Support for the Passing of Henry Tapia (TheBadGuY)

Introduction
My name is Danny Garcia, also known as StillElectric of Boston, MA. I represent the BostonTekken/New England Tekken gaming community, comprising of 400+ people, which Henry Tapia "TheBadGuy" was a significant part of.

Background
On Tuesday, January 19th, 2021, Henny fell victim to a road rage and racial injustice incident gone haywire. What began as a verbal altercation, later resulted in the devastating loss of our friend. Please see the articles below.

Explanation
I share this story with great sorrow, as we mourn the death of Henry, better known as Henny. Henny leaves behind his three children, his partner, mother, father, numerous family members and friends, including a community of video-gamers that grieve in unison.

For all who knew Henny, despite his moniker, he was nothing short of AMAZING. He was truly a GOOD guy. Henny was a gentle giant, a loyal friend, with a big unforgettable smile, and an even bigger heart. He was monumental in laying the foundation for our Tekken family and is responsible for bringing us immeasurable memories that will last a lifetime.

As a friend, I've watched Henny grow into such a stellar individual! He tried hard everyday to be the best role model for his children. He had aspirations of buying his first home with his partner Courtney, and worked diligently towards this goal. A memory that I will always associate to Henny was his love for the Afrobeats music genre. In particular, Henny took a huge liking to a singer/songwriter, Burna Boy, who happens to be one of the most successful artists from Africa (Nigeria). All music from Burna Boy is on repeat, in honor of Henny.

This devastating event, the loss of our friend Henny, is one we will never forget. It will continue to haunt me and everyone who loved Henny, forever. Life will NEVER be the same without TheBadGuY.

Fundraising Goals
We were hoping to raise $10,000+ USD to provide relief for his partner (Courtney Morton), mother (Miosotis Morel), and children moving forward.  We hope this money will help provide a small level of relief for all costs associated with Henny's tragic passing. 

We hope to run this campaign for about two weeks.

Please feel free to provide whatever you can, and thank you for your time.

Be safe.

BAD!
