From the fundraiser page, where people have donated more than $68,000 in just three days:
Sean Smith was a veteran Foreign Service Officer of the US State Department. His life ended tragically on September 11, 2012 when the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya came under attack.
He was known to his many friends in EVE Online and the Something Awful forums as Vilerat. His intelligence, patience and good humor were the cornerstones of Sean’s life and those traits moved everyone he came in contact with. Sean was a devoted husband to his wife and he was a proud parent of two children.
To show our love for him and for his family we hope to raise money to help with their current expenses and his children’s college expenses.
The beneficiary listed on the fundraiser is Heather Smith, Sean’s wife. Of their two children, Samantha and Nathan, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said: “They will grow up being proud of the service their father gave to our country, service that took him from Pretoria to Baghdad, and finally to Benghazi.”
