Employees from one restaurant in Greenville honored their General Manager Wednesday afternoon.

Employees from the Denny's restaurant on Memorial Drive in Greenville planted a tree called a Forest Pansy Redbud in honor of their General Manager, Edwin Jimenez, Sr.

The 51 year old boss was driving home from the Denny's restaurant on Memorial Drive on July 11th when police say an impaired driver in a black Lexus struck Jimenez on his motorcycle, killing him instantly.

A memorial remains where Jimenez was struck on Wimbledon Drive, but the employees hope this tree will provide plenty of shade and grow as a reminder.

Greenville police say the driver of the black Lexus, Robert O'Neal, had a blood alcohol level of .13.

Police say O'Neal faces charges of driving while impaired.
