MORGAN COUNTY, Utah (ABC4) — The victim has been identified as Jason Pablo Lawner, 38.

Family members have set up a GoFundMe to cover Lawner’s funeral services and to provide support for his partner, Sarah.

Lawner worked as a realtor and yoga instructor in Salt Lake City. He also played the trumpet for “The Hardy Brothers,” a Utah-based alternative band.

The band posted a message on social media Monday informing fans of Lawner’s passing.

“The hurt and sadness cut sharp and deep, showing just how much of a mark this amazing and loving soul etched out on our lives,” the post states. “[Lawner] was so full of life, joy and passion. He was always up for it. He was always there to listen. He was always there to create. He was always there to jam. He was always there to hang. He was always there with a hug, a smile, a drink and his trumpet.”
