This past Sunday in Las Vegas marked the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history. The shooter opened fire at a country music festival on the city’s strip, killing 59 people and injuring more than 500 others.
While the country tries to cope with this act of terrorism, families are grieving as victims are being identified. One of those victims includes one half of a gay Utah couple. Cameron Robinson, 28, was one of the 59 victims killed Sunday, as he was struck in the neck while attending the festival.
Robert Eardley, Robinson’s boyfriend, was also injured at the event but is expected to survive.
Eardley told FOX 13 of his late lover, describing him as someone his loved ones will never forget.
“He was so kind and sweet and caring,” Eardley said. “He was quiet and shy but once you got to know him he was goofy and fun and so enjoyable. His family and friends meant the world to him. His loss will leave a scar on us all. He will be missed greatly.”
A GoFundMe page has been created to help support Robinson’s funeral expenses, which as of Tuesday evening exceeded $16,000. On the page, friends and family describe the late legal records resident as a loving soul, who was the life of the party.
“Between his love to cook and amazing dance moves there was always good times,” the page says. “He was full of life and love and so much passion. He loved his family, friends and everyone he came in contact with.”
