A Tribute

In loving memory of our Grandpa, Loren Glenn Waller, who passed away on Monday evening. 

Grandpa lived an incredible and full life. He was a World War II veteran, leader of his church and community, very hard worker, and devoted to community service.  We grandkids knew him as a constant joker, stubborn as a mule, terrific grandpa, and leader of our family.  He will be greatly missed by us all.

The Ride will take a detour tomorrow so that Chelsea and Jane can fly to Missouri to attend the funeral.  Jeanie will stay back in Georgia so that Steph and Darlene are not left to manage two upcoming scheduled events and school visits as well as routing, driving the van, and riding the miles into the chaos of Atlanta with only two people.  Grandpa was always very proud of his kids and grandkids and supported our effort on this trip.  He would want the Ride to continue so that we can keep up our momentum in outreach to schools and communities. We have scheduled a roadside stop on Friday to coincide with the funeral service in order to remember and celebrate Grandpa’s life.  We love you Grandpa.

  1. Grandpa was an avid cyclist as a rural Missouri teenager and in college before he bought his first car at age 25. He would be very proud and supportive of your efforts to get kids and adults to bicycle more and safely. Thanks for honoring him on your ride. The RASR team is mahvahlous.
