WOODSTOCK, Ga. - Loved ones created a memorial on the side of a Woodstock road where a 19-year-old died in a motorcycle crash on June 21.
The Cherokee County Sheriff's Office said Vander Damiano died in a single-vehicle crash on Town Lake Parkway near Rose Creek Drive.
The Cherokee County Sheriff's Office traffic enforcement unit is investigating, a sheriff's office spokesperson said.
Damiano's loved ones established a GoFundMe campaign to help the family with funeral expenses.
"Vander was a beautiful soul and a light to everyone around him," the webpage's description said. "We would like to help his family during this difficult time by raising money for memorial purposes. Fly high Vander."
A wooden cross with the name "Vander" was planted on the side of the road and flowers lined the curb and sidewalk on Friday, about three days after the crash.
