David Codrea: Family needs help to lay slain Walmart hero to rest

The family of Joseph Wilcox, the gun owner who tried to intervene after the Las Vegas killers entered a Walmart only to be ambushed by the female as he confronted the male, faces the burden of financial worries in addition to their grief, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Monday.

His mother, Debra Wilcox, has no money to pay for his funeral.

A Wilcox Memorial Fund has been set up at Wells Fargo, the story reports.
“Those who wish to contribute to the Joseph R. Wilcox Memorial Fund can do so using account number 8485852688,” it advises. “Donations to the Wilcox family also can be made from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. Tuesday morning at Dunkin’ Donuts, 10100 S. Eastern Ave., Henderson; or at Dunkin’ Donuts, 6935 N. Durango Drive.”

Additionally morning radio hosts “Mark and Mercedes have teamed up with Trauma Intervention Program (TIP) of Southern Nevada, Inc. to raise funds for the family,” the MIX 94.1 website advises.
