A slain Marine Corps veteran is being remembered tomorrow during a fundraiser to benefit his two children. 34-year old Adam Sismour was found shot in his car in Newark on September 18th. The Danbury High School graduate recently moved to New Jersey for a job. He leaves behind a 3-year old daughter and 7-year old son.
Adam Sismour served two tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan with the Marine Corps before returning to Danbury.
Adam's father Richard Sismour says they have felt tremendous support during this difficult time. This will be an annual event, which they hope to expand out to help veteran organizations, including Project Warrior. He says to have to lose a child, it's not supposed to work that way. Richard Sismour says they would not be able to get through that if it wasn't for their Catholic faith, friends, relatives and this benefit.
The fundraising event is being held at Molly Darcy’s from 2 to 5 pm Sunday. Admission is $20.
