WAYNESBORO, Va. (WHSV) -- The community gathered together Saturday night to remember Captain Kevin Quick. The vigil was organized by his former employer, Invista.
His friends and family know him as a man who would help anybody in need.
At the vigil, co-workers who knew him say he "lit up their lives." The Quick family says now, they're moving forward and trying to heal.
As the community held candles, they celebrated Captain Quick's life.
Family and friends took turns remembering Quick's role as friend, family member and beloved uncle.
"He was a great uncle to the four of these kids," said Sara Quick.
"I mean everybody looked up to him, thought a lot of him," said Jason Quick.
Like Kevin's mother who released balloons, friends looked to the sky to find him.
Kevin's brother Jason and his wife Sara say the family is grateful to police for bringing Kevin home.
"They've gone above and beyond the call of what was expected of them. To look for one of their own," said Sara Quick.
"He was kind hearted, he would have done anything for anybody," said Jason Quick.
Now the community has a chance to help his daughter. Money will eventually be placed into a trust fund. It's a way for Quick's daughter to remember her father.
People donated to the reward fund Saturday night. Once the investigation is over and all suspects are tried in court, the remaining money will be placed into the trust fund for Quick's daughter.
They hope she'll attend the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, her father's favorite hometown.
The current fund is at $41,000. Rodney Soulsby, who is coordinating the fund, says businesses in and around Waynesboro will be setting up reward buckets to take further money to assist in this ongoing investigation.
If you'd like to give to the fund, you can donate in person or by mail to the Waynesboro Police Department at 250 South Wayne Ave. or to New Age Auto at 800 East Main St. in Waynesboro. The money is being held in trust by the Waynesboro Police Department.
