Fifty-year-old Stahl Sturgeon left behind three children when police say he was gunned down March 8 after trying to help a stranger in need.

As the family prepares for Sturgeon's funeral on Saturday, his oldest son is already thinking about his younger brother's future.

Brandon Sturgeon said he established a gofundme account to help put his 14-year-old brother Alex through college.

Sturgeon leaves behind the two sons and a daughter, Raven.

Sturgeon's mom, Joyce Keathley, said her son never hesitated to help others in need.

That effort continues in his honor.

Keathley is asking for donations in her son's name to the Van Buren Methodist Church Building Fund in lieu of flowers.

Sturgeon worked as an engineer at Gates Rubber and served as a part-time instructor at Three Rivers Community College.
