Hundreds of mourners gathered at North Peach Park for candlelight vigil for Peach County sheriff Sgt. Patrick Sondron and deputy Daryl Smallwood Tuesday night.

As the families of two fallen Peach County deputies prepare to lay them to rest, a fund has been set up for their survivors.

Sgt. Patrick Sondron and Daryl Smallwood were gunned down Sunday night while responding to a dispute among neighbors on Hardison Road in Byron.

The Byron Police Department announced that a benefit fund has been set up for the Sondron and Smallwood families.

Those wishing to contribute should visit CB&T bank branches in Byron, Fort Valley, Warner Robins or Perry and speak to a teller about the Patrick Sondron and Daryl Smallwood fund.

Hundreds of people gathered in Byron Tuesday night for a candlelight vigil to honor the men who died in the line of duty.
