PEARSON, GA (WALB) -  Friends of a Willacoochee man who was killed in a drunk driving crash are organizing a concert in his honor.

23-year old Kaine Dillingham was killed when Charles Bartlett Felton ran off Axson road and hit a tree January 15th.

Two other passengers were injured.

Dillingham's friends and brother say they want something positive to come from the tragedy.

Dillingham loved music and played guitar, so they're putting on a concert to keep his memory alive and benefit his young son Payton.

"I'd like for teenagers to learn from it," said Dalton Dillingham, the victim's brother. "I want families to cherish their own families as much as we cherish Kaine."

"Anytime you ever needed him, he was there for you," said Dillingham's best friend Ashley Whitley. "He'd give you the shirt off his back.
