A neighbor has set up a GoFundMe crowdfunding page to raise funds for the children of John Phippen, who was killed when a lone gunman opened fire on a crowd at the Las Vegas Harvest 91 Festival Sunday night.
The page reads as follows:
“Today, we lost an amazing, wonderful, selfless, sweet soul of man to a senseless act of violence in the Las Vegas Harvest 91 Festival shooting.
“My name is Leah Nagyivanyi and I was a Santa Clarita neighbor and a friend of John’s for 17+ years. My husband Paul and John had become very close over the past three years. All of us spending time in the Sand Dunes and in Havasu and doing lots of beach camping. We intertwined many of our friends and to say we are devastated by this loss is an understatement.
“If you didn’t know John you surely missed out. He had a heart that was larger than life and a personality to match. You felt like you knew him for years the first time you met him. He was a simple man who enjoyed the simple things in life and having fun doing it.
“He had your back from the moment he met you and by having your back that could mean, having a cold beer in your hand when yours was empty, you needed help with your car, or in our case your sandrail, your house or you just needed to chill, even if you were someone he had never met before but were in need, he was there for you.
“This is a man who loved his family and his friends as if they were family. It is unfortunate to say he left a lot behind. John has five children and one grandson of which he absolutely adored. His youngest daughter is only 14 who lost her Mom only 3 short years ago. It is a tragedy to lose your father and mother both at such a young age.
“They need our help with some of the expenses involved in laying him to rest and picking up the pieces of their lives that have been shattered by this tragedy.
“We love you John and will miss you so much! You could never imagine how much you will be missed. We know you are definitely an angel in heaven and will watch over all of those dear to your heart and we will help take care of and watch over them as well.
“All money donated will be given to John’s children to help with immediate expenses.”
