A Gofundme page to cover funeral expenses for the man who shot himself on a street in downtown Sanford on Thursday has reached more than half of its $8,000 goal as of Friday morning.
101 people had donated nearly $5,000 to the campaign for Chris Feaster’s funeral expenses as of this posting.
Campaign organizer Shane Yarborough wrote “a very kind beautiful soul was taken from us suddenly. The kind of man that could turn a five minute trip to the grocery store into a thirty minute adventure, just because of all the people he know. The kind of man that would go out of his way to ensure that you felt loved and had a smile on your face. The kind of man that once offered to go buy a homeless man a taco, not five minutes after complaining about not having much money. Let’s all come together and give this man the farewell he deserves. Deep down you know he would do it for you.”
Meanwhile, a memorial sprang up overnight at the site of Feaster’s suicide. Multiple lit candles, mementos including a set of drumsticks, and a sign reading “Rest In Peace Feaster” were in front of the old Love’s Grocery on Charlotte Avenue on Friday morning.
