MORAINE, Ohio (WDTN)– More than a month after the death of Angela Williams, the members of the motorcycle club she belonged to are throwing a benefit to provide for her family.
Williams died after collapsing inside the Beavercreek Walmart the night of a police-involved shooting that killed John Crawford, III.
“On your worst day she could make you smile, on your best day she could make it a lifetime memory.”
Williams’ friends, Melissa Williams and ‘Cowgirl’ talked about the woman they called “Sassy” Friday night.
Rodney Taylor, the oldest member of the Forgotten Breed Motorcycle Club said the proceeds from this weekend’s benefit will all go to Williams’ kids and her fiance, Stubz.
“It’s been a rough month for him, it really has. And bless his heart he’s doing the best he can.”
At $5 per ticket, people enjoyed food and live music at the club’s Moraine location.
“This is what we’re all about, we are a family club,” Taylor said.
Monday, a grand jury will meet to determine if the officers who shot and killed John Crawford inside the Beavercreek Walmart committed a crime.
This group said it’s focused on keeping Williams’ legacy alive, and providing for her four children.
“In my personal opinion, no answers would ever fix it. So I’m just going to do what she would want us to do. And that’s ‘go and live.'”
Taylor said, “I’m sure, you know our justice system will take care of things. I have great faith in it.”
Saturday at 11:00 a.m., people can register for a scavenger hunt, which starts at 1:00 p.m.
It costs $10 per person, or $15 per couple, with six people to a team.
Dinner will be at 5:00 p.m., for $7 a plate, at 3929 Soldiers Home West Carrolton Road.
