Motorcyclist killed in crash Friday was from Hastings

Thomas Robert Sheridan of Hastings was the motorcyclist who was killed in a collision with an SUV on Patterson Road near 136th Avenue and Yankee Springs Meadows mobile home park last Friday.

He was born to William and Dolores (Salter) Sheridan on April 3, 1953, and attended Hastings High School, graduating in 1972. Tom was a heavy equipment operator and a truck driver for most of his career, retiring in 2010.
