Billy Standley started planning to be buried astride his 1967 motorcycle about 18 years ago. According to his family, Bill didn’t just want to ride to heaven, he wanted the whole world to see him do it in a see-through coffin.
So when he eventually died on Friday, Jan. 31, 2014 at the age of 82 of lung cancer, his family carried out his dying wish and buried him on the bike covered in a large Plexiglas casket.
The burial was bizarre, and a bit shocking. It was very difficult to hold and definitely not cheap but Bill Standley wanted to make an entrance when he meets his maker.
