Children bike to Bike Man's funeral

74-year-old Reed Palmer was "the Bike Man" to the children in his neighborhood. He provided bicycles to all of them and he was loved by his neighbors. Reed and his wife, LoaFae, perished last week when their car got stuck in snow in a remote area of Central Utah. Hundreds of people came to the funeral, many of them children who rode their bicycles and tricycles to remember the couple.
