Ralph Frazier Jr., co-owner of Frazier's Harley-Davidson in Buford, Ga., was killed Thursday when a tree limb fell on him during a ride in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee.
Frazier had been riding with his girlfriend when a storm erupted, friends reported to WSB-TV in Atlanta. Frazier stopped his bike, but the wind snapped a tree limb, which fell on Frazier's head. Frazier's girlfriend received a minor injury to her leg, the dealership's website reported.
The dealership continued operations over the weekend but closed Monday for the funeral. Motorcyclists were encouraged to meet at the dealership before riding to the funeral. Frazier is survived by two teenage daughters.
