ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Dozens of Marines along with hundreds of local motorcyclists traveled in a motorcade from the Marine Corps Logistics Base to Cordele Road in Albany in honor of a Marine who died in a motorcycle crash on Sunday.

The ride happened at 6 p.m. Tuesday, and ran from the base's main gate and ended at the accident site, where Marine Sgt. Ronald Nabors died Sunday afternoon.

The group planted a cross and American flag at the accident site in tribute to the fallen Marine. Members of the Albany Police Department escorted the motorcade.

"The ride in particular, he wouldn't want it any other way, whether it was raining or not.  He was on his way out to ride with us and that's exactly how I'll remember him," said SGT Derrick Frensemeir.

"I know a lot of people from Albany are not going to be able to make his funeral, so we just want to show his dad and family all the support from Albany," said SGT Michael Barnhill.

His fellow marines plan on sending video of the ride to his family.

According to a release, Nabors, 26, was from Harris, Texas and a member of the Marine Corps Logistics Command Maintenance Assistance Team. The thoughts and prayers of the entire Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany community go out to the family members and friends of Sgt. Ronald Nabors.
