Shop Owner Honored Via Bicycle-Led Funeral Procession

Snitger's FuneralsnitgerJames Snitger, founder of Snitger’s Bicycle Store in Beaver, PA passed away on January 29th at the ripe old age of 99. His family honored him by riding bicycles ahead of the funeral procession.

I won’t speculate as to what helped him live such a long life, but the shop’s Facebook page posted this photo of him riding on a snowy street in his 80′s.

    Lovely indeed! Would have been great to have a model from each decade, representing the stages of life of the old man. So basically some vintage cycles as well. :)
    99 years is impressive, a fabulous age!
