      I agree that he should have been wearing a helmet. Doesn’t mean random negative helps. A family lost their father, some respect for their loss should be given.

    You don’t know what injuries killed him so a helmet may not have done anything !! And yes a family lost a son , brother ,cousin, and FATHER so please give them some respect and keep your uneducated opinions to yourself and let them grieve in peace’
