Thumb blisters aside, Mark Loesch was excited about the new tire he put on his rebuilt bicycle late Wednesday.
When his wife, Samantha, went to bed after they watched the 10 p.m. news, Loesch told her he was going out for a “quick spin.” She thought nothing of it.
“He might have been coming to my house,” said Gene Chadwick, his best friend and frequent riding partner. “It wouldn’t be unlike him to pop over and say ‘Hello.’”
He never arrived.
