Race organizer, live streamer Edison Rudolph ‘DJ Vintage’ Usher is to be laid to rest on his birthday, Thursday, April 21.
Born on April 21, 1973, Usher was 11 days short of turning 49 when he passed away.
Usher died after a road accident on the George Price Highway on the morning of Sunday, April 10, as he and Kadeem Banks were traveling to San Ignacio on a motorcycle to live stream the Women’s Cross Country Cycling Classic. Banks died on the spot. Usher was rushed to the Western Regional Hospital in Belmopan where he died a couple of hours later.
The Cycling Federation of Belize (CFB) was forced to cancel the live streaming of the event.
“The Cycling Federation of Belize hereby requests all cyclists, officials, and executives to attend. Ride in Peace,” said the CFB on the post that announced Usher’s funeral.
According to the announcement, Usher will be laid to rest at Homeland Memorial Cemetery at Mile 8 off the George Price Highway after funeral services at the Queen St Baptist Church in Belize City at 10:00 am on Thursday, April 21.
Usher was a cyclist, a race organizer for the Weekend Warriors, a live streamer for the CFB, DJ, and a radio announcer.
Usher is survived by his wife Nicole Gallego, who is also a cyclist.
The service will be live-streamed on Facebook via Memory Page BZ and Coye’s Funeral Home page.
