Pamela Suzan Vickery, 51, died suddenly at her home in Cole Harbour, NS on Friday July 5, 2013. Born in Halifax she was the daughter of Geraldine and the late Bill Smith, Waverley, NS. Surviving are her two children and spouses Darby (Tara) Vickery and Kyle (Tina) Vickery, grandchildren Serena, Alexander and Owen Vickery, brothers Andy (Debi) and Kendal (Sheila) Smith, sister Angela (Ed) Smith, nieces Chelsea and Jaklyn, Pam’s son’s father Brian (Donna) Vickery.
Pam was very proud of her son’s and their families and took great pleasure in her grandchildren. Pam was an adventurous soul that loved life and all that it had to offer. Well known in the motorcycle community for teaching the motorcycle safety course, encouraging new riders by initiating ladies’ weekly rides, lobbying for motor cycle/vehicle safety awareness and promoting motorcycling through many avenues such as Motor Cycle Mojo magazine and local media, but most prominently Pam was known for her charitable work.
As one of the founding members of the Bikers’ Down Society -Toad Memorial Fund (BDS-TMF) and was currently in the process of helping to set up MILK (Musical Instruments for Less-fortunate Kids) Pam freely gave her time to help others. Pam was also well known for her photographic talents, which she freely shared by taking pictures at biking events, bands that played in local establishments, and family events – she captured the moment and left a legacy for all to cherish. The family would like to offer a special thank you to everyone who made these past few weeks since Pam’s accident more tolerable with your kindness and assistance.
Cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Life will take place at 2:00 PM, Sunday, July 14, 2013 at Atlantic Funeral Home, 771 Main St., Dartmouth, NS, Pastor Reid Stairs presiding. Immediately following the service will be a reception. Prior to the service there will be a Memorial Motorcycle Parade commencing at 1:00 pm from Roach’s Cycle Works on 30 Lake Major Road, Dartmouth to Atlantic Funeral Home. Stand up your bikes for Pam. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to BDS-TMF. Simply click on the DONATE button to the right.
We are planning an open mike opportunity at the service for people to share their moments with Pam. We would appreciate notification if anyone intends to speak to assist Pastor Reid Stairs with managing the service. Please message me privately here on FB if you intend to speak. Thank you everyone. The family are grateful for your support and understanding during this difficult time.

“This is a Petition to be presented to the Government of Nova Scotia, on behalf of the Nova Scotia Motorcycling Community and Concerned Citizens, to improve Motorcycle Safety and Awareness on all roadways within our beautiful Province.
The Nova Scotia Motorcycling Community is an active and vibrant part of our Society and is growing in numbers each year. Presently, there are more than 27,000 motorcyclists in Nova Scotia. Motorcyclists come from all segments of our Society and most Motorcycle Clubs, Groups, and Organizations are Charity driven, with hundreds of thousands of dollars raised each year in Nova Scotia for various Charities, directly resulting from the efforts of the Motorcycle Community and their supporters.
The Nova Scotia Motorcycling Community is also responsible for the influx of thousands of Tourists into our Province each year and millions of dollars into the economy through major events such as the Wharf Rat Rally in Digby and the Thunder in the Highlands BikeFest on Cape Breton Island.
With the annual increase in numbers of motorcycles on our roads, the incidents of accidents resulting in life altering injury and death appear to increase as well. This is a serious situation that can be reversed and we believe it is not only the responsibility of the Motorcycle Community, but of the Government of Nova Scotia as well, to take measures to ensure our roadways are safer.
In view of the foregoing, we, the Members of the Motorcycling Community and Concerned Citizens, have signed this Petition to implore the Government of Nova Scotia to accept the following recommendations:
To provide and publish Public Service Announcements promoting Motorcycle Safety and Awareness, to be aired throughout the riding season (April 1st through December 1st)
To provide and install triangle shaped signage, yellow with black lettering, along our roadways, stating “Watch for Motorcycles”. This will serve as a reminder to drivers to be more observant and riders to be more diligent.
To track rider experience and training of those motorcyclists involved in reportable accidents to determine the future requirements of Motorcycle Training. This can be accomplished by amending the Accident Report Forms utilized by Police throughout the Province.
To incorporate more information regarding Motorcycle Safety and Awareness in the Drivers handbook for new drivers and include question(s) relating to Motorcycle Safety and Awareness in the written test for drivers of all vehicle classes.
To erect large signs at the entry point to the Province, yellow with black lettering, stating “Look Twice – Save A Life Motorcycles Are Everywhere”. This will notify visitors to our Province that motorcycle traffic is abundant and visiting Riders will readily see that we are a Motorcycle Friendly Province.
In respect to the Consultant’s report on the hazards prevalent along the Grand Lake Road area of Sydney, in particular the Grand Lake Road-Kytes Hill Drive locale, we request that efforts by made by the Province to hurry the submission of this report and engage in the immediate implementation of the recommendations in that report. This area is under Provincial Jurisdiction and is the scene of a number of serious motor vehicle accidents and in particular two serious automobile/motorcycle collisions that have resulted in the death of one motorcyclist and the serious injury of the other, in recent months.
To recognize Bikers Down Society as the official Lobby Group for Motorcyclists in Nova Scotia. This will provide a seasoned and responsible body of experienced Motorcyclists to liaison between the Government and Riding Community.”Sign the Petition here….
