For the last ten years of his life, William Toler's family, the store where he worked, the people working with him, and the Harleys he worked on were everything to him.

"When something needed to be done, you could count on him to assist you and get it done or step up and ask you if you need help. He was just one of those kind of people," Scott Birdsong, general manger at Steel Horse Harley-Davidson, said.

Police said just after midnight Sunday, Toler was traveling south on Interstate 95 near Bells Road when his motorcycle ran off the road, hitting a barrier.
