, Camp Boggy Creek, Boys and Girls Clubs,  and several other charities that benefited children.

More info to follow as it becomes available.
