Family and friends are saying their final goodbyes to 18-year-old Beau Greiner.

He was laid to rest at Zanesville Memorial Park this afternoon.

Greiner’s friends say they wanted to do something special in his memory, so they brought out their ATV’s and dirt bikes, saying it’s what Greiner would have wanted.

"We used to hang out everyday after school and stuff, riding bikes. He taught us how to live and have fun every day, " Greiner’s friend Rick Chambers.

Friends shed tears, but there was also some laughter at the great memories they shared with Greiner.

"Haha…There’s too many. Probably when we went to a free-style motorcross show last year. We watched that. He had a mowhawk. Everyone thought he was riding in it because of his mowhawk, " says Greiner’s friend Jacob Wood.

Greiner was a passenger, who was killed last Tuesday in a two car crash on Dietz Lane.

The driver, 19-year-old Cory Harper, also died from injuries sustained during the crash.
