Xavier Souto and Brian Light Memorial Fund

Please help raise money for Xavier Souto and Brian Light's families. Tragically 6/25, Xavier and fellow employee, Brian Light were shot and lost their lives by a disgruntled employee. 

Xavier was a loved father, husband and son. He started work at The Ford Store Morgan Hill in 2011 as a Parts Counter person and was promoted to Parts Manager in late 2018. Xavier was the main provider for his family and we need to help them get through this terrible time.

Brian Light was a loved father of two boys and mentor to Xavier. Brian has worked in the car business for over 30 years and brought a smile to anyone's face that he would meet. Brian engaged the suspect and tried to disarm him. Brian's heroic actions attempting to disarm the suspect provided precious seconds for employees and customers to flee the building out of harm's way. 

This fund is set up for both families. If no space for designation of family please email [email redacted] to let know who donation should go to and dollar amount.
