Greg Cook attended the weekend unveiling of a "ghost bike" in Harvard Square for Darryl "Pikachu" Willis, 55, who died Aug. 18 in a collision with a truck while riding his bicycle on Massachusetts Avenue in Harvard Square.
The Boston bicycling community places white bikes at every location where a bicyclist died.
Among those at Willis's ceremony were Rev. Laura Everett, herself an avid bicyclist and a member of the local ghost-bike group, and Willis's father, Frank, who drove up from North Carolina for the ceremony.
Darryl Willis's daughter recalled her father as "a character," and said. "He had a lot more living. You could tell."
