(WMC-TV) - Many say life will never been the same after a young man was killed in a motorcycle accident in Tipton County Monday.

The accident happened on Beaver Road when a woman drove an SUV out of a private drive in front of 22-year-old Vernon Maughan, who family and friends call "CJ".

As the funeral is planned for the young man, his family and friends are remembering the way he touched so many lives.

"Motorcycles were something we found a passion in, a love for, and he loved being out there as much as me," said CJ's cousin, Hogan Maughan.

CJ loved riding his motorcycle. He and his cousin spoke almost every day and rode their motorcycles together whenever possible.

"We grew up together from day one, six months apart, a cousin but practically a brother," said Hogan. "I have a text from him from this past Friday. I don't think I'll ever delete it. It'll be what I look back to."

Family members say CJ died doing what he loved.

"I hate the circumstances but it helps you put into perspective what's important in your life and that's family and friends. You don't take those relationships for granted," said Hogan.

CJ is described as kind and genuine. His family says he was known for his sense of humor and that people flocked to him.

"Whatever he said, you knew he meant it from his heart," adds CJ's boss, Lee Waterbury.

Waterbury remembers how CJ always wanted to help others. He remembers celebrating CJ's 13th birthday on a mission trip in Honduras.

Waterbury says saying goodbye is hard but keeping CJ's legacy alive is easy.

"You don't know when someone walks away from you when it's going to be the last time," continued Waterbury.

So far, no charges have been filed against the woman who hit CJ Maughan.

Maughan's visitation is set for Thursday from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. at Munford Funeral Home in Munford, Tennessee.

His funeral service is set for 2 p.m. Friday at the Holly Grove Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Brighton.
