Two hundred people gathered for a candlelight vigil to honor the motorcyclist killed in a collision with a school bus.

The vigil for Nicholas Neal Thursday night was held on the corner where he was killed just hours before.

Neal was remembered as a good husband and father to his three children.

Just Wednesday the family celebrated his daughter's fifth birthday.

"We built a clubhouse in the back of my back yard.  We were going to paint it and finish it up this weekend,” says Neal’s son Nico.

"We were supposed to go riding tonight. Usually I’ll pass him on the way to work and we'll talk but I happened to sleep in and didn't even know,” explained Neal’s brother, Adam.

Funeral services for Neal are still pending.

He was 34-years old.
