Motorcycle ride will benefit Judds with medical recovery

Community members are being asked to show their support during a motorcycle charity ride Saturday morning, July 27, to benefit severely injured Gillespie County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Jim Judd and his wife, Sheri.

The Judds were injured June 25 in a head-on, two-vehicle collision that also claimed the life of local resident David Charles Meurer on Ranch to Market Road 1631.

While Sheri has reportedly improved enough to be discharged from physical rehabilitation, the county’s chief deputy remains in a quadriplegic state and on a ventilator in the intensive care unit of San Antonio Medical Center (SAMC.)

“Jim needs lots of prayers,” said his son-in-law, Mike Goy on Monday.

“He’s fighting and so we’re going to keep fighting with him,” Goy said, adding that Jim’s spirits are good, that he’s holding his own and breathing more on his own.

“As you could imagine, the medical bills will be a very big concern and this ride is dedicated to them to help raise money for those bills,” Goy said.
