TUCKER, Ga. — Friends and family of a man killed by a teenage driver doing donuts in a parking lot have raised more than $7,500 to help with his funeral expenses.

Spencer Feuerstein, 31, was hit and killed outside of the Tucker store he worked at on Nov. 10. Police said a driver was doing donuts in the parking lot outside of Hollywood Feed when Feuerstein went out to try to stop him.

The driver hit Feuerstein, who later died at the hospital. The driver, who is a juvenile, has not been identified.


Feuerstein leaves behind his widow, 29-year-old Alison Feuerstein.

Her sister, Rachel Lister, set up a GoFundMe to help the family.

“I’ve started this fundraiser to help (Alison) take the time she needs to heal and to help her keep the house she and Spencer bought two years ago for them and their four dogs and one cat,” Lister said.
