"Eat Em Up Tigers Guy" AKA James Van Horn and fellow Detroiter "Dreadlock Mike" (Real name to be added) were struck by a hit-and-run driver late Friday night. Both men lost their lives. This fund is to raise money for their funeral costs. They could be seen interacting with fans outside of Detroit sporting events for many years. They were sure to put a smile on your face with their creative energy. I'm not affiliated with them, I'm just doin what I can to help. I did not see another site made yet, but if there is I will merge this with it.
Please contribute to help these men receive a proper service. Please contact me if you are setting up the funeral or if you have any other relevant information.
