 OAKLAND, CA
Wesley Burton husband to Lucrecia and, father of three: Santiago, Enrique, and Samaya and contributor to the community of Oakland was driving back home from work to be with his family but was hit and killed in a hit-and-run car crash. Wesley worked at KPFA 94.1 with his own show and highly contributed to the community through the radio and out in the public. Please help the family of Wesley Burton during this tough time because the least of their worries should be finances for the funeral. Thank you for your support and contribution, we highly appreciate it.

A number of friends and community members have asked us to raise the goal for the family. They want to ensure that after all of the immediate costs of the funeral and burial are covered, the family will have some funds to help with ongoing expenses. We want to express our appreciation for all of the loving support you have given the family. Thank you

Because were about to reach our goal of 22K we would very much appreciate continuing donations. Twenty-two thousand will only cover for the immediate needs of the family. Continuing donations will still go to Wesley's wife Lucrecia and three kids to keep them moving forward without Wesley's income. Thank you so much again for all the support.

Im so happy that the community pulled together in your time of need. Yes 22k is very little when such a tragedy happens. The more money the family has, the more they can take the time to grieve and adjust without the worry of money for rent and food etc.

My heart and prayers go out to Wesley family. I meet Wes 1997 as coworkers and what I remember is he always had bright beautiful smile and positive energy that kind of energy we truly need here on Earth. Rest in peace W.B.
