Local organizations are remembering John Kilzer by offering suicide crisis support.
Local 24 has learned that former Memphis Tiger basketball player, long-time musician, and minister hanged himself Tuesday.
The Tennessee suicide prevention network teamed up with local hospitals and Kilzer’s former church to offer support to those grieving and to offer advice to help others.
Donna DiClementi with the Living Well Network emphasized, “If someone is struggling, we need not to ignore that in society. We need to reach out to them. ‘It looks like you are not doing well. Tell me what is going on,’ and to be open to their pain.”
If you are hurting or know someone in need, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is 1-800-273-talk, or 1-800-273-8255
