MURRELLS INLET, S.C. (WBTW) – An estimated 200 people came together Wednesday night at the Suck, Bang, Blow biker bar in Murrells Inlet to remember Stephen Pease.

Pease died in a motorcycle crash on Saturday. Troopers indicated it was a single-vehicle crash.

The bar’s former general manager, Bill Barber, told News13 that Pease was “like a son” to him and was “a fine young man,” “awesome father,” and “great husband.” Barber also praised Pease as a hard worker who was smart and very funny.

Pease worked for SBB for a number of years, including as assistant manager when Barber was the general manager. He later became general manager himself and then more recently became a part owner, according to Barber.

“He was my friend, he was everybody’s friend, he was something special to suck bang blow. This bar is amazing. It’s transformed itself over the years numerous times and he was a big part of that,” Barber said.

Barber added, “he was a special guy. He was one of a kind, he was like my son. I loved him, I know everybody loved him.”

Pease’s wake will be held from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Friday at Burroughs Funeral Home in Murrells Inlet, according to a post on the bar’s Facebook page.
