Members of a motorcycle community were in mourning Sunday after a local couple was killed in a motorcycle accident Saturday night in Copperas Cove.

A close friend of the couple said that Michael and Lisa Richard, owners of the Twisted Wrench nightclub in Harker Heights, were heading home Saturday night after closing the club when the motorcycle they were riding collided with another vehicle on U.S. Highway 190 in Copperas Cove.

On Sunday, friends of the couple gathered at Twisted Wrench to remember the couple and comfort each other.

"In the beginning, it was a lot somber," another friend Phillip Hone said.

"There was more reflection going on, but as the day went on, we're celebrating Mooch and Hootie, Lisa and Mike's, life as they lived it."

Friends say the couple leaves behind four adult children and a seven-year-old daughter.

Information on funeral services is pending.
