Ryan Donkersgoed, born March 15th 1984, moved to Georgia in July of 2006 so that his young wife and newborn son could be closer to his wife’s family and to find gainful employment to support them. In August 2006 he started to work with National Welders in Toccoa as a customer service representative. A few months ago he started the process of earning his CDL license to better provide for his family. Ryan was so proud when he got the license, waving them in the air to show his co-workers. On Monday July 2nd, Ryan left the Toccoa store at 7:00am on one of his first days as a driver. At 7:30am Ryan lost control of his truck and was killed. Ryan leaves behind a young wife Jennifer, a 21 month son Joshua, and on August 1, 2007, a month after his death, his second son Noah Ryan is born.So many of us journey to the mountains in the fall of the year to see the fall colors, Please make this part of your weekend, SATURDAY OCTOBER 20TH. Ryan's Ride is being organized to benefit this young family left without a father and provider.There will be several individual rides from all across the region with one destination. Several staging points will be named along the route for riders to join in, so the closer we get to Toccoa, the larger the ride will become. Our last staging area will be at Lake Hartwell between Westminster, SC and Toccoa, GA on Highway 123, the first road on the left as you enter Georgia after crossing the lake (Stephens County Recreation Area). We will then ride to the Stephens County Fair Grounds in Toccoa as one large Group. Please note that alcohol is prohibited on the Fair Grounds.The Northeast Georgia Mountains as well as the nearby Smokey Mountains and Blue Ridge Parkway are beautiful and full of color this time of the year and a great time for motorcycle enthusiast to enjoy the best Mother Nature has to offer while doing something that will truly make a difference in this young family's future.
