GEORGETOWN, SC -

A special tribute has been planned for a Georgetown restaurant owner and chef who was killed in a motorcycle crash on Thursday morning.

 Christopher S. Kirwin, age 28, who was part owner of Zest (700) Restaurant in Georgetown, was in a crash around 7:30 am Thursday on Ocean Highway and Sandy Island Road, which is north of Pawleys Island. 

Kirwin, who lived in Myrtle Beach, was the sushi chef at the Zest restaurant, which was destroyed in a massive fire that also hit several other businesses in Georgetown on Sept. 25.

 Zest was planning to reopen this week. 

The restaurant now says they will have a special tribute to him at the new restaurant on Tuesday.

"Save the date. Tuesday October 29 at 7 pm at 700 modern grill+bar a gathering for ‘sushi Chris' we will be posting more about evening to celebrate ‘Chris' soon," was written on the Zest Facebook page Friday evening.

 Kirwin also worked as Sushi Chef at a restaurant in North Myrtle Beach

 "We will all miss Chris. He was a great asset to Filets in North Myrtle Beach as well. Great guy," wrote Heidi Lynn Jenkins on the Zest page. 

Kirwin was a 2004 graduate of North Myrtle Beach High School and 2008 graduate of Horry Georgetown Technical College, his obituary said. 

The family has planned a private service to remember Kirwin, according to his obituary.
