Fund set for family of drowing victims

A benefit fund has been established for the family of a Moorhead man and his grandson who both drowned Dec. 20 in Texas.

The fund for the Ramon Alonzo family is set up at State Bank of Hawley, 3004 14th St. S., Moorhead.

Alonzo, 58, and his 4-year-old grandson, Elisha Alonzo, drowned during a fishing trip near Crystal City, Texas, when the boy fell into the water and the man – who didn’t know how to swim – jumped in to try to save him, authorities said.
