McCracken was 61. He was a 16-year veteran at CMC and was still employed as a correctional officer at the time of his death.
CHP officers say McCracken was riding his dirt bike near the intersection of Wellsona Road and North Star Lane on Monday afternoon when he hit a large hole. The crash ejected McCracken from the bike.
McCracken was not wearing a helmet, according to the CHP.
CMC prison information officer Lt. Monica Ayon said McCracken was one of the kindest and most gentle people. McCracken always had a smile on his face and something kind to say, Ayon said.
The CHP is still investigating the crash.
