CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. (WIVB) - News 4 is learning more about a man who died Tuesday night, while riding his bicycle. The victim just recently became a grandfather. His family says he grew up in North Buffalo, had a big impact on those who knew him and will be missed by many.
Sixty-four-year-old Edwin Stubbe’s nephew Leonard sent News 4 the included photo of his uncle. Family members think Stubbe was coming or going to the convenience store on Harlem Road, near William Street, when the SUV hit him.
In several emails his nephew told News 4, “He was an artist and musician. A roofing and home improvement salesman.” He added, “He was loved by many, survived by one son and a newborn granddaughter, two brothers and many loving nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.”
Right after the accident, just before 8 p.m. Tuesday, police described what the 50-year-old driver was like.
Cheektowaga Police Department Lt. Brian Gould said, “The driver of the vehicle has been very cooperative, he's assisting us in the investigation at this time.”
Cheektowaga Police say Stubbe had an orange shirt, but no helmet or reflective clothing. It was dark out at the time and police think that might have contributed. Wednesday afternoon the driver hasn’t been charged. However, investigators are looking into rumors there was surveillance video near the scene.
