A shared love of motorcycles and cars

A motorcycle ride called the “Show the Love Ride” to honor both takes place Sunday afternoon starting at 1 p.m. at Charles Avenue in Keansburg. The Facebook event notice for the event said they were friends and shared a love of motorcycles and cars.  Cross was a member of District 34 and District 2 Motor Cross, according to his obituary.
