Red Knights International Motorcycle Club® IL Chapter 5
Deputy Chief Dave E. Sessions
Randolph Township Fire Department
Served 1981 - 2010
Deputy Chief Sessions served the community of Heyworth and Randolph Township for over 20 years. He served that department up until his passing in 2010 when he lost his battle with cancer. Red Knights IL Chapter 5 was organized in September 2011 and it was Dave's memory that was the motivation behind starting this chapter. Dave was a very active member of his community and the fire department in his 20 years of service. Dave was an avid motorcycle rider and would enjoy time on his Harley Davidson motorcycle whenever he had the chance.
Red Knights IL Chapter 5 started the Annual Dave Sessions Memorial Motorcycle Ride in 2012, and each year decide where to donate money in his honor. We have hosted two rides thus far and raised over $5000 paid out to various organizations, but yearly we support the Dave Sessions Scholorship fund managed by Randolph Township Fire Department.
It is the belief of IL Chapter 5 that the only way Dave would want to be remembered is by having his fellow brothers and sisters spend a day on their motorcycles.
