Vigil held at Miami carwash

MIAMI ― A vigil was held to honor carwash owner Errold Peart who died Sunday afternoon while trying to protect a customer from armed robbers, NBC 6 reported.

The Dec. 4 story said mourners were asked to gather at the carwash at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday. Anyone looking to help fund Peart's burial have been asked to donate to the Wells Fargo account 5766910227.

Rapper/carwash owner killed at his own business

According to a Miami Herald article, Peart noticed two men trying to rob a customer. He went outside to try and stop them, but they ended up shooting him before fleeing the scene.

Peart, who opened the carwash about 10 years ago, represented the United States in five matches at the Cricket Council Trophy in 1990. He was also five days away from turning 60.

The newspaper article mentioned how Peart was known for his generous spirit. He often didn't charge people for carwashes if they were short on money. He also hired people who had conviction records. His son Dameion Peart said in the story, “He was a very good, kindhearted person and a good father at the same time. The community where his business is located, he really helped them out here.”
