Ordonez’s brother Roy has created a GoFundMe page to help raise funds for a lawyer, funeral costs and to support his three and five-year-old daughters.

“He didn’t deserve to die the way he did, he was just going to work to provide for his two little girls, which he loved so much, which are now left without a father,” his brother wrote on the page.
