Commerce City resident Nathan Leon — a husband and father of three young girls who worked in IT and supplemented his income making pizza deliveries one day a week— was killed March 17.
Bryan Seymour, a Brighton resident passed away unexpectedly seven years ago. His love for rebuilding old cars was one of his life passions. He had always teased his stepmom Diana, saying he was going to hold a car show in their backyard.
Following his death, the Seymour family established the Bryan Seymour Scholarship Fund and created an annual car show, Down in the Weeds, as their fundraiser, in the Seymour’s backyard.
Pictured are Diana, left, and Al Seymour, Bryan’s parents, and Cindy Jones, Nate’s mother., standing next to a hot rod Bryan built with Al. It was not until weeks following Leon’s murder that the Seymours came to realize that Nate Leon was the son of their next door neighbor and that they had watched him grow up since childhood.
Proceeds from the fundraiser will be used to establish scholarships for each of the three Leon daughters. Additional information can be found by calling Diana Seymour at 303-252-0245.
