SWFL Hog Remembers One Of Its Own

By Ron Cox


SWFL HOG held its 7th Annual Wayne Throckmorton Memorial Golf Outing in honor of fallen Chapter member Wayne Throckmorton on Sunday, February 2nd at Castle Golf in South Ft.Myers.

Several years ago Wayne was returning home from a ride with a friend when he suffered some kind of seizure. Wayne crashed his motorcycle and never regained consciousness, a few days later he succumbed to his injuries. Neither speed nor another vehicle was involved.

Wayne was the quintessential “good ol’ boy” with his pronounced Southern accent, wit and wisdom. We used to tease him by saying the Veteran’s Administration doesn’t count service in the Confederate Air Force towards Veteran’s benefits. Wayne never failed to laugh at that, no matter how many times he heard it. Wayne was quick to laugh at a joke or his self.

Wayne always enjoyed the mini-golf outing so in his honor the Chapter named the event after him.

More than 50 Chapter members and guests took to the links and played a round for Wayne. The hackers then proceeded to the biker friendly Bayside Sports Bar & Grill in Ft.Myers Beach for lunch. The Chapter members hoisted a glass in memory of our friend Wayne Throckmorton.
