"First and foremost, he was just a great, great dad and a wonderful husband," Kelly Seyer said Saturday.
Kelly Seyer said her husband was an organ donor. His kidneys and pancreas had been used, she said.
"He was that type of person. He would've wanted to help," she said.
Kelly Seyer said she hopes the fatal crash will highlight the need for drivers to watch for pedestrians and bicycle riders.
Brian Seyer was cremated. Family and friends plan to hold a memorial ceremony for him Nov. 19 in Indianapolis, where he was from, his wife said.
The driver of the 1997 Volvo that hit Seyer was Patrick M. O'Brien, 18, police said.
Seyer was in the crosswalk when he was hit. He hit the windshield of the car and then fell to the pavement, causing his head injuries.
The wreck happened at 1:27 p.m.
Police said at the time that they didn't suspect impairment or excessive speed as factors in the crash.
Kelly Seyer said police had not told her whether there would be charges in the case.
She said she sympathizes with O'Brien.
