PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. – Sergeant Kevin Kight was killed in the line of duty while conducting a routine traffic stop in 2005 and on Saturday his memory was honored.

98 motorcyclists rode together down Richard Jackson Boulevard and Front Beach Road, the same area where Sergeant Kight was killed.

The ride, a memorial remembering his legacy.

Sergeant Kight served with the Panama City Police Department for six years.

His son, Brandon Kight, says it means a lot to him to see people show their support after fourteen years.

“It’s great to see that everyone still remembers it like it was yesterday. I know many people that were alive for that night and remember it clearly,” said Brandon Kight.

Last year, for Brandon’s eighteenth birthday he was able to open a time capsule of items Sergeant Kight’s friends put together after he was killed.

The capsule was left at the Panama City Beach Police Department so a part of him would always be there.
