A memorial service will be held Friday for a Ramstein Air Base sergeant who died Saturday in a car-bicycle accident outside of Kaiserslautern.

Staff Sgt. Grant Davis, of Delevan, N.Y., was an evaluation communication system operator assigned to the 76th Airlift Squadron at Ramstein. He was 31.

Davis was riding a bicycle on the K25 between Rodenbach and Einsiedlerhof when a car coming the other way crossed the center line and struck him, police said.

“It is truly a tragedy to lose a member of our team,” Brig. Gen. Jon Thomas, 86th Airlift Wing commander, said. “The Mighty 86th, as well as the entire Kaiserslautern Military Community, come together during this time to support Staff Sgt. Davis’ family and friends. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.”

The service will be held at 2 p.m. Friday, at the North Side Chapel.
