      Crash victim honored with motorcycle procession

      The man from Ahmeek who was killed in a tragic motorcycle accident in Ishpeming last week was given a special procession at his funeral in Calumet Thursday afternoon.

      64-year-old Gary Kappler was on a motorcycle with his girlfriend, Diane Palosaari, when the motorcycle collided with a Ryder truck, killing both Kappler and Palossari last week.

      At Kappler's funeral, his friends and family gave him a motorcycle tribute through town with 23 Harley Davidsons leading the procession.

      Those riding bikes in the procession say the biking community sticks together especially when tragedy strikes.
