MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Joe Necessary, a retired Myrtle Beach Police officer died tragically this weekend in a motorcycle accident at age 46. His funeral will be held Thursday, and his friends and family remembered him as an amazing member of the community.

Necessary's funeral will be held at McMillan-Small funeral home Thursday. The first viewing will be from 10:00am-2:00pm, the second from 4:00pm-6:00pm and the ceremony will begin at 6:30pm. The public is invited to attend. Dress is casual, but family suggests wearing your favorite Harley Davidson attire.

Some of Necessary's closest friends spoke out today about their dear companion. He is remembered by all for his bright personality, huge heart and loyal honesty.

"Joey was my best friend forever and he's the greatest guy I've ever known. Everyone that's met him will tell you the same thing. You meet him once, you never forget him," said Jimmy Burke.

"I couldn't describe Joey to you in just a couple words, it would take me days just to tell you all that I know about him and how great he was. And I'm just one person, that's not counting his countless friends and family," said Kevin Larke.

"His honesty and integrity was unbeatable, he was a phenomenal person," said KJ Mann.

"Just a happy, biggest, kindest-hearted person you'd ever meet," said Brandon Sink.

"Anybody who ever met Joey, no matter what side of the coin they were on, loved him," said Burke.

"Joey was just that guy who'd never met a stranger. He'd know someone for five minutes and be best friends with them. He has friends everywhere because of that. I think the community just lost an asset," said Larke.

"He could talk to anybody, make anybody laugh. He just seemed like he attracted people to him with his personality," said Sink.

"He's definitely the guy you want at the party. Joey was the fun guy, he was always making everybody else laugh," said Burke.

"Joey loves his wife Mickey and his son Jake. They're the top of his world and they're going to be a tough time without him," said Burke.

"He's an outstanding family man. Mickey and Jake came first, he always found a way to spend time with them before himself," said Larke.

"He cared about everyone he came in contact with. There was never a stranger he met that he wouldn't go out of the way to help them or go out of the way to help them get where they needed to be... he was an exceptional person," said Mann.

A gofundme page has been created to raise money for Joey's son Jake's college tuition fund.
