FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- A memorial took place Saturday afternoon to honor last week's motorcycle crash victim.

Friends and family honored Rocky Parker Sr., who died in a crash.

Police said a group of motorcycles were riding near the intersection of Ferguson and South Anthony Boulevard when one bike hit a guardrail and took out another motorcycle. Hundreds braved the weather to come out to pay their respects.

"He was a well known biker in the community. We had a lot of people turnout today for his service. As a friend I would like to thank everyone that turned out. He will be missed. He will be loved. We have to be more cautious out here when we're out and about, and I wish this never would have happened,” Michael Westmoreland, friend of 10 years, said.

Rocky Parker Sr. was a member of the American Veterans Motorcycle Club for over 20 years.
