ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)– A downtown St. Louis sports bar held a vigil in honor of the Waterloo, Illinois,  man killed in Saturday’s tent collapse.

Alfred Goodman died from injuries when high winds damaged a beer tent a Kilroy’s Sports Bar near Busch Stadium.

Kilroy’s honored Goodman’s memory and the 100 others injured in the tragedy.

The back porch area was set up with a stage and candles were laid out for people to light.

Kilroy’s itself has been closed all week and will remain closed out of respect for the Goodman family as well as the families of those injured on Saturday.

There will be a few statements made from a representative of Kilroy’s and Fox 2 was told there was people in attendance that were here during the tent collapse during Saturday’s storm, who said a few words.

The owners at Kilroys have put this vigil together to let Cardinal Nation and all the families know that this is a very important time to band together and begin the healing process.
