William Sims, Jr Memorial Fund

$25,835 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 518 people in 27 months


My Cousin William (Will) Sims, Jr. was brutally murdered on November 12, 2016 in El Sobrante, California. His life was taken by three individuals who targeted and murdered Will  for no other reason than the color of his skin.  The Police investigating this case have deemed this a Hate Crime. We have lost a beloved member of our family, there are NO WORDS for this senseless killing. Will was a gifted and talented musician, he was gentle, kind- hearted, caring and loved by his family and friends. We have a missing link in our world today, he was so kind and loving, he cared about people. His death leaves a void in the world of his family and friends. We would like raise money for his family  his Mom Renee Sims to help cover all unanticipated expenses associated with his murder. His loss of life makes no sense. This world we live is in need of Love today. The only way to win over hate is by love. If you can any donation will be greatly appreciated. We need to remember that Will’s life did matter, it matter to his family and friends. His memory will live on forever in our hearts. Rest in Peace Will

My name is Tai-Ge. I also attend OSA, in the Vocal Music emphasis. Recently, at our annual winter concert, the faculty made a tribute to the fallen in our community, and I was very very surprised. I had seen William's memorial, as I live right near the library, and it hit me very hard, especially the cause of his death which absolutely outrages me, but I had no idea he had also been a student at my school. Many students at my school, my family, and I stand with you and are so sorry for your loss, we want to send you all the love and hope we can, and hope you achieve your goal. I wish the memorial at the library could withstand the rain and the wind forever, but I know he will be in our memory forever. I, personally, will never forget him, though I didn't know him. I hope there's justice for him, and I hope you're healing. Thank you for waking me up, our hearts are with you.
