Summit County community notes, Sept. 3

My husband, Jack Mossburg, was found unconscious and not breathing, on the Dillon recpath on July 20. I was anxiously waiting for him back at our condo in River Run Village when I received a visit from the emergency services and the deputy coroner. I was completely stunned by the news I heard. We had been married for 55 years, and the shock of suddenly losing the love of my life is beyond anything I can begin to describe.Even though he was 75 years old, he was in excellent physical condition. We had arrived in River Run on July 16, and he had taken several shorter bike rides before that fateful day. This was our sixth year to visit Summit County. We always stayed for several weeks each summer, and he always rode his bike 30-40 miles every day. I understand that before the EMS arrived, several people came upon him when he was on the bike path. If any of those people could tell me how they found my husband – did it appear he had fallen off his bike? Did anyone see him riding prior to his problem? Could anyone tell me anything about his last minutes? It would mean so much to me if I could hear from someone who was there. Please, if anyone can help email me at -Jacqueline Mossburg
