PHOENIX -- Friends and family of a Phoenix lawyer who died from gunshot wounds in an office shooting remember him as good man who was always professional.
A memorial service for Mark Hummels was held Tuesday evening at the Orpheum Theater in downtown Phoenix.
The 43-year-old Hummels was the second of three people hit by gunfire to die from the Jan. 30 attack.
Colleagues say Hummels was a rising star in his profession and dedicated to his wife, 9-year-old daughter and 7-year-old son.
"He was the best of us," said David Hummels, the victim's older brother. The older Hummels went on to describe how his younger sibling was an organ donor.
"Mark's kidney and liver saved three lives. His donations: heart valves and skin, connective tissue will save the lives of 70 more.
"People have asked what they can do for the family. Here's one thing, consider being an organ donor, I know that would mean a lot to Mark," said Hummels.
He worked with the Phoenix law firm Osborn Maledon and focused on business disputes, real estate litigation and malpractice defense.
Hummels was a reporter for the Albuquerque Journal and Santa Fe New Mexican before he left to go to law school in 2001. He graduated first in his class.
