John Michael Wallace of Long Valley died due to injuries sustained in a motorcycle crash on May 24, his obituary says. He was 25 years old.

Byram police did not identify Wallace as the victim after responding to a Waterloo Road accident around 8:50 p.m., where a 1999 Harley Davidson had struck the back of a 2012 Subaru. 

Police said the 25-year-old Long Valley motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene.

"Even in death John will be helping at least fifty people due to his giving nature and through his wish to be an organ and tissue donor," his obituary says.

A high school varsity wrestler, Wallace loved working out, fishing, hunting and being outdoors.

He loved riding his Harley motorcycle as a member of the North Crew Motorcycle Club in West Milford, according to his obituary.

Wallace, formerly of Randolph and Newton, was a third-year lineman apprentice for JCP&L at the time of his death.

Visitation will be from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. with a 7:30 p.m. funeral at the William J. Leber Funeral Home in Chester on Wednesday, May 29. Burial will be private.
