Funeral, fundraiser to be held for shooting victim Cary Robuck

BROOKFIELD -- One of the victims of Sunday's mass shooting at the Azana Salon & Spa in Brookfield will be laid to rest Friday, October 26th.

35-year-old Cary Robuck was one of three employees that were shot and killed on Sunday, October 21st when Radcliffe Haughton walked into the spa and opened fire. Haughton also wounded four others that morning.

The funeral for Cary Robuck will be held at 7 p.m. on Friday, October 26th at Grace Church, located at 3626 State Road 31 in Racine with Rev. Joel Lindsay officiating. Private interment will be held at a Union Grove Cemetery.

Relatives and friends may meet with the family Friday at the church from 3 p.m. until time of service at 7 p.m. Memorials to the family for Cary’s daughter Mariah’s education have been suggested.

On the heels of this tragedy, the community is stepping up to help take care of expenses. Friends of Robuck’s teenage daughter Mariah are leading the cause. Students at Horlick High School in Racine are selling T-shirts that read: “One big city, one big family.”

The fundraiser caught the eye of Cherie Griffen — the director of a domestic violence shelter in Racine. Griffen, along with the Racine County Sheriff’s Office and Racine County District Attorney’s Office are helping to sell the shirts at Horlick High School. They hope the T-shirt sales will shine a light on a larger issue.

With every T-shirt sold and every dollar raised, there is new hope for a family trying to heal after this tragedy. The shirts will be sold in the back of Horlick High School’s field house Friday afternoon beginning at 1:30. The shirts cost $10.
