Cottage Grove man's passion for Harley cut short
Maurice "Frenchy" Fugere loved riding his Harley Davidson so much that the Cottage Grove man brought the bike with him when he spent winters with his son in Florida.
"The bike came before anything in his life," said his wife, Nancy, herself a motorcycle enthusiast.
Fugere, 69, was returning to his son's home near Tampa last Friday after a day out with friends when he rounded a curve and hit a cow standing in the roadway. He was thrown from the Harley and killed.
