VIDEO: 22-year-old Joshua Gasper was in a motorcycle crash in Columbus on Aug. 2nd. This week, family and friends are coming together to honor his memory. Gasper is the son of a Lincoln Fire and Rescue firefighter, and LFR said it plans to rally around the family of one of its own. Family friend Nic Cunningham described Josh as a bright kid. "He was an Eagle Scout at 16," Cunningham said. "He had a diving scholarship to South Dakota State University. He was just a good kid." Friends started a GoFundMe page in Josh's honor. In just three days, it has raised nearly $25,000 for the family.
