Remember Rex Coffey: Motorcycle escort riders wait to honor friend

2006-06-14 - Greensburg ST, Columbia, KY - Photo CM staff. AN ESTIMATED 50 CYCLISTS answered the call from Jerry Quinn, left, to form a motorcycle escort to honor their slain comrade, Rex Coffey. Waiting outside the Stotts-Phelps-McQueary Funeral Home chapel where a capacity gathering heard the tributes, were, from left, riders David Eubank, Tommy Cook, Joe Gadberry, and Johnny Simpson. The Baptist Church parking lot was reserved for the cyclists. All parking spaces in the area were taken. Most in the downtown community quit work during the somber occasion. A very long procession accompanied Rex Coffey as he was carried home to the Grider Cemetery, where his father is buried, near Bryan in Russell County.
