PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Dozens of motorcyclists turned out for a final tribute to a West Warwick man with whom they shared a special bond.

The Providence Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1ENOd8W) that bikers from the Vengeance group had befriended 37-year-old David Cicerone, a developmentally disabled man from West Warwick, who died May 7. The club had bought him leathers with the emblem “Friend of Vengeance,” which he wore to all their events.

The motorcyclists paid for his funeral at the Keefe Funeral Home in Lincoln and escorted the procession to the North Burial Ground in Providence on Friday.

Joanne Malise, director of disability housing service provider Living Innovations in Warwick, told the newspaper Cicerone achieved his dream of living with a family rather than in a group home. She said his art works were displayed in New York galleries.
