When a Randy Stair blocked the exits at Weis Supermarket in northeast Pennsylvania and opened fire on employees, he robbed a 7-year-old girl of her father and a wife of her husband. Brian Hayes, 47, was killed along with coworkers Terry Sterling, 63, and Victoria Brong, 26. Stair, 24, then killed himself.
“There is a sweet little 7-year-old girl that has to go to bed tonight without the warmth and strength of her Daddy holding her close,” Becki Hayes, Hayes’s sister in law wrote on a GoFundMe page. “A wife will never feel the touch of her husband again and a father has to do the unspeakable and bury his own child.”
The GoFundMe campaign is seeking $10,000 to pay for immediate expenses.
Hayes was a U.S. Navy veteran who served aboard the USS Eisenhower during in the Desert Storm war.
“Brian was a quiet guy and a man of few words but he had a heart of gold,” Becki Hayes said. “He loved his wife Tina and their daughter Caitlin tremendously.”
