The fundraiser has a goal of $100,000, of which more than $35,000 has been raised as of this publication.

“With God‘s will the killer will be arrested and the family will see him face to face. This may help bring closure to this tragedy,” Kinard added.

Wactor received a fatal shot after finishing a bartending shift in Downtown Los Angeles. He was reportedly walking with a female co-worker when he noticed three men attempting to steal a catalytic converter from his car.

According to Wactor’s brother Grant, the General Hospital alum saw the thieves and asked if he was being towed.

“He came across them and he thought his truck was being towed. So he said something to the guys, like, ‘Hey, are you towing?’” Grant Wactor told the Daily Mail. “And then once he turned around, he saw what was happening and he put his coworker behind him. And that’s when they shot him.”

Wactor appeared in the ABC soap between 2020 and 2022 as Brando Corbin.
