NEWARK, Ohio - Memorial visitation is today for CYCRA Racing brand manager Ryan Longstreth, who died Nov. 16 after a motorcycle-related accident.

Longstreth was brand manager for 18 years. “He possessed a true passion for the sport of off-road racing and motocross, and truly loved the people in the industry. He touched many people over the years with his likeable personality and happy infectious smiles,” the CV family (Cycra, CV4 and Xceldyne) said in a press statement.

He is survived by his wife of 20 years, Harmony, and daughter, Morgan. The Longstreths were a motorcycle family that traveled together over countless weekends to racetracks across the country.

A memorial was being held from 1 to 3 p.m. and from 5 to 8 p.m. Nov. 20 at Bolin-Dierkes Funeral Home, 1271 Blue Ave., Zanesville, Ohio. 

The Harmony J. Longstreth and Morgan E. Longstreth Benefit Fund has been set up to help care for the family; he was the sole supporter, while his wife and daughter are both pursuing an education at Ohio State University. Those wishing to donate may contact Park National Bank, 50 N. 3rd St., Newark, Ohio, 43055; 740-349-8451.
