Russell Beyer taken too soon in Aurora shooting

37138500_1550385529684043_r.jpegRussell"Russ"Beyer went to work on February 15th at Henry Pratt in Aurora Illinois and did not return home to his family.  He leaves behind two children, his parents, brother, sister and many other loving family members. He was shot and murdered, along with 4 other coworkers, after terminating another employees employment with the company. Russ had helped him keep his job on several occasions but was unable to do so again. Russ was a very vocal and proud union man and he regularly represented his fellow union workers. We are seeking assistance for his children and burial costs. Russ will be remembered as a hard working and happy man known to always have a smile on his face.
