OGDEN, Utah – Funeral services are scheduled June 1 for Deyne Stocker, a young custom shop owner who was killed a week ago in a riding accident.

Stocker, 24, co-owned Sid's Speed Shop, where he had developed a reputation and business as the only private custom Harley-Davidson builder north of Salt Lake City.

"(He was) more than a business partner," partner Adam Paul told KSL. "He was my best friend. He would come up with ideas that would make things cleaner and better and different. And (he's) trying to push the industry in a new direction."

Stocker, known by the nickname "Sid," was exceeding the posted 40 mph speed limit when his motorcycle hit an SUV and then a tree, Ogden Police said.

Stocker's mother, Danice Zulliger, said the future of his shop is in question since he designed all the motorcycles himself. Stocker left behind a wife and two children.

Services are set for 3 p.m. Saturday at Sid's Speed Shop.
