Clark County, Wash. – Community support is pouring in for a Vancouver family after a 29-year-old man was killed in a motorcycle crash. Trygve Blixt leaves behind a two-year-old son and his pregnant wife who is due next month with their new child. Police say Blixt was riding his motorcycle at a high rate of speed when he crossed the center line and crashed into an oncoming vehicle on SR 500 at 65th Street. Blixt’s brother tells Newspartner KGW the family held a baby shower for Trygve’s wife on the same day he died. The other driver in Saturday’s crash was not injured. Extended family members have set up a GO-FUND-ME page to help Blixt’s wife with funeral expenses.

Here’s what the Go Fund Me Page says:

Trygve Blixt passed away tonight in a tragic accident.

To know Trygve was to love him. That may sound like a cliche, but I can’t think of anyone that knew Tryg that would disagree with that statement. Trygve was always the life of the party and was universally loved. He loved life, he loved his family and he left us way too soon.

Trygve and his wife Mariah have a young son Magnus and are expecting another addition to their family very soon. Today was their baby shower and should have been full of joy and expectation. Sadly it ended in unimaginable tragedy.

There will be many expenses in the near future for Mariah, Magnus and their new son/daughter. I started this fund to help offset expenses for any funeral related costs and to help a young family deal with the loss of their primary bread-winner.

Thank you’ll so much for all the love being shown. So many people were touched by Trygve and all the loving comments and anecdotes being shared are a testament to his character.

As our family gets past the initial shock and grief, we will post information about memorial service arrangements, etc.
