WILLOUGHBY HILLS, OH (WOIO) -

A year ago in Chardon three students were killed at the hands of another student at the high school. While the community continues to heal, the family of one to the victims found their healing by helping others.

With only four days left before Chardon remembers Danny Parmertor, Demetruis Hewlin and  Russell King Jr. the Parmertor family had a fundraiser.

"Through this tragedy we are finding hope and we are finding a reason to celebrate," said Annemarie Iannetta, Danny's cousin.

Celebrate kids who were like Danny. He loved computers, wanted to learn and wanted to go to college.

"Help them to go to college is something that Danny couldn't do, so we're happy to," added Iannetta.

And from the looks of it some 600 people were happy to participate. Donations came in loaded with love. Donations that will turn into scholarships

"We want to continue that legacy by awarding scholarships to students from Chardon High School and Auburn Career Center," said Domenick Iammarino, Danny's grandfather.

So on Saturday night, days before they remember how Danny died, they remember how he lived and who he watched on TV.

"He wouldn't watch any other station news station or meteorologist besides Jeff Tanchak," said Domenick Parmertor.
