    Todd Kendrick "Onlyblue or Megaphone" He was our announcer for many years at the Give-Away TY Ride. He has passed after a horrible accident on his motorcycle in Sturgis end of last week . He was a loved member of the site and great friend and it kills me to be typing this. Todd was a licensed funeral director and owner of Green Funeral Home, a graduate of Atlanta High School, Alpena Community College and Wayne State University’s School of Mortuary Science, he leaves behind a loving family, Missy and five children, some that attended and grew up on our rides. He will be forever in my heart and will always be remembered as a important part of Totallyamaha and the Totallyamaha Family.

    Thank you Tom for writing that. So well said. Even though all of us don’t see each other a lot the times we do surely make up for it. I know we all will be missing him especially at the next ride. I can’t imagine how his family feels and am praying they find strength.

    Todd lived up to his username in this pic... "onlyblue" but he was the voice that carried the TY giveaway announcements. We became friends instantly and always spent time together for lunch, a quick ride or just shooting the breeze in the bar after a good days ride. This pic is a bunch of the original TY crew that stayed at Alger Falls and all I can say is...some great memories were made there. Todd will be my friend forever....till we ride that big snow cloud in the sky.... Rest in peace brother

    I can't say I knew Todd well. What I do know is he was what TY is all about. Always friendly, chat it up with anybody. Let's face it he gave us every ounce of energy he could at the Give Away and we thank him for that! God bless to his family and all the friends he leaves behind. Todd may your snowfalls be plentiful on the other side, RIP.

    I did not know this man but it sounds like he certainly made a huge impact in the lives of people that new him, from what I gathered he was a big supporter of TY, may god bless him and family, hopefully his many friends and family reach out to his wife and kids in there time of need.
