Brian Golec Memorial Fund
Brian was an amazing, caring person, always willing to help anyone he met.
On Friday, February 13, 2015, Brian's life was taken and his light was extinguished from this world. If you don't know what happened, please click the link. http://www.ohio.com/news/break-news/akron-man-charged-with-fatally-stabbing-his-son-1.566970#.VN-HgnyF7yc.facebook
As per Gofundme.com's email request, I am updating the campaign information here
I am Victor Murdock from Akron, Ohio. I am the bass player in the band Murphy's Children, where Brian was the drummer until his death. My partner and I are trying to raise money to help Brian's mother and step father pay for Brian's funeral expenses, head stone, etc. Any money we receive from this fund raiser will be given directly to Brian's mother.
Brian died!!! Stop caring so much about whether he identified as male or female and give a shit about the fact he died!! Hell he was murdered how about we talk about drug addiction. Brian wasn't a label he was a person. Why not remember him for that and not what he was gender wise
Very disturbing to see so many hateful comments, Bri or Brian - it doesn't matter - a human life was taken tragically despite the story behind his journey.......love thy neighbor and do not judge people - that is the problem with this world..........fly high Brian........
Really I just want to beat the fuck outta all you jackasses saying he was a girl. Brian decided he wanted to stay a man, and be with Sarah, they were freaking engaged, they interviewed his fiance on Akron news . So don't sit here and say no one excepted Brian for who the fuck he was. We loved him for who he was. If you believe Brian was a girl don't ducking speak. Point blank, get off the page, cuz if someone where to call Brian a girl to my face I'd break them. Only his friends and family knew why he made the choices he made and he chose to be known as Brian not Bri. You dumb fucks. And sorry Brian wherever you are for going off on here but I gotta set people straight. This is for people who have heard his story and are willing to help his family. Hense the word HIS and not her. Get it right fuckers
Becca, you're a very ignorant person. I feel sorry for you.
The ghouls of the trans-cult who cherish death care more about 'misgendering' someone than they do about the person who died. Sick.
the prosection is paid by the state NOT the victim. money contribted to tis fund re: legal fees can only be for Kevin/
Carol Littlefield, well said!!! People need to put their agenda's aside and mourn the loss of this young man.
Becca~Really? Brian was a kind hearted soul who was murdered. I met HIM a few times. His family (mother and step father) are hurting right now. They didn't have life insurance for a 22 year old active young man. They need help. Funerals cost money. Brian sure didn't ask for this and neither did his family. I gave money because this was horrible and Brain was a good kid. Go read the story about how he took his pathetic father in 2 years ago and he stole from Brain. Yes his father was homeless and he was trying to the right thing. Noone asked to be murdered or his reputation ruined. RIP Brian and FLY high and my condolences to the family.
There are a number of people who have been concerned about the money being collected going to the defense of Kevin Golec. That is not, and will NEVER be, the case. We are raising funds to help the family bury their son AND for the purpose of any legal fees they may incur in the PROSECUTION of Kevin Golec.
I see a lot on here about male or female see a lot on here about Bri or Brian I see a lot of different opinions I see a lot of different attitudes As I am a stranger in the midst of this let me give you my valueless opinion.first of all this has been set up to fulfill the final arrangements of a kindred spirit that was murdered in cold blood a young child that was trying to take care of his sick demented father male female shemale does it really matter? This isn't about anybody here leaving comments this is about a poor young child that was murdered in cold blood. to those of you out there ordering people not to donate to this you should really look in the mirror and decide whether this is about you. what about the person that was murdered in cold blood obviously everyone on here loved this person now is the time to put all of your love together to help this person move on! join together and celebrate this person's love in spirit rather than revel in hatred
Alright if I hear that my cousin was a god damn girl one more time all hell will break lose! U obviously did.not know him! My husband grew up with him they bathed together they played together they changed in front of each other and from what he said his fucking cousin was a MAN! So my suggestion to u stupid mother fuckers who want to keep running ur mouth about something u have no idea about STFU
OK THIS IS ENOUGH!! THIS WORLD SADDENS ME MORE AND MORE EVERY DAY!!! Brian's story is no less tragic because he is not Transgender! Just because Brian had a profile for Bri Golec that only had one picture, one post & one friend...from 2 YEARS AGO...make this any less of a tragedy because ....Yes, there was a time when he introduced himself as BRI (A Transgender Woman) but for the last 2 YEARS he has been introducing himself as BRIAN (A Trans Friendly STRAIGHT Male with a Female Fiance)! Brian Golec was the type of person who rejected labels & was the MOST SPIRITED, KIND HEARTED & LOVING SOUL! SO, why in the HELL is everyone trying to label him, when it doesn't matter! WE ALL LOVED HIM FOR WHO HE WAS (Whether you knew him as BRI or BRIAN)...... IT DOES NOT MATTER!! The ones who were the closest to him only called him by the name he introduced himself as! PLEASE, CAN WE JUST LEAVE IT ALONE AND MOURN AS A UNIT! WE ALL LOVED THE SAME HUMAN BEING! STOP MAKING THIS OUT TO BE MORE THAN WHAT IT IS.......THE DEATH OF A LOVED ONE! I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOUR FACE BRIAN!!
Do people not read? It states he went by Brian for the past year. He didn't like labels, don't tell people not to donate and give him a proper memorial if you haven't even understood the story yourself.
It sickens me how even after her death you still haven't truly seen your own child; seen her for what she was, and not what you wanted her to be. Her name was Bri, NOT Brian; she was girl, NOT a boy. Acknowledge it or never acknowledge your own child.
Becca. Really? You are clueless.
I urge everyone to not donate to this. Regardless of whether his mother didn't stab him these people STILL don't understand and disrespect HER even after she's gone. This could of been avoided if these parents just opened up their hearts and loved BRI unconditionally like they were susspose to do.
MY thoughts are with Bri. So sorry for your sick, disturbed, disgusting backward father and apparent 'friends'. RIP girl x
My codolances to everyone who loved Brian, but I hope this money does not go to support the murderer in any way shape or form.
We miss you terribly , but now you are free from all the evils of the worldworld no one can hurt you now . fly high my friend . I know you're looking over all of us . you will never be forgotten and forever will be loved .you are Free
Murphy's children loves you brian
