The family of 32-year-old Randy Willard Jr. is holding a fundraiser tonight at the Tigard Embassy Suites, located at 9000 Southwest Washington Square Road in Tigard, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Randy Willard was found murdered on December 2, 2010, after Portland Police responded to a residence in the 3500 block of Southeast 72nd Avenue after a neighbor heard loud sounds coming from the other half of a duplex. Officers arrived and found Randy Willard deceased and the Oregon State Medical Examiner determined that Willard died of a gunshot wound.
Willard is survived by a 15-year-old daughter and an 8-year-old son. The fundraiser this evening is to benefit the children. The "Randy Lee Willard Fund" has been established at Wells Fargo Bank.
Willard's children along with his father, Randy Willard Sr. and other family members, will be on hand and available for media interviews.
