Maymont Hosts Memorial For Boy Who Was Killed During Storm

Maymont Hosts Memorial For Boy Who Was Killed During Storm

The Father’s Day weekend experience has been emotional for a Chesterfield County family that lost its youngest member during a freak weather-related accident. Four-year-old Shawn Wills was killed when a tree fell on him during a storm at Richmond’s Maymont. The youngster’s father is recovering at the VCU Medical Center. John Wills and his two sons were visiting Maymont Thursday when skies darkened and a tree began to fall. While his eight-year-old son avoided being struck, Wills and his younger son weren’t able to move fast enough. Maymont reopened Saturday, with a memorial for the late Shawn Wills.
