(CBS) — Family members of a Lemont Township native who’d hoped to celebrate his college graduation this weekend are instead mourning his death in a motorcycle crash.
30-year-old Paul Davidson was about to graduate from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a degree in architecture.
In fact, he was celebrating with his father Paul Jr. and other family members on Friday night.
“We were celebrating in Urbana. There was a hole-in-the-wall barbecue joint Friday evening. We were celebrating and having a good time. And about 8:30 in the evening, he said, ‘I’ve got to go and get my hair cut.'”
