A Webster man who loved the Patriots, golfing and spending time with his wife and two children was killed by a hit-and-run driver while bicycling in North Carolina, loved ones said.

Jeffrey Scot Masingill, 52, was biking in Monroe, N.C., the afternoon of Saturday, July 21 when he was struck by a vehicle that then took off, according to North Carolina Highway Patrol.

Masingill was airlifted to a hospital where he later died, police said.

Authorities have not released more information about the driver who hit Masingill, but a $25,000 reward for information about the incident is being offered by the Union County Crime Stoppers, an organization that works to incentivize reporting crimes to law enforcement.

Masingill had a long career as an executive in the aerospace manufacturing industry, and was most recently the president of Aires Alliance in Monroe, according to his obituary.

“He was exceptionally well-liked by everyone who crossed his path. He carried an abundance of positive energy and will be remembered as a great mentor with genuine passion for his relationships,” the obituary reads.

Masingill was born in Ohio and later lived in New Jersey and New York. He received his master’s degree from the University of New Hampshire and moved to Webster in 2015 to be closer to family.

Masingill’s obituary says that he enjoyed golf, hiking, soccer, biking, visiting local breweries and reading. He was an avid Patriots and Ohio State football fan.
