Ron Eckert

We lost a dear friend on our 2013 Ride in North Carolina. Ron sustained a brain injury due to an accident while riding on one of his favorite roads, the Blue Ridge Parkway. He was a true asset to the club and loved riding as much as possible, but most of all he loved being a ShadowRider.

We knew Ron in many roles. At times he served the club as a Road Captain, as a ride coordinator, as a club ambassador, and most recently as the club’s Vice President.

Ron was devoted to our club and its members. He was an ambassador for the Shadow Riders, always at ride events and talking with people, spreading the word to prospective members, and sharing goodwill in the motorcycling community that worked its way back to benefit our club.

Ron you will always be in our hearts and rear view mirrors riding drag for the group. Rest in peace and God speed my friend.

We were all saddened to hear of the loss of our fellow Shadow Rider and friend Ron Eckert
