BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - Motorcyclists gathered to honor the memory of local soldier Jonathon Cote, who was killed in 2006 after he was kidnapped in Afghanistan, while working as a contractor.

Cote and four others were found dead two years later. The annual event raised money for a scholarship fund in Jonathon's name.

The ride passed by another fallen soldier's home, Sergeant William "Billy" Wilson.

Sergeant Wilson was killed while serving in Afghanistan. Riders threw carnations onto the lawn of Wilson's parents' home.
