Michael Keith, 22, died after hitting a median while driving, according to the Orange County Register.
Update, Feb. 28, 2014: Kandace Gutierrez, who posted a comment on this article below identifying herself as Keith’s sister, said police investigators were not able to determine what happened that night “due to lack of evidence and no witnesses.”
“He loved his son Carson more then life itself … (he) loved playing the drums, loved riding his motorcycle and just had a real zest for life,” Gutierrez said.
Breanna Garcia, who was Keith’s girlfriend, said Keith was passionate about working out, riding his motorcycle and helping others, and was focusing on his studies as an audio engineer at Fullerton College.
“He cared a lot about others and loved to be around people,” Garcia said in an email. “He was a go-getter (and) liked to help anyone that was in trouble.”
I never met him, but he lived nearby so I want to wish his friends and family comfort in this difficult time. It takes things like these to realize how valuable life is, and I pray we would grow from this tragedy.
