According to a comment left on the FABB blog entry about Monday's fatal car/bike crash in Herndon, the cyclist who was killed was a lifeguard on his way home from work. Andrew Gooden was from Jamaica and was married with two children. The Andrew Gooden gofundme page has been created to collect donations to help support his family. From the gofundme page:
Sadly, Andrew Gooden passed away Monday, August 31, 2015 after being struck by a car .

Andrew leaves behind his wife Denise, 2 children with a baby due to be born in October. Andrew arrived to work in the US from Jamaica in 2014 and returned again in 2015 as a lifeguard and pool manager. He was loved by his friends, coworkers and clients alike.

We are creating this webpage in order to raise money for his Wife and Children back in Jamaica so that they may have the opportunity to live the lives Andrew worked so hard for them to have. Any donations will be greatly appreciated and given to Andrew's wife to help pay for funeral costs, and care of his soon to be 3 children.

If you would like to donate with cash or check you can send it to:
Andrew Gooden c/o Community Pool Service
7668 Standish Place, Suite C,
Rockville, MD 20855.

100% of donations will be given to his wife and children.
