The football world is in mourning after news came out about the loss of an NFL Films audio engineer who was shot and killed in Philadelphia earlier this month.
NFL Films audio engineer Montez G. Hardy II was shot multiple times in a West Philadelphia neighborhood on Easter Sunday.
Philadelphia police say they’re still looking for the suspect or suspects as they are hoping to get help from the public.
Vince Caputo, the vice president of audio for NFL Films, spoke to the Cherry Hill Courier-Post about Hardy’s personality and work ethic.
“He had a great work ethic,” the NFL Films executive told the Post. “Montez was the kind of guy who, once he had his own responsibility completed, he’d go around the whole department, asking if he could help.”
Hardy was also described as “a warm, fun, kind, and creative shining light in the lives of his family, friends and co-workers.”
While the search for a suspect continues, Hardy’s coworkers at NFL Films launched a GoFundMe page to raise money in honor of the musician and audio engineer from New Jersey, with proceeds going to “the music programs that helped to shape his life,” according to the fundraiser.
The Philadelphia Police Department is now asking for help finding Hardy’s killer, asking anyone with information on his murder to call its tip hotline 215-686-8477.
Many prayers to his friends and family as they go through this difficult time.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
