John Ferguson, the father Kyle Yorlets’ bandmate, Christian Ferguson, has started a GoFundMe campaign to help the Yorlets family following Kyle’s death.

Metropolitan Nashville Police said Kyle Yorlets, 24, and a 2013 Carlisle High School grad, was gunned down behind his home in the 3200 block of Torbett Street in West Nashville around 3 p.m. Thursday.

Christian Ferguson and Yorlets were bandmembers of Carverton, a Nashville-based band Yorlets formed with Dillsburg native Michael Curry.

In his post on the GoFundMe site, John Ferguson called Yorlets “a bright and rising star.”

He went on to say that the Yorlets family are dairy farmers, “a life-giving vocation that requires constant care and attention” that means working around the clock despite dealing with the loss of a son and making the arrangements that follow after such a loss.

Ferguson set a goal of $10,000 for the campaign, which will be used to assist with airfare, lodging and travel expenses for the family, transport and funeral expenses for Yorlets and financial aid to pay for assistance at the farm as well as any other expenses that may come up.
