We were saddened to learn that Maxim Soria, the former drummer with Valencia, died of multiple traumatic injuries at 6:15 p.m. last Friday in a motorcycle accident in Warwick, Pennsylvania. Authorities believe that he lost control and hit a guide rail. He was 28. Apparently, Soria’s driver’s license indicated that he had been riding motorcycles for only a short time. He was wearing a helmet at the moment he crashed.
A graduate of Central Bucks West High School in Plumstead, Pennsylvania, Soria was close to graduating from Temple University with a degree in communications before the accident. A public service and remembrance will be held this Wednesday and Thursday, October 5 and 6, at Shelly Funeral Home and St. Robert Bellarmine Church in Warrington, Pennsylvania.
