LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- Friends and family are continuing to mourn the loss of Lafayette man Joshua Ungersma. He worked as a Domino's pizza delivery man, out delivering a pizza one night in August when he became the target in a suspected robbery attempt. He was killed during the incident.
"It's just a celebration, Josh loved metal, we all loved heavy metal with Josh so we just wanted to get together for just a gathering," said Corey Parks, a friend of Ungersma.
This is the first gathering since friends and family came together to lay Joshua Ungersma to rest in September.
"We all went to the funeral and that was horrible, you know, you see all these people that you haven't seen in so long and it's such an unfortunate circumstance to see them at a place like that," said Parks. "Half the people there are people who played in bands and knew Josh, and Josh would always come to our shows so we immediately said, hey let's try and do something as best we can."
A number of bands took the Digby's Pub and Patio stage to perform with Ungersma in mind. His aunt, Kimberly Sheets said she's not surprised by the large turnout.
"He's touched a lot of people and he's very, very much missed. We love him. And this is wonderful," said Sheets.
Although it's hard living life without him, she's holding on to moments like this, that shows the impact he's left on others.
"He loved people and that's the way he was," said Sheets.
This concert took place on Saturday, Oct. 24 from 7 to 11 p.m. Ungersma worked at Domino's Pizza as a second job to support his family. The community helped donate more than $42,000 to his family last month.
