The story on the page reads:
On Wednesday, May 22nd, we lost a part of our ‘ohana and our friend, Dave Mahon, in a tragic motorcycle accident. Dave was an adoring father, had a zest for life, and a passion for contributing to our community. He was recently promoted to Captain at Central Fire Station in Hilo, an achievement he worked hard for. He touched the lives of so many and will be dearly missed.
Dylan, Dave’s 10-year old son, was the love of his life. Dave would be honored knowing that his friends and family will continue to support, guide, and love Dylan. Education was important to Dave. He had Dylan’s future in mind and wanted him to go to college.
As of Wednesday evening, the page had raised $16,255 of $25,000 goal.
