DENISON, TX -- Family and friends held a benefit to remember a man who died in a car accident last year, and they want to keep his passion for music alive.

Denison native Sean Lashley of Lavaca, Ark., died last March in a car accident on F.M. 120 east of town. He was 36.

His mother Jerri Hyland says he worked as a carpenter and helped to remodel the Musicians Lessons and Performance shop on West Main Street. Family members are creating a foundation and hope to provide scholarships to musicians.

"It's to honor Sean's passion because he loved music, and all kinds of music," says Hyland. "His playlist was from A to Z."

Lashley had moved to Arkansas but still visited friends in Texoma. On Saturday night, the cover charge at Smitty's was donated to the new foundation and they also had a silent auction.
