GRANTS PASS, Ore. — An Oregon man died in a motorcycle crash five weeks after his father was killed in such a crash.

The Daily Courier reports ( ) 49-year-old Raymond Millette died Friday afternoon on a dirt road in the mountains west of Grants Pass. Paramedics needed a pickup with four-wheel drive to reach the scene, and the Oregon Department of Forestry had to open a gate. They found Millette already dead, with his motorcycle off the trail.

His father, 69-year-old Michael Millette, died June 20 in a motorcycle crash on Highway 140 east of White City. Both men were avid riders.

The younger Millette served as a medic in the Army before returning to Grants Pass and becoming a nurse practitioner. He and his wife ran a family medical practice.
