All of us have heard about the senseless, tragic killing of the Kettering Fairmont 16 year old last weekend. Ronnie Bowers was the young man that lost his life with a gun shot to his head over the weekend.
Mike Hemmert, owner of Springboro’s Donut Haus Bakery, just announced on his facebook page, a plan to help the family deal with some of the costs they’ve incurred due to this tragedy.
“The Donut Haus is a long time supporter of the Springboro School District. When I heard last night that Ryan Combs (who works at the high school) is the stepfather of the young man that was tragically killed, I wanted to help. There is also a second connection, as Ryan’s Mom (Julie Marconi Combs) is a long time School Bus Driver for our School System as well. My daughter has been teaching for 8 years in an area School District and I know first hand the sacrifices they make,” says Hemmert.
On Saturday, Sept. 10 from 6 AM-NOON they will donate $1.00 for every dozen donuts they sell along with 50 cents for every cup of coffee. They expect to make a nice donation to try and help this family with the support f their loyal customers.
The days ahead will be very hard for this family as they plan the funeral. A Go Fund Me campaign set up for the family when Ronnie was on life support has already raised over $10,000. According to his Aunt Shannon, “Ronnie has made the lives of several people possible through the donation of his organs. His heart will beat on, his eyes will still shine, and laughter will still be heard through the air in his lungs. My family’s tragedy is another family’s miracle. I wish there was a way to take away the pain.”
