ADAPTED RADIO SCRIPT
Two years ago today, a West Iredell High School grad was among 49 killed in the Pulse nightclub shooting. Lisa and Earl Crosby talked with WSIC about their son just days after his death.
(AUDIO). “He had a kind heart, he would help anybody that he could, and what I see everybody say is his smile made their day.”
They describe their son as a very academic individual who would complain if he got a “B” in school.
(AUDIO). “He was very ambitious, whatever he had in his mind to do, he tried to fulfill that goal, and he was always just a determined young man.”
Tevin started out with his Certified Nursing Assistant’s license with plans to be an anesthesiologist, but switched to business.
It was work that took him to Orlando.
He had reportedly been to the Pulse nightclub a number of times before the attack.
His father says he started his own company – his employees will be in town for his funeral.
Tevin Crosby did not communicate with his family during the attack, but they had seen him the week before.
(AUDIO). “He actually flew in that Thursday, I think it was the 8th, he actually flew here on the 8th, he was wanting to see his grand-daughter, excuse me, he was wanting to see his niece graduate from school, he was coming for her graduation, and after that we just hung out, we all went out, and then Friday we cooked out, then Saturday he flew into Orlando.”
